A gorgeous flying snowy owl, handmade from polymer clay by a talented artist in the U.K. He is very detailed and painted carefully. The owl has been electroformed on the back and edges in pure copper and was given a hand applied dark patina.
On the bail, I’ve added a copper crescent moon, and also a tiny moon charm from the clasp.
The leather cord is thicker and is approx. 16″L. The entire piece is lightweight because of the materials, and fits comfortably.
A unique and totally gorgeous owl talisman piece you’ll treasure for years! Perfect for the owl lover or anyone who (whooo) connects with this beautiful animal.

Electroforming is a unique process of combining chemistry and alchemy to take natural objects and plate them in copper. It can take up to three days to create a single piece. Each piece has been given a dark patina and good old fashioned polishing with steel wool. My work has been clear coated to halt the oxidation process and to keep your skin from turning green. Over time, the copper on your piece may need a coating of clear nail polish to continue to keep the oxidation to a minimum.
Each piece is made by me in my studio right here in northwest Indiana, and is one-of-a-kind. The stones I use spend time under moonlight for cleansing before I work with them. I choose my materials very carefully for quality and provenance, including cruelty-free and eco-harvesting. All purchases come carefully packaged and ready for gift-giving!
Sincerely, your Stone Sister,
