The Quarantine Birds

I love little birds as a theme for my work – beads, drawing, sculpture… whatever form. Before the outbreak I already had a fair assortment of bird themed beads in my shop but I guess other folks decided now was the time to see what they wanted, as far as bird beads go.

As far as themes for the outbreak go little, mostly cute, birds is a pretty mild one I think. Anyone else got a recurring visual element in their pandemic art practice?



Every now and then I get customer requests that are just a little out of my ordinary. These were some of the first tries for the latest one. They’re sweet but they’re very large beads so I have smaller birds in the baking tray. I’m not worried though, these guys will make adorable focal beads for my upcoming shows or ornaments in the fall!

And: Happy Mother’s Day to all the women involved in mom-ming folks!
