Gosh - we are nearly half of the way through the year and therefore half way through our "bird a week" challenge, where a group of us challenged ourselves to make a different bird each week of 2011.
To me it has seemed that we were nearly half way there for quite a while!!!!
This week's birds are earrings using a design I first used last year in a "month of earrings" challenge. They were one of the first style of aluminum earrings I made. Little birdies taking a seat in the garden on different flowers.
Each earring depicts a different bird on his seat. The circles are gently domed too.
I love this rich red color. The dye calls it "burgundy". I don't think it's quite that yet....but it's definitely got the richness of wine!
If you'd like to take a look at what other birds have been created here, click on the links below. Unfortunately, linky tools hasn't been working very well lately and it's not been able to add all the links. If that is the case today, here is the flickr group.
