Bird a week 52/52 - Dead as a Dodo!

This is it! Bird number 52 of 52. I have made it through the whole year on the Bird a Week Challenge. This little Dodo seemed to sum it all up for me as the last bird of the year.

He is made out of fine silver using Art Clay Silver. He is quite heavy weighing in at about 18g.

I have so enjoyed this challenge. During the year I have learnt a lot, tried new techniques and surprised myself at times!

I am so grateful to everyone who has followed or taken part in this challenge. Don't worry I will be doing more challenges in 2012. Later this week I will tell you all about what I have planned but there will definitely be a few more birds to come :)

Here is the final Haiku

  4. Thank Ali, Happy New Year to you and Phil. I have to say I am normally useless at sticking to things so feel especially pleased having made it to the end of the challenge! See you at Lancing! Joy x

  5. I love him and you had done a fantastic job.

    Challenges like New Years resolutions are too easy for me to put to one side in favour of real life.
    I so admire you for keeping to your goals and accomplishing an important personal challenge.

  6. He is amazing Joy.. So life like.. If you know what I mean !!
    Happy New Year to you and Gerald.. I think you should do dogs next..
    I have a small mental one if you need a model at all:-))

  7. What an amazing challenge - thank you for allowing us to be a part of it.

  8. Thanks everyone. Just about to post about 2012 challenges!

  9. Hi Joy,

    The dodo looks awesome.
    I also like the 5/52. The 6/52 is also well design and shows good harmony, although more common.

    Wish you a prosperous 2012,
