I'm getting a bit obsessed with making these birdhouse necklaces and I made this one for my sister for Christmas.
It's .999 silver, precious metal clay. I cut a base shape and then ornamented it with various stamps, sculpted images and piped slip.
It was dried to leather hard and fired in a kiln at 1200 degrees. I forgot to measure it before I gave it to her, but I think it's about 1 1/2 inches long.
