silver + sapphire miniature sparrow skull

This dainty solid sterling silver sparrow has been cast with a lab grown blue sapphire embedded in it. Instead of traditional stone setting where the stone is placed after the silver piece has been made, here the molten silver was cast directly around the stone.  

Skull and chain have been oxidized and buffed leaving a lovely dark patina in the recesses. Chain is sterling silver and 20" long.
