Bird A Week #8 - Roadie

Bird A Week #9 - Owl Pendant

I was so excited to receive my bronze clay last week.  I got right to it and made up several mounting pieces for my painted glass.  I have learned a lot about the clay and have come out with some very appealing pieces.  Some of the construction didn't go as planned and the shrinkage was a hair more than I expected, but I am very happy with the results.

My bird this week is my Owl Totem Pendant.  He is done in a folk-artsy style and has an olive greenish background.  He is intended to bring knowledge and wisdom to you as you wear him close to your heart.

As well, I have finished an additional 10 other pieces with the bronze and glass.  I have them all listed on my Etsy site now available for sale.   Each one is made from an original reverse glass painting mounted on my handmade bronze clay.  Here are some preview pictures.

I actually have a dozen more glass pieces that need mountings, so more bronze work to come.  I love the warm tone that the bronze brings to the glass, it seems to work well with my images and themes. 

Hope you also enjoy them!
