WCC 8/52 - Bronze Jalien Alpha

This weeks critter is another Jalien!! He is Bronze Jalien Alpha and is a Goldie Bronze pendant set with a 3mm lab ruby.
When I fired him and took him out of the kiln he came out with the most wonderful kiln patina, in the photo below. I did debate keeping this finish but when I put a sealer on it the colours dulled a bit, and also I worry that the high spots will wear smooth anyway and ruin the look. So he was duly polished and with a heat patina applied came out as above - and I really like him! )

Here is his poem - short but sweet!! lol
An alien face
From outer space
A Jalien race
Have fun!! :)

WCC 6/52 - Under the Moon

Now this weeks critter is an interesting one!
Here we have (I thought!!) a cute little owl sitting under the moon. He is fine silver made using Art Clay Silver and has 2mm orange cubic zirconium eyes.
BUT - I posted him onto Facebook and everyone was seeing a green man/ grumpy man with a moustache!! Do you see him? I really struggled till someone told me exactly how he was, and now I see him!!
It just goes to show - we should always have our eyes open to all interpretations in life :)
Anyway on the basis of this being an owl...
here is his poem...
In the dark of the night
Under the moon
He sits on his branch a hooting
But when the sun rises
He will be gone
Back to his nest a roosting
I would love to know what you see when you look at this!!
Have fun!

Weekly Critter Challenge 5/52 - Flutterbies

Several critters this week - Butterflies!
Pretty pink enamelled butterflies with sparkly rainbow 4mm Cubic Zirconium in a fine silver pendant.
Here is the poem
Flittering, fancily, fluttering by
Flashes of fuchsia fleetingly fly
I think this pendant a bit of a Japanese feel to it, what do you think?
Have fun!
