Following up on last week’s review of the newest releases from PAXSUZbeads, today brings an in-depth look of The Eagle*. Since we’re coming up on 4th of July, a celebration of our Independence, the eagle is the perfect representation of this holiday. Known for its majesty and nobility, the bald eagle is the fiercest bird in the sky. Driven almost to the brink of extinction, this animal spent almost 3 decades on the Endanged Species List and was only taken off in 2007. Now that their numbers are once again healthy and we can enjoy their presence for generations to come.
Suzanne Hopping, the brilliant artist behind this brand, has reproduced the eagle in a stunning manner as a bead. The entire charm is spherical, similar to the original Pax, and embossed with the eagle design. The bird is shown in a proud position with its wings spread wide and head held high. The rendering of the eagle is very much in the art deco style, with pointed wing tips and geometric feathers, it complements the PAXSUZbeads Art Deco bead perfectly. The eagle is displayed on both sides of the charm and two concentric circles sit at the top of the birds.
PAXSUZbeads charms are large cored and compatible with any bracelet brand. The Eagle and Suzanne’s other wonderful creations can be found on her Etsy shop, PAXSUZbeads and she ships from Australia. Also check out my reviews on her other charms, including Art Deco, Diamond Heart, Universal Cross, Prayer Wheel, and Pax. I decided to pair this magnificent bird with earthy colors and minerals as it is a beautiful part of nature.
