In South America there is a bird of mythic beauty and nobility, with long tail feathers
and a strange, stout head.
It is both adorable and almost eerie in its build, so unlike
North American birds.
Legend says that if a quetzal is taken into captivity, the bird ends its own life
and so it has become an international symbol of liberty
in its home countries.
I hammer engraved one on a sturdy sterling plaque
and strung the picture
on fluorite by hand
a gorgeous rainbow
to accompany this symbolic creature
and all its beauty.
The piece fits as would a 16 inch necklace.
