Questions and Answers

How do I clean my Black Hills Gold Jewelry?

Care and leaning of your Black Hills Gold Jewelry is very simple!

It is recommended to use distilled water along with a mild cleanser and a soft toothbrush. That’s it!

If your results do not satisfy you than I recommend you take it to your local jewelry store and have it done professionally.

What is Bronze Cold Cast?

"Cold Cast Bronze Statues" also known as bronze resin. This technique is a blending of bronze powder and epoxy resin to produce a material which is then applied to the interior of a silicone mold. Subsequent applications with this material then produce a shell into which an armature (wire frame) can be constructed. The mold is then filled with a blend of resin and metal powders and is left to cure. Once the cold cast has set it is then dipped in copper or nickel and given an antiqued finish.

What is the "Lost Wax Process"?

The lost wax process of bronze casting, which appeared nearly six thousand years ago, the artist first sculpts in soft wax; then makes a rubber mold of the wax model. From the rubber mold he creates multiple wax impressions of the original. Each wax impression is encased in a ceramic shell and placed in an oven; with temperatures exceeding fifteen hundred degrees, the wax melts rapidly. The ceramic shell is packed in sand and molten bronze is poured into the shell. When the bronze cools, the ceramic shell is broken. The bronze casting is then finished with meticulous handwork to capture and enhance every detail of the original wax model.

American Bald Eagle Updates

American Bald Eagle Updates

  1. The day has come for the Eaglets to be set free to venture off into the wilderness to begin their new life!  Indy and Franklin have successfully raised three Eaglets one male and two female. All three were named and tagged before their release.


    Eaglets Release
     
    On Monday 8-13-12 the door to the hack tower was opened, Ranger (male) was the first to jump to the edge and take in the view.

    After about an hour or so he began to venture out on the wooden perches on the hack tower getting the feel of the wind in his wings. 
    He then took the big leap and flew off over the Douglass lake area. 

    You can watch his departure on video here. Ranger’s Flight 
     
    Eagles Braveheart & Griffith
     
    Griffith and Braveheart on the other hand are not as eager to leave their “room with a view”.  They are still trying to decide if they are ready to leave yet or not. The door was opened again today for them but right now they seem content on just looking out. You can watch them on live feed by clicking here.  

          
    For more information you can visit the American Eagle Foundations Facebook Page.

  2. On Thursday June 21st the decision was made by Al Cecere to move the eaglets from the nest to their “room with a view” also known as the hack tower.  The hack tower is located at Douglas Lake in Tennessee this is where the eaglets will call home for approximately the next 6 weeks until they will be released into the wild.

    I would like to give a special thanks to Barbara Wilder for creating this beautiful slide show of Independence and Franklin and their eaglets entitled AEF Eagle Nest Cam 2012

    You will also find detailed information, videos and lots of pictures taken by the American Eagle Foundation on Independence and Franklin and their eaglets on the AEF Facebook page.

  3. Across our nation, governors are declaring American Eagle Day to be celebrated on June 20th in recognition of our nation's symbol and its recovery in the lower 48 states. Our U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have also issued special resolutions.

    The Senate and House resolutions read, in part:

    Resolved: that the Senate (and House) encourages
    (A) educational entities, organizations, businesses, conservation groups, and government agencies with a shared interest in conserving endangered species to collaborate and develop educational tools for use in the public schools of the United States; and
    (B) the people of the United States to observe American Eagle Day with appropriate ceremonies and other activities.
     
    After nearly disappearing from most of the United States decades ago, the bald eagle is now flourishing across the nation. The removal of the Bald Eagle from the "threatened and endangered" species list was announced by Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne on June 28, 2007.

    "It's fitting that our national symbol has also become a symbol of the great things that happen through cooperative conservation," said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director H. Dale Hall. "Eagles could not have recovered without a support network of strong partnerships among government at all levels, tribes, conservation organizations, the business community and individual citizens."

  4. Indy, Franklin and babies
    Independence and Franklin are a pair of American Bald Eagles who reside in the Eagle Mountain Sanctuary at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. This unique pair has been together since April 2000 in their own separate breeding aviary.  In the first year together Indy did not lay any eggs, however in spring of 2002 the pair laid their first set of eggs.  This year the pair has nurtured 3 eggs and all three eggs hatched successfully and the babies are thriving and growing quickly.
    In celebration of Independence and Franklin’s new arrivals we are now offering a 10% discount on both of our Eagle and Babies statues.

  5. My, my, how times flies two of the baby Eagles are one week old today and the third will be tomorrow.  These comical little “bobble heads” are such the treasure to watch, it is amazing just how active these little guys are. 
    When they are not eating, sleeping or tucked under mom they keep themselves busy doing what is referred to as “combative behavior” right from the start. It’s almost like a boxing match with beaks. They are so funny to watch I just love it when they are getting tired and one of them has just had enough, he (or she) will just drop their head and “play dead”.
    It’s just hilarious!

  6. Baby Eagles
    The Baby Eagles are here and doing well!  Even though there was a bit of distance between the laying of the eggs, all three eaglets emerged from their shells in just over 24 hours.  Indy and Franklin are proud parents and are taking excellent care of their young; feedings come frequently so keep checking in to watch this amazing site. Remember the cameras are on 24 hours a day.  Click the link below to take a peek they are so adorable.

