My, What Big Eyes You Have!

Quirky and creative, this metal owl pin by Lisa and Scott Cylinder of Chickenscratch design studio is inspired by the tin toys from the first half of the 20th century. Handmade from nickel silver, copper, resin and enamel paint, the wise owl pin is intended to have a folk art appearance, rather than the look of a traditional piece of jewelry. With its playful design, unique materials and charming personality, this curious little owl is sure to fly right into your heart. Handmade in Oley, Pennsylvania.

Made in

Lisa and Scott Cylinder began collaborating on jewelry pieces in 1988. Both are schooled jewelers and metalsmiths with over twenty years experience. They have displayed our one-of-a-kind pieces throughout the U.S. and Europe.

The ideas for their jewelry are derived from numerous sources: nature, modern art, folklore and pop culture, to name a few. They blend these influences into clever narratives and play-on-words. Conceptually, they describe their work as a "hybrid of Picasso mixed with a Hanna-Barbera cartoon!"

Technically their jewelry pieces are made using simple, sometimes primitive processes. The construction of the work resembles tin toys from the first half of the 20th Century. It is intended to have a folk art appearance, rather than the look of a traditional piece of jewelry.

Most importantly, the work is a collaboration on many levels; a blend of inspirations and sources; a blend of observation and imagination; a blend of two people's ideas and techniques. Lisa and Scott believe their jewelry is very accessible due to its humorous, narrative nature, and the viewer's need to interact with the piece for its story to be told.

      Comments about Wise Owl Pin:

      These days it is becoming harder to find
      interesting pins. When I saw this owl I knew I had to have it. A nice variety of metals and
      textures. Great craftsmanship. The pin back is
      sturdy and easy to close. I have gotten so
      many compliments on it.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The pin arrived very quickly.
