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.

That's just amazing. Smiley I am really interested in silver clay. I'm hoping to get into it eventually.

So pretty and delicate. It's really beautiful! It must be fiddly to work so tiny!
