The brooch pictured in this listing has been sold, but I will make a similar pin upon ordering.

I made this bird brooch for an Etsymetal Challenge (EMJC) which we had to create a piece inspired by Alexander Calder. Alexander Calder made many wire pieces, especially large brooches. Animals were, among other themes one of his favorites. I decided to make animals for the challenge because they are also a favorite theme and inspiration for me. This bird is inspired by a bird original from the Argentine Pampas called "Garza" (a type of heron). I photographed it in my garden last summer. Calder made his pieces with rivets and cold connections, but I made a few solder joins on critical areas to made the piece stronger and hammered it flat.

Size: 4" wide by 5" high
