This charming crow pin/pendant is handcrafted on sterling silver with Jet, Lapis and Charoite in its body! She seems to have found an apple or a beautiful piece of coral to take back to her nest!
Crows are thought to be among our most intelligent birds and the success of the American Crow in adapting to civilization would seem to confirm this. Despite past attempts to exterminate them, crows are more common than ever in farmlands, towns, and even cities, and their distinctive caw! is a familiar sound over much of our land.
Jaci Fischer, originally of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was exposed to art from very early on--watching her father, Fred G. Fischer, who was an artist and art teacher. He painted, carved wood and leather, made jewelry, pottery and drew portraits. He also built a house, garages and a very large rocking horse for his daughter. All that certainly helped direct her future as an artist. She received her BFA at the University of Northern Colorado and went on to earn her MFA in drawing and design at the University of Colorado in Boulder. After graduate school she was juried into the First and Second Colorado Biennial Art Exhibition at the Denver Art Museum.
In addition to her plein aire and portraits, Jaci has recently launched a large series of contemporary silver and mixed stone jewelry. The styles are hand constructed silver of animal images.
