Bird Beads



A little playing around this week in the studio. I created some bird beads, just because. I picked up a few tiny bird figures in Michigan and felt like I needed some beads to fit the theme. I'm indulging my playful side more in 2008, so expect a little whimsy from me every now and then. For these birds I wanted to create something that looked like faux terra cotta, as if they were little sculptures from a long neglected garden.

p.s. the birds are ready to fly the coop, you can find them in my etsy shop.
