Where is the bird then Joy? I know I can hear you saying it. Sorry my regular bird watchers but last week got a bit busy and I got a bit side tracked!
I was making a new design of ring. I don't make many enamelled rings and for a good reason. Rings can be bashed about a bit in wearing and enamel does not like being bashed. My new Discoidal rings have enamel in a recessed area to help protect it and they have pretty fired in place stones and lovely textured ring bands.
So far I have completed two with more to come.
This one I have called Creative Mists......
...... and this one is called Shimmering Hot.
So the BAD news is that I did not finish my Bird a Week for last week, but the GOOD news is....
This week I will be making TWO birds so I am caught up again (and no, not one pair of earrings - no cheating here!).
Watch this space for two birdie blog posts before the end of this week. ;-)
