Soooo, I was coming to make a listing here but uh, it's sold already [>.< <3 =kawaiimon
] so I'll just show it up because I'm rather happy with how it turned out D:
I've been calling it a phoenix gorget but really, I meant it to be a peacock -haha.
Hand tooled leather [with ye olde trusty awl and the back of a paint brush] -original design done freehand, then dyed in red and deep, chocolate brown.
I'd originally planned to make a pauldron with this design, but the style I'd planned for it didn't work with the way I was drawing the bird so I went for a gorget instead. I still plan to make that pauldron, I'll just have to come up with a different design because I don't want to repeat this again on such a small scale [the tail feathers - omg x__x]
As you can see in the shots above where I'm holding it, it's small - 2.5 inches across maybe? 3.5 at most, and only 1.5-2 or so high. The metal ends have 2 adjustable chains with dangly tear drops that jingle every time it moves [sounds so pretty and it was completely unintentional -lol]
I had a hard time giving this one up, but I'm really happy with where it's going. I expect lots of pics ;3;
