The Ritz

About this design:

This is another birdhouse...ya think I have birdhouses on the brain? I have been working on this one for quite awhile! each piece is individually cut and soldered. I even handmade the little vine and leaves. It was a very difficult piece and I learned from my mistakes for the next time (maybe). Now I need to sand, polish, patina and finally wax it.


brass, etch, Copper, copper wire.

    It’s about an inch in height and width. The next time I make this I will not cut individual pieces (sides, front, back,etc). I found another much simpler method to form the “house”. Thanks for the kudo’s!
