Raven Darling or Darling Raven is a die struck design. Solid sheet of 14g silver is used in my hydraulic press, which forms the metal in to a hand carved "die" that was carved over hundreds of hours possible before the industrial revolution. Or right after it. The back has some hills and valleys from the die striking process. I wanted to leave this piece with as much silver as I could and have it be a bit less "girly" and more unisex in design.
Her eyes are genuine Marcasite.
limited edition of 3. These were so labor intensive and time consuming to make, I am not sure if I will revisit the design. The Raven's possibly but the "darling" was the most difficult to get a decent pressing with consistent results.
As you can see, all 3 are very similar. Each is slight different due to the handmade nature, yours will be randomly chosen from the 3 shown.*Signed with BL hallmark
