Blue Birds

I showed earlier how I put a mirror in a bezel and covered it with a swinging lid. That reminded me of a medallion I created a while back with lovebirds on it.

I wanted to put some color into it, a bright blue that looks like bird's eggs.

It's glossy like enameled metal, but it's hand painted, not fused.

The bezel has an egg shape to it, rounded and oval, with the blue background and the sweet nesting birds on it.

I guess it's summertime, with bright blue skies and bird's eggs.

If this one has now found a home somewhere I'll make some more like it. I think it's very fun, I can see it with baby blue pearls in a strand, as a pretty necklace for a summertime party.

Thanks, friends. I'll have to figure out more ways to get some color with the pewter. I need to experiment with the enameled copper.

That's fun Lynn. I need to get busy and make up some of your beautiful pieces! Summer is almost here. Yikes. Take care, Riki

Riki, I always love seeing what you create, it makes me feel like the components "graduated" when you combine them so wonderfully and make wearable jewelry. And those are your little lovebirds, see? They have many, many lives, thank you for sharing them with me!
