Swallow Decoration

£30.00

This wire bird hanging decoration follows the beautiful contours of a swallow in flight with its’ distinctive blue black feathers, pale under-body and long tail streamers. The design is hand-made with copper wire work, adorned with agate and Czech glass beads. Swallows are associated with the arrival of summer in the UK as they migrate back when the weather starts to warm, and are a familiar sight as they sweep through the sky in arcs searching for flies. They are seen as auspicious if they build a nest on your house.

Description

Variation: Each piece is hand-crafted individually and will vary slightly in appearance. When ordering you will receive a replica of the original design using the same colour palette. Slight differences in the design and beading will occur due to the hand-made nature of copper metalwork. The photographs in the gallery show a number of versions of the design on multiple backgrounds to give the most true to life image.

Beads: Agate and Czech glass.

Metal: Solid copper wire with a patina finish polished to reveal the warm coppery tones beneath. The copper has been sealed with a tough clear gloss finish to retain the glossy lustre highlights.

Hang: Metal flex wire – with a swivel barrel to allow the design to rotate 360 degrees with movement.

Approx Measurement Wing Tip to Wing Tip: 18cm / 7 inches.

N.B.: Please note I am a delicate little birdie, the copper is work-hardened, however if you sit on me or handle me roughly I will get squashed.
