It seems like I do all my best work on Tuesdays for some reason.
I was supposed to make some glass fish yesterday. I drifted onto making a goldfish, found myself intrigued by the fins and decided to have a go at layering strokes of glass to make wings. I made a full bead pendant before thinking that perhaps now was the perfect time to at last make those phoenix birds I dreamed of..?
So here they are. Two little fire birds, made with soft glass. I love the tint of it, it's only one colour but the flame changes the nuiances of it depending on how much heat it got.
It's just a plain bead with wings, tail and beak. And they probably won't last very long. Perhaps if I put them hanging in my window...
