Bird a Week 8/52 - Fluffy Chicks

This week - two birdies - as I made my first pair of bird earrings for the Bird a Week Challenge!

They are made from Art Clay Silver and I applied the texture with a small brass brass onto the fully dried clay. I find if I give the dry surface a quick wipe with a baby wipe and then brush it with the brass brush I get just the right depth of texture.

I have been making some things other than birds since the start of the year (in case you were wondering!).

Here are a couple of rings. This huge white CZ ring is set with 2mm lab grown rubies....

which go all round the band.

The ring below is enamelled with a central 2mm CZ and 3mm CZs around the band.

See - I'm not totally bird brained ;-)

Have fun
