My necklace features two birds that I made with leftover resin.
Most of the time, when I made a batch of resin, I have a very good idea how much I will need. Occasionally I do make a little extra and on my table I have molds and other containers I can pour this "left over" resin in to. This little bird mold is one that I use a lot.
My cured resin birds always looks so pretty when they are clear and transparent, but they are hard to see. I decided to glue my birds to some Japanese paper.
Here are three birds after I cut away the excess paper. Now they look wonderful! I drilled two tiny holes into the winds and attached them to a metal tree branch.
This really is "birds on a wire."
They are now the focal point of a new necklace.
