Raven On

Vintage pocket watch parts
35mm x 45mm approx.

Inspired by the Australian Ravens that live in our area I felt the need to make one. Clever birds that use tools, gather in large groups to have loud conversations, and make a mess of our gum tree as they pick and choose sticks to make a nest.

The watch case that frames the bird is a bit of a Frankenstein, as the steel case, the crown, the bow and the bezel are all assembled from separate sources. The glass is NOS (new old stock).

Ten vintage timepieces contributed to this pendant.
