March 21 Black River Raven

Made from a piece of scrap I couldn't resist ... the raven was carved after curing and then filled with liquid clay and oil paint. The piece was sanded and buffed, the raven finished with several coats of high gloss for contrast.
The beads are glass except for ivory stone which was recycled from a necklace I purchased at Thieves Market in Bangkok in the 80's.
Pendant measures 1 1/4 at narrowest point up to 1 3/4 at widest, and is 2 1/2 inches long.
The overall length is 21-22 inches.
The clasp is a silver-plated toggle. Each side is double-crimped and finished with a silver crimp bead
