New Birds

I was shocked to learn that many people don't recognize the downward facing birds in my bird vessels. So I've been playing with some different, much simpler birds. Yesterday I borrowed the branch idea that Jennifer Geldard has been using in some of her "konstructs" and used it to accent one of these birds. The metallic greens and blues on the bird are hard to photograph. A hole runs horizontally through the branch at the top for a cord. I tried hanging one of my painted birdhouse beads in the middle, but it was just too big. I'm going to try some tiny birds to hang from the birdhouses though.
