The Joy of Metal Clay: Happy Easter

Photo from Delphi Glass - Free Fine Silver Egg-creations (link below)

Well, it is Easter Sunday. Which lead me to search out Easter themed metal clay items...
The first item I found was a free downloadable tutorial from Delphi Glass pictured above. The instructions can be found at http://www.delphiglass.com/free-patterns-guides/metal-clay-guides/free-fine-silver-egg-cessories-project-guide
Second, I found that Metal Clay Supply has a cute Easter chick and egg template from QuickArt(http://www.metalclaysupply.com/QuikArt-Templa

It is Easter Sunday. Happy day. I decided to search out what type of Easter themed metal clay items there may be out there. I quickly got sidetracked into spring like things.

I quickly got side tracked into looking at Birds which lead me to Joy Funnels blog and her "Bird a week" project. I had heard about this endeavour but had not found the time to take a look. Personally, as a child I told people I wanted to be an ornithologist, partially because I took pride and saying the word and knowing what it meant but also I do love birds. (in fact I have a great piece I made last week that I will share with you next week.) Anyway enough about me. Here Joy's final piece in the series. A Dodo. Isn't he awesome. You can find her other birds posted on her blog: http://joyfunnell.blogspot.ca/2011/12/bird-week-5252-dead-as-dodo.html. Enjoy.
