Good Bird Bad Bird

Made for a show of the same name. The subtitle of this ring is "bad day at the bird bath". Many people see the intended humor in this piece. On the other hand, we have actually recieved death threats in response to this ring. Probably an ornithologist art critic with no sense of humor. Carved bone and ebony, artisan glass, amythest

We were shocked when this happened the first time (yes, it has happened more than once). Some people, it seems, are intent on reading the crudest of racial bigotry into this piece, and taking great offense by what they want to see. This is unfortunate, as our intent was the use traditional color symbolism. Oh well.

I love this ring!

Death threats? For this? People must have too much time on their hands and not enough cells in their brains.
