I made this last weekend on a whim - I found some super sparkly Swarovski crystals online and wanted to incorporate them into a silhouette design somehow. The whole piece was cut and finished with a little spot added to the design so that I could glue the crystal and make it look like the bird has snatched it from some treasure. The silhouette is laser cut and I've cleaned up the steel so it has really clean detailed edges and a satiny brushed finish. I tried to get a better shot of the crystal's sparkle in the last photograph. They are so pretty when the light hits them!  Smiley

I love it! Especially since it would be perfect for me to wear as my name is Raven. LOL

That's beautiful! It's a great depiction of those birds' funny habit of collecting shiny things.  Cheesy

That is really really cool!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
