This is part of a special collection made from a tin I didn’t particularly like. So I sanded off much of the design and then drew some doodles in permanent ink.
These little birds came out of my first 30 Day Challenge a while back and they've proven to be very popular.
This particular pair is from a contemporary Oreo cookie tin.
The little birds are hand-cut, filed, finished smooth and formed slightly to add interest and rigidity. The birds are 1.5" (37mm) tall and are attached with a tube rivet to swoopy ear wires that make them hang about 2.5" (67mm) from the ear. The wire is designed to catch on a little bend made in the tail. This creates tension in the wire and keeps the little birds from flying off.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
I’ve recently partnered with the non-profit One Tree Planted. $1 from your order today will plant a tree somewhere on the globe.
