My collection of garden birs are hand-made with copper wire and set with semi-precious gemstone beads. Starting with the pretty Blue Tit, the rather adorable Robin Red Breast and the dainty Long Tailed Tit.
Not forgetting the rather majestic male Peacock bird.
These designs are inspired by a Blue Tit in flight and a Robin Red Breast perched on a snowy branch in winter time. As a designer I love exploring the 2D and 3D shapes that are possible with copper wire work. Using the wire to draw each bird, I have tried to capture their essence in a minimal style, looking at the key shapes that give each species their individual character.
