The sheer number of times, I sat down to write this post, is ridiculous..and it has been about three days since I started on this... ! It has been one thing after the other, the biggest issue being that our daughter is down with a severe cold.. and it is not the fact that she is unwell, but that she cannot go to school and has to be entertained 24/7 , that is really taxing ... !
As part of a surprise order, I had to make three sets each for two sisters ..young girls of 13, and 7 ..And so I decided to make one birdie necklace for each. First I chose the combination of beads for the necklace and then tinted the Cold porcelain to make the birds . It would have been easier to put an eye-pin on to each bird and let it cure, but I somehow thought it would have spoiled the look of the birds.. so I made cages to attach them on, so they could swing on the necklaces ... !
I just could not resist playing with them a bit..made a tiny nest and mixed up itty bits of left over CP to make some eggs and just posed the 'family' for a click !
Here the birdies are posing with their hand crafted, metal wire perches and matching beads. I was pretty pleased that my color - mixing ability did not let me down.
And finally, here they are , on the necklaces,.. I think they look pretty cute on their perches. What do YOU think ??
Unbelievably , from beginning to end of this post, I was interrupted 4 times already !!
