Bye Bye Birdie.


In recent weeks we have been lucky enough to get to know a lovely young woman from France. She is funny and sweet and we love her accent. She is also drop-dead gorgeous and has that innate elegance that Frenchwomen appear to be born with. It will be her birthday next week and we are all going out ot celebrate on the week-end. I wanted to make her something a bit special - something she could keep and think of her time here in Australia and with our family. I had a few false starts today - nothing would go right for me. Then in the late afternoon I took a deep breathe, whacked Angus and Julia on the Ipod and I was off. This is what I came up with in the end ...

I have cut the wee birdy from brass and his wing from epns. His pod/nest is made from recycled pewter. Wires etc are sterling silver. I ummed and ahhhed about the little freshwater pearl but in the end its egg shape won me over and I had to include them. I have packed them up in a handmade box and I hope she will like wearing them as much as I have enjoyed making them.
