Greetings from Portland OR

My muse this month was a song called "Bird on a wire" by Joe Bonamassa. Took a silver annealed piece that I pulled through a mill press with lace to give texture to the metal. Put bird template on with rubber cement to hold in place and then used my jewelry saw to cut birdie shapes.

Painted with water colors on stiff paper to create a morning sunrise background for my birds; cut to fit square back & sides. Worked copper wire to make the setting for birds to perch on. This piece pops in place and somewhat hovers above the space.

Took a tiny Phillips screw driver and filed the top off. Used this tool to stamp design on birds and finished with colored pencils to give individuality. Tiny holes help secure birds on wire.

Think of me singing early, in the morning light!
