Birds and rings

I have finished two more Bird rings for both the Bird a week and the Ring a week challenges.  These are created using Faux Bone, a lovely material to use and to wear.  I was intending to tint the one above but after leaving it for a few days realised that I like the clarity of form so have left it un-coloured.
This 3rd one is also in Faux Bone with art clay silver flower bud and bird attached.  The flower bud also has a small orange cz set into the top of it.  The faux bone is stained using alcohol inks.  I may have to take these pictures again as I was struggling with the light and seem to have given them an odd colour cast.

Love them, Lynne! I've been tempted to try my carved bird ring in faux bone. You convince me I should give it a try.
