A pile of bird beads

15 Jun

I just checked, and I’ve only been making birds for about three weeks, but it feels like it’s been ages. I have made boatloads of them in that time, learning how to pull a slightly curved beak, what makes a more pleasing bird shape, and I’m getting a better handle on perfectly indented eyes.

So, what to do with all the birds piling up? Some of them are becoming earrings and posted on my etsy site, And the rest have been going up on bead auction pages on Facebook, for others to make the birds into baubles.

Hot pink seems to be a perennial favorite, since they are so bright and cheery, but my personal favorite are the Cosmic Birds. Check out this nebular goodness!

I love their little unusual galaxy heads, and I’m totally going to make more. Space birds, assemble!

Some other recent favorites:

I want hundreds of them!

On a side note, I’m coming closer to achieving my venus fly trap dreams. I have to remake the cane, but I think it might do the trick..
