A noble falcon, the king's companion. People say they know each other's true names and sometimes it almost seems as if they are one and the same.
This is an extra large feather accompanied by an old shield with the shining symbol of the king's crown. The silk was dyed with tannin and iron and the shield made from copper and given a dark patina.
The feather is white with a pattern of light and dark greys with some amber around the middle. The back is white and pale amber with a dark grey center and a dark grey streak.
The pendant hangs on a long adjustable chain which closes with a handmade hook clasp. All metal is antiqued sterling silver apart from the copper shield.
Size: the pendant is 8 cm (3 1/4 inches) long and 5 cm (2 inches) wide. The chain can be worn at 48 cm (19 inches) and 56 cm (22 inches).
As with all textiles, storing the necklace out of direct sunlight is recommended to keep it at its best.
