There is something about birds that have always fascinated me, maybe it's because I grew up with the last name Peacock?!? This bird is especially graceful and beautiful, I like how it's head is looking up to the sky. It's a great reminder for us to keep looking up and to keep going no matter what challenges may come. The bird is brass and is soldered on a 1.5-inch brass circle with lead-free solder. The chain is stainless steel and is 30" long, another great layering piece!
