My bird house

I have always wanted to make a bird house and never got round to do one so two days ago I made my little bird house, which I am very pleased with.
The photos aren't great but the first is with a patina and Keith moaned that I patina everything, so I added a chain which removed the patina.

So my question is which way should I have it patina or NO patina????

Is keith right or am I ????

I have been making big but on the cheap

These are three large pieces of jewellery I have been working on.

Made with cooper clay and silver clay.

The first is my Tiki Masked Man.
Then as requested by a customer a large shell ( I haven't made shells for such a long time ) with a silver star fish and pearl.

The last is an experiment.
This is a large flower in copper clay with a silver clay centre. I then added colour.
I love the different effects you can get with just adding a pearl or some colour and silver.

FAM 2012 MAY

Here are my 4 projects for FAM the four a month challenge.
I have been playing with glass again and made five projects this time.

 These are up-cycled keys from our key bar, when the staff cut them in correctly they are put to one side for re-cycling, so I thought I would use some in my jewellery and made lamp work beads to make an interesting key chain necklaces. I love em ;-D

This is mine to keep ;-) The rest are for sale and are on display
in my studio for our local Chichester art trail starting
this Saturday. I hope some of you can make it.
