“The piece is beautiful. Nice clean casting, and the shipping was so fast I thought they must live next door.” - curiousgood

This piece is overstocked and on sale temporarily.

I produced this small song bird skull.1 3/4 inches long. It is cast from solid lead free German Silver or as it commonly known, white metal. It is the metal of choice for the fashion jewelry trade here in NYC and around the world. It is plated in silver.

Having been asked repeatedly if this is a suitable piece for men, I offer you this piece shot on American super model Simon Tham of Calvin Klein and Rag & Bone fame. Yes ladies, you're welcome.

For the record I was making these long before I saw one like it in the Harry Potter movie. It's not a copy.

Unfinished pot metals like pewter turn grey over time and lose the shine. If you like that look I do have an oxidized black version listed here in my shop.

The 18k gold plate versions is now in stock. Please see that listings as well.

LOOK : I have several other types of skulls listed and I am adding more all the time please have a look in my shop. Favorite me so you can find me again.

All of my cast pieces were designed, cast and finished here in NYC. We are working together to foster the local small scale economy of people who make things. We strive to thrive.

About the skull:


Serene was walking the dogs up in the Adirondacks a few years back. It was spring and they found a deer skull with the antlers mostly chewed down by porcupines. They being dogs did what they do and tossed the skull about stirring up the leaves. She let them play and noticed something white poking up out of the leaves that didn't look like part of the deer skull. It was a bird skull.
Now those of you who like me have been pickin and poking through the woods for years know the odds of this. I have had some really nice finds. I have never found a bird skull.
I was so pleased when she decided to pass it along.

"Blue!" Keith the wax carver says. " Der ain't noooo way dat shkull is gonna keeyast." " Aw come'on you can cast anything" I say. " It's too thin! there's not likea milimeta theya."
"Biker Steve says it just needs beefed up with a little wax in the thin spots" I retort. " Steve said that?" he eyes me dubiously, one thick Irish eyebrow. " Yeah he did." I said pointedly.

This piece took a month. When it came out of the mold I knew we really had something.
The bail in the back is cast as part of the piece so it is really sturdy. Also we made it wide enough to part any kind of chain or cord through it. Your descendants will be digging it up from the ruins. It's not plastic.
