Artist Statement: This small song bird skull 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. I like it because it has weight to it without being clunky and it is easy for you to polish at home.
It's a bit more difficult to cast than pewter because of the higher melting point. It's worth it.
I include a 16 inch silver plated or gold plated chain. Please tell me which chain you prefer when you check out.
The 18k gold plate and silver plated versions are now in stock. Please see those listings as well.
I also cast this skull in Sterling Silver and Brass
Please have a look in my store for these options.
