About this design:

I’ve had my eye on this bird for a long time. I finally broke down and got it. I’ve also had this polymer clay log for awhile. Still in my nature theme frame of mind.

Components:

Gaea bird (LB), polymer clay log, Czech glass dahlia beads, the yellow flowers and melon round with blue wash. 6mm pacific opal shimmer beads. Antique brass findings. Linhasita wax cord for the nest.

    Wonderful! Hope Gaea sees this, as it is a perfect use of the bird. Great work.

    I have a PC log and a brass one too. I’ve got some little Lampwork beads I want to get for them. You have really got some statement nature themed pieces lately! Hope you’re putting all of them in your shop!Hope it’s doing well.

    This is a real winner! I could see a real cat fight for this one in your shop.

    I’m really enjoying your nature themed pieces. And this bird is special. I can see why you had to buy it. Perched there on the log. It’s wonderful Robin.

    Robin, this is wonderful! You did a fantastic job finding just the right beads to complement the Gaea bird. I had the bird in my cart, but took it out–I regret it, but the crossword sales are killing the pocketbook. I love the addition of the flower buds–you have matched all the colors perfectly. Sweet, happy bird makes me smile. :)
