A Bird's Journey

A couple of nights ago, I got the crazy idea of sculpting a tiny bird with silver metal clay.
My first intention was to make some earrings with the tiny bird, so I made more than one.
It was a challenge because of the size but I managed to made them and I liked them.

My tiny sculpted metal clay bird.

After finishing more details with my bird, 
I was not sure anymore about making earrings with them. 
They were still too tiny and after firing them and the shrinkage, 
they will be smaller.

I found the best new home for my little bird !
I made a ring with it and I was very pleased with the outcome.

 This is my new ring design with my tiny bird and some flowers around it.

    I thought of you when I saw the Mexican folk art heart with birds on Geninne's site here:
