Hey everybody, 

I made this brooch this spring using the lost wax casting method and blue wax.  The details are depletion gilded (although you can't really see it from the picture) and I set a cubic zirconia in the bird's breast.  The cz is gypsy or flush set, this is one of the easiest settings for me... so that also makes it my favourite.

i love this. i've been watching the birds migrate back up here to montana and this piece is refreshing to see a different species other than a swallow or something.

Very beautiful and one of kind craftmanship!

If you have any questions, I can try to answer them for you.  I prefer the burnisher method of gypsy setting.
