Bird a Week 5/52

My Bird a Week 5/52 piece is a bit of fun ;-) 

It was my second attempt for this week as the first one did not turn out as planned and now a rescue project for another week! So I had to have a rethink on Thursday and came up with this idea. Just beaks and eyes really.

It is made using Art Clay Silver and then wires were added using my Enamelled Accents technique and finally it was enamelled and patinated. It took me longer than planned as all the wire elements are quite tiny and very fiddley!
I don't make many brooches, not sure why really,  but people are always asking for them so this may be the first of many!

I decorated the back with with a few stars set with 1.5mm CZs.
