A Wren, A Bag and Sunset

21 Jan

All the bird books came out this morning as all the artists at Fannie and Fox have been asked to consider making a Wren in their chosen medium for the next exhibition. Between us, Mr S and I came up with the design and so I cut, foiled and soldered. The came another challenge, how to incorporate some discarded jewellery as I do on every piece. I found a tiny black bead for the eye and the lovely Mr S suggested earring hooks for the feet. Here is my little wren which we are both delighted with. It is life size, about 9 cms.

We packed up D’s djembe yesterday and I missed the beautiful padded jacket that it has.

We went to see the sunset at the North Coast this evening but, while quite dramatic,  it wasn’t a patch on last night’s beauty.That’s Godrevy Lighthouse on the little island left of centre.

    The wren is delightful. So glad the lovely Mr. S takes part in your creative process. Love the djembe blanket.

      So pleased with my wren – success with curves at last. I have a new glass cutter which is much easier to use. 🙂

      Isn’t he? I am delighted with the funky little bird, not least because I have learned to cut curves! 🙂

    Talking about wrens, one came into my conservatory this morning and I had a right job getting it out! Sweet little birds and yours is very life-like. And your sunset photo is gorgeous 😊

      Gorgeous little birds aren’t they? WE get just one in our garden but I never manage a photo as it skitters about so much. 🙂

    What a lovely wren, and great idea with the ear hooks as feet! Super!

      I am delighted with how it worked – really chuffed! I’m glad you like it too. 🙂
