Copeland Jewelers was founded in Austin in 1983. We enthusiastically support local live music as an integral part of what makes our city one of the best places to live on the planet. With permission, we’ve created this necklace in gold or silver, using the unique flying raven logo of the Black Fret organization that so embodies the vibe of this groundbreaking group.
