Materials: Real preserved feral pigeon foot, brass cap, copper wire-wrapping, pull-tab from a soda can, charm that resembles hubcap on a car. Nickel-plated ball-chain and keychain ring are all scavenged from old keychains. Actually...you could say everything on this piece is scavenged from somewhere (well, a lot of my stuff is to begin with), which was the focus of this.

The pigeon. The classic urban totem. Survival, endurance, tenacity, grace in flight. One of many things that describe an animal that is so versatile in even the most deep city environments. This would be perfect for anyone engaging in urban paganism or shamanism.

I'm asking $12.50 (price includes shipping), and will post it up on my store later tomorrow, unless someone else is interested.

These things are so cool. How durable are the preserved bird feet?

Oh, pretty durable, I'd say. Not a single one has broken on me, and this pigeon foot is definitely solid. Now, I wouldn't recommend exposing them to moisture for too long, as they are just dried feet. I am exploring into possibly getting some sort of varnish to coat them with, to waterproof them a bit more. The foot I keep for myself I've worn in all types of weather though, and usually all I have to do is slip it in some clothes or in a pocket for it to be safe. Like uhh...a lucky rabbit's foot? lol.
