Work in progress and a nest

I have been trying something new. Sari fabric in resin. I am loving the glowing colours, which are even more intense in the resin.
Butterfly


I don't really believe I have to introduce the talented lady to you, that made this little bird. But in case somebody new stumbles across my blog, I will anyway. It is, of course, LeAnn of Summers Studio. She is a master of clay, constantly coming up with beautiful designs. Her birds are so sweet.

I have turned this little bluebird of happiness into a pendant, using sterling silver wire, aquamarine and peridot beads. Now I need to finish the necklace part.



LeAnn also sent me some of her lovely little eggs. I am totally in love with these. Don't they look cute in that nest??

Thank you so much, LeAnn. Your work is so lovely and inspiring and you are a true friend!

gorgeous renate! i have been playing with fiber in resin too - it certainly soaks it right up... it seems that you have treated it almost as paper on the back - i love the effect that you created... and i too have a very soft spot for those birds...

Your resin butterfly is very beautiful. I also adore the tiny blue bird focal piece. Happy creating...

Renate, you make me happy! The birdie pendant is lovely with the spiral above and the gems below. So sweet. I think I need to get a nest and add some eggs to it. I love that. But far and above is what you've done with the sari fabric. That is a beautiful piece. I really like how the resin has made the fabric so intense. Hugs, LeAnn

Your butterfly is beautiful! I've got ICE resin here at home but haven't carved out any time to sit down and try it out.

I love LeAnn's creations! Just ordered some of her new clasps yesterday.
