I am a huge bird lover and the Chirp bird necklace series are loosely based on my watercolor birds, similar to these hand-painted bird notecards.
This bird bead was built on a base of white glass. The fancy tail and top notch is a two-purple twistie, melted in for a background effect. The lavender-pink body and purple twistie wing are were left raised.
I hand cut the copper tag, stamped it with the word ‘chirp’, antiqued it, and polished it to shine.
