They're intelligent, loving, tenacious, survivalists whose iridescence is akin to built in jewelry. Pigeons stand tall, and always look elegant. They tend to be taken for granted because of their ubiquity: a metaphor worthy of exploration.
Pigeons are the underdogs of the bird world.
I always root for Team Underdog.
The jewelry I create is a reflection of this pigeon walk. It is versatile and adaptable; raw and rugged; it's loveliness in one fine package. And then you strut!
