There was a romantic flair about this bird as I was making him.  Something showy and spirited and classic.  The deep, black embellishments, that red, red rose...he looks quite dapper, don't you think?  His beak is two embellishments made into one - the first was a silver spike pendant which was placed inside a black, metal, spiral earring.  His wings are vintage earrings, his tail, a thin metal feather pendant.  His head is crested with an old bobby pin and adorned with black beads.  He wears a band of black beads on his neck, with that red rose completing the dressed-up look.  He measures 6.5 inches long by 4.25 inches tall by 3.25 inches wide.
