A Little Birdie Told Me


About this design:

I love birdhouse and am always looking for ways to incorporate them into my pieces. I came up with an idea to make some pendants. This is my first one. I used a metal picture corner and cut out a piece to fit the corner. I etched the house, added patina,used some rub-n-buff and added birdie!

Components:

metal corners,brass, etch,brass wire,brass bird
