Pelican Tears: Deer Bone, Copper, Pearls

430.00

I love shoulders. I love shoulders on people, on cats, on deer. I love watching them move. A friend of mine found the remains of a long departed deer in the woods, and called me to ask if I wanted the bones; when the cache included this one perfect scapula, I was about as excited as I was at seven when my mom got me the enormous stuffed panda I had desperately wanted for my birthday (I was a materialistic child).
And now, allowed to play with it, the lines of the bone so perfectly complement those of the breathing neck underneath it- the tendons, the collarbones, the flicker of breath through the throat. Many little pearls run along it's spine, emphasizing the piece's own curves.

This is the kind of jewelry that belongs on display when it isn't being worn- hung on a wall, or in a shadowbox, or simply placed on a shelf. Despite being bone it is both durable and comfortable- it is fit perfectly to the shape of the human neck.
