This is Eric's April challenge and I loved it. I always remember watching the Chickadees when I was young and asking my mom why they didn't fly to Florida, maybe they couldn't and should I feel sorry for them? My mom reassured me that no tall birds in Michigan fly to Florida and that Chickadees were perfectly fine here in the winter.
I always remember them because of their little black head, why??? I don't know but I did.
I especially like this photo because of the variance of color, although neutrals, that are brought out.
Taupe and grey and the warm tan with the coral I was a happy bead making camper! I even woke up with polymer clay stuck to my big toe!
I made the focal and the orangey-coraly beads towards the top. The beads by the focal are recycled.
I had to make a bird bead, which I did from poly clay, also the coral beads. The matte taupe beads came from The Spacer Bead Queen and the stripy beads came from Beth Singleton. I have been waiting for the perfect thing to use these in. The small pink rounds are shell.
