What next.......

Check this spot out for the rest of the Bird Brooches which are PEACOCK and DOVE.

After this series I will create a few more animals series. I still have not decided on the next series yet but highly likely it would be PET Brooches.........

Bird Brooches Series - 4 of 6 - SWAN

Always wanted to do a swan but restricted on a lots of ideas of swan already created. I wanted something that is uniquely me. So here it is.

Bird Brooches Series - 3 of 6 - FLAMINGO

The third of the Bird Brooches Series. This one was made with 14mm Rose Rivoli while the body was made using mostly half hard silverwire (quite unforgiving on manipulation mistake).

Bird Brooches Series - 2 of 6 - ROBIN

This is the second of this series. It is made with 18mm Volcano Rivoli.

Bird Brooches Series - 1 of 6 - OWL

This idea just came to me, more like an urge of doing an owl. I was experimenting with 12mm Rivoli buttons for the eyes at first but they were not stable enough nor strong enough to withstand wire manipulation. So I had to come back to the normal rivoli. After this made I decided on making a series of brooches base on animals. First stop Bird Brooches Series.

It is made with 2 x 12mm rivoli in a oxidised silver wire setting.
