American Bald Eagle Earrings
By Evergreen, Colorado Artists Barb and Tom Adkins
This Eagle serenely sat about 50 ft. above our heads while we visited Home Lake in Monte Vista,CO. What a thrill!
These are hand cut sculptures out of solid Walnut. Each is a relief with each bird has a defined wing and is defined from the branch it sits on. Each branch has to be individually cut and rounded smooth. There is a front and back to each bird.
The necklace has been carefully hand cut with a scroll saw. Each section is cut separately by stopping the saw and taking the saw blade out of the saw and inserting the blade into a new area of the wood. A tiny hole must be drilled into that individual section of the wood first, the blade can then be inserted into that hole to start the cutting of that area or section of the piece. After all the cutting is done each area must have all the edges carefully hand sanded and rounded for you to wear it.
The tree branches are fully 3 Dimensional. If you prefer the Eagle can also be more fully dimensional.
This necklace can be made from Walnut, Oak, Purple Heart, or Babinga woods.
Pierced or clip Earrings are available.
All jewelry can be custom ordered. Please email or call us. Thank you.
