This whimsical birdie is peering into a teacup adorned with mosaic china pieces to read your fortune. Set against the backdrop of Arts & Crafts styled “wallpaper” this 11.75” x 11.75” artwork is a favorite by many of my social media followers.

Deep, rich colors, shading, freshwater pearls and repeating flower patterns give this artwork an opulent presence, creating a world in which this bird might conceivably exist.

Created with approximately 32,000 glass seed beads, I hand set each bead individually into a mixture of beeswax and pine resin. Accents include Feshwater pearls, vintage jewelry, rhinestone and ball chain. Beads and accents are sealed for durability and sheen. This artwork is wired for wall hanging, unframed with painted black edges.
