RECYCLED STEEL CARDINAL ORNAMENT
When we first moved to our farmhouse, we saw cardinals around every turn. In fact, there's a section of our daily country drive that we refer to as "Cardinal Alley" because of the sheer number of them. Eventually, I got curious. So I decided to learn more about them. And what I found was so unbelievably beautiful...
In many traditions, cardinals have also been known as the most notable spiritual messenger. It is widely believed that when a cardinal is spotted, it is a loved one paying you a visit from Heaven. They arrive when we need them most, when we need spiritual guidance or to feel the love of someone we lost. They are God's messengers.
Once I learned all of the above, I knew the cardinal needed a special place in my shop. And this keepsake ornament was the perfect way to include it. Give it to a loved one who has just lost someone important. It's a meaningful gift they are sure to love.

Made from salvaged, recycled steel which means that each sheet (batch) will differ in tint and sheen. Some will be dark, some will be shiny, and some will have slight rustic wear. Each elephant is different, much like the beautiful friends in our lives.
A beautiful patina of rust can also be brought out by a minimal amount of exposure to humidity. If the rust is unwelcome you may rub grade 3 coarse steel wool over the top to remove any and/or all rust.
