I have great fondness for garden and woodland birds, and have brought to life their beautiful feathers with copper wire art and semi-precious gemstones. My first three designs feature the magical magpie, the majestic brown owl and the colourful green woodpecker. These birds are all familiar sights across Great Britain and three of my favourites! I have also added the beautiful white swan and the jay bird to my growing feather collection. You can view over the making of my brown owl feather here, which includes a time-lapse video of the wire-work and bead wrapping along with a selection of my work in progress photographs.
They are available as single hanging decorations, whether to cheer up your walls, hang in the window or garden, at approximately 8 inches tall they make for a bold statement piece. In ancient folk lore, each bird has mystical associations which are noted in the product descriptions. Each feather has a magical quality distinctive to the species.
Three of my British bird feathers also feature in one rather grand hanging mobile. The beautiful peacock is the centre piece for another feathery hanging mobile. In these designs, the top bar is a piece of fallen wood that has been stripped of its’ bark, sanded and waxed for a natural feel. Each of my mobiles has swivel barrels that allow the feature pieces to rotate fully around 360 degrees with gentle movement. My hanging mobile’s prefer to spend their time indoors due to the delicate nature of the hanging droplets, but I hope you agree they would make a stunning addition to your home
Along side my collection of feather inspired decorations, I also celebrate all things feathery with my range of British garden and woodland birds…
Onto a few of my rather grand bird designs. The first is my blue tit in flight suncatcher, a labour of love! My wintry robin suncatcher sits on a snowy branch. My barn owl decoration is a rather majestic design with gorgeous rose quartz and agate beads. And finally my birds on a wire suncatcher with Czech class beads. A pretty trio of garden birds captured in copper wire work.
