This is a Raven I have been working on (Frowning Francis pattern) ..Several years ago I made a bird for a friend. I named her Sandy, put shells in her hair ...My friend likes the beach...Since then they bought a Beach House and that's where sandy lives. I thought she could use a friend and what I've seen so far of the beach house, I felt some Steam Punk might fit right in so Edgar was born. He is made from muslin that gessoed and painted...Gears from old watches came in handy. I didn't have a propeller so I made one from an aluminum plate...his goggles are from a watch bracelet the nose piece made from the same paper plate then all were painted with rusting paint. When I make another, and I will, I will use heavier wire for his legs...but other then that he was a blast to create. I'll be back later...my brother just stopped in for a visit.
The crown charm has a sepcial meaningnote the K on the key and the shell is from Long Island NY...my friend lives on the West coast..and a butterfly because it represents me.