  7. Independence and Franklin

    We would like to introduce you to Independence, a female bald Eagle also known as “Indy” who resides in the Eagle Mountain Sanctuary in Dollywood.  Indy arrived at the American Eagle Foundation in May of 1994, at that time she was still recovering from an infection in wounds to her left wingtip.  Her condition required rehabilitation and recovery time to heal and get her strength back.  Once healed being a non-releasable bird she was then moved to the Eagle Mountain Sanctuary. Indy is landing on the branch while Franklin is standing guard.
    In April 2000 Indy and a male bald Eagle at the sanctuary named Franklin chose each other as mates, when the eagles had fully bonded they were then moved to their own separate breeding aviary.  In the first year together Indy did not lay any eggs, however in spring of 2002 the pair laid their first set of eggs.  Both Franklin and Indy took turns caring for their eggs, one egg was infertile but the other hatched on May 9th and the baby was healthy.  Indy and Franklin proved to be good parents and good care of their baby for about 8 weeks.  At that time the eaglet was moved to an artificial nesting tower on Douglas Lake in East Tennessee and was released at 12 weeks of age.
    Indy and Franklin are now nurturing three eggs in their nest at the Dollywood sanctuary.  Indy laid her 1st egg on March 24th the second on March 27th and the third on March 31st.  To ensure the safety of both the Eagles and the eggs the American Eagle Foundation has installed a webcam on their nest.
    To help support the American Eagle Foundation, Come Fly with the Eagles has officially adopted Indy and will be doing the same for Franklin shortly.  For more information on adopting birds of prey and ways to help support the American Eagle Foundation visit them at www.eagles.org
     
    We will be following Indy and Franklin during this adventure of hatching and nurturing their young.   Visit the link below to take a look, they really are very amazing birds!

  8. On March 30th we had the pleasure of being given a private tour of the American Eagle Foundations bird care facility in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. What a fascinating place!
    We were graciously greeted by Joanne whom gave us a very warm welcome and introduced us to the two beautiful parrots who reside in the offices at the AEF.  Joanne then introduced us to Beth who gave us the tour, first stop was the incubation room.  Unfortunately we could only peek in through the door because it is extremely important that the eaglets have no contact with humans even while they are developing in the eggs.
    We then proceeded to the yard of the facility where we happen to run into the president Al Cecere and had the honor of chatting with him for a few minutes about what we are doing to help bring awareness and support to the AEF.
    In the facility yard there are several separate “barns” where the birds are kept.  One barn is for rehabilitation of birds that are in process of healing to be released to the wild again or to be released to a different facility to call home due to being severely wounded making them non-releasable to the wild.  There is also a quarantine barn, two mating barns, the outer exercise yard and the main facility where all of the show birds including Challenger and Tuck amongst others call home when they are not out performing at Dollywood or other educational events.

    Challenger
    Beth was an exceptional guide taking time to show us each of the magnificent birds that were home that day starting with Challenger.  Some of you may already know who he is but for those of you who do not, Challenger is the first Bald Eagle in the history of the United States to be trained to free-fly into major league sports stadiums during the presentation of the National Anthem.

    Cherokee
    Another beautiful bird we were introduced to was Cherokee, a very large female Golden Eagle; she was found orphaned in California in 1992 and was determined to be non-releasable due to human imprinting.  She is one of the performing stars in the “Wings of America” bird show in Dollywood.
    Kurt, Beth and Keawah
    We also had the pleasure of meeting Keawah a beautiful Red Tailed Hawk up close and personal, what a beautiful bird.  While some of the birds were entertaining at the “Wings of America” bird show that day, there were many more at the facility patiently waiting their turn for their daily exercises or to be the next one to go and perform at Dollywood.
    It is an absolutely amazing thing that the good people at the American Eagle Foundation are doing, with the help of many volunteers and contributions from organizations and ordinary people they are ensuring that the American Bald Eagle shall fly free for many years to come.

  9. For about a year now there has been a buzz in and around the community of Brick New Jersey, why?  Because there is a site there that is absolutely amazing!

     

    Miraculously a pair of American Bald Eagles has built their nest in the top of a cell phone tower, yes a cell phone tower.  What an extraordinary site and we have pictures of this phenomenal event thanks to one of our customers Barbara Knoll.

    Although this specific tower is in a location near a water source, nesting in a cellular tower is highly irregular for the American Bald Eagle. This tower is in a populated area (which is another unusual choice for a nest) where people passing by can stop and enjoy the wondrous site.

  10. 5 Dollar Gold Eagle Coin1 Dollar Silver Eagle CoinHalf Dollar American Eagle Coin

    On January 15, 2008, the United States Mint issued three limited-edition commemorative coins. They celebrate the dramatic comeback of the Bald Eagle to America's lands, waterways and skies. They also mark the 35th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Coin sales are deposited into the American Eagle Fund for support of Bald Eagle projects nationwide.

    The coins are no longer available through the U.S. Mint (sales ended in December 2008), but the American Eagle Foundation (AEF) now has a limited supply of these valuable collectables available for sale - including the impressive half-dollar clad coin featuring the stately image of the celebrity Bald Eagle "Challenger"

  11. In 2010, a Golden Eagle was accidentally caught in 2 steel leg-hold traps which were baited with deer meat. At first, the eagle caught a talon in his left foot; then, struggling to free itself, the eagle fell into the second trap which tore into its breast. Struggling against both traps, the eagle sustained more and more damage to its chest. When it was discovered, the eagle was taken to the University of Tennessee, School of Veterinary Medicine and treated for its injuries. The talon had to be amputated, and the eagle was then taken to the American Eagle Foundation for rehabilitation.

    On November 15, 2011, in Shady Valley, Tennessee, this eagle - its chest wounds completely healed - was released. Shady Valley Nature Conservancy was chosen because the habitat was ideal for this type of bird and for the prey they favor.
