I have always loved the work of Wayne Robbins and Judie Mountain's collaborations. Wayne does wonderful creatures of glass and Judie makes finished jewelry with his glass and her own bronze clay pieces.
This year at Bead and Button I treated myself to one of Wayne's bird rings. I of course could not resist adding a bit of a seed bead nest below the bird. Since the bird screws into it's ring base it is perfect for changing the nests as the mood strikes.
Here is the first one I made.
Well today I visited the San Diego Bead Society Bazaar and decided a second bird ring purchase was in order and a second nest of course!
These birds are so darn fun that I think I see a collection coming......
