As the skull of the bird's beak comes down on the forehead I have to warn wearers that you should not wear the in the wind!! The skull is very fragile but as long as you tret it with care, it is durable. Please allow up to 4 weeks for this piece. All the feathers have been sustainably sourced in Sussex from road kill, or the local organic game purveyor. The skull as the center piece is hand foraged locally from the South Downs. The process is lengthy depending on stock.
