I’ve been busy making tiny silver owl and bird ornaments.
Following on from the success of the tiny micro hedgehogs, I thought I would branch out….
Each owl and bird is individually hand sculpted in silver clay with inset gemstone eyes. They fire to solid silver. I love the fact that each one is completely unique and no two will ever be quite the same – making them a very personal gift. Each has its own unique personality and I can use a wide range of different gems for the eyes.
They are so tiny that I have to make them under a magnifying lens, using a set of tiny sculpting tools. It requires a lot of patience and sadly many birds don’t make it to the final stage….
Here’s the first one I made, fired to silver. Sorry, he’s sold already but please get in touch if you’d like to get your hands on a micro owl or micro bird.
This series follows on from my best selling hand sculpted silver hedgehogs. I am still making the hedgehogs to order.
All my handmade silver jewellery is inspired by nature and wildlife. I’ve been lucky enough to have a close encounter with an owl that fell down my chimney and had to be rescued many moons ago. The tiny bird is inspired by my many garden visitors.
I do hope you like the new designs and you can shop my jewellery at www.littlesilverhedgehog.etsy.com
