Birdie's Bathtime at Birdland

When I wrote my post "Bathtime at Birdland" last month, I knew there would be a follow up! Taking those photos of all the birds in our birdbath made me want to create a birdbath piece of my own.


I decided to try another version of a ring with a birdbath on top. Instead of forming a rectangular band like I did on my duck in a box ring, I used thick silver wire for the band and put the bird bath on top.


It was different for me to make a bird with his wings outstretched - but then I love to see them do that in the bath! Get that water under the wings! The water is created using resin which I colored.


What a happy little bird in his bath! What do you think? He's not for sale. He's a tester to see how the ring holds up. Obviously it isn't an every day ring that you would wear when you do the gardening etc - more a "cocktail ring" as they are now called. I do like that phrase! So I will be wearing him for a few cocktail hours and more and see how the band part holds up. It is my plan to try a few different band styles and see which looks good but also functions well. Rings take quite a bit of abuse - even if only during cocktail hour!!! Cheers!
