Meadowlark Cutout Necklace
On this intricately detailed round pendant necklace, the shape of a meadowlark, the Kansas state bird, is cut out of rich copper. The pendant, on a copper chain, is made from the original roof of the Kansas State Capitol. The roof was replaced in 2013 and the copper made available to the Kansas Historical Society and Kansas Historical Foundation for use in products to be sold in the Capitol Store. In 1937 Kansas adopted the Western Meadowlark as the state bird because of its abundance in the area. The brown, yellow, and black bird makes its nest on the ground in a clump of grass.
