Bird a Week 12/52 - La Fenice

Last week we went to Venice for a few nights to celebrate my 50th birhday. We had a wonderful time. One of the places we went to have a look at was the very grand Teatro La Fenice. Inspired by this wonderful place I decided to make a very theatrical enamelled phoenix for this weeks Bird.

Made from Art Clay Silver and enamelled, it is patinated with Liver of Sulphur and set with 2mm CZs. It measures approx 45mm x 48mm.

This is the equally theatrical reverse!

All very OTT isn't it :)

I have put two of my pieces of jewellery into an auction with the proceeds going to help in Japan. It starts running next week and I will post all the details here. The two lots are my Peace Doves which were my BIrd a Week last week and also a rainbow enamelled heart. Watch this space for details on how to bid...
