Marcia's latest Wayne bird ring

Here is the latest ring Marcia DeCoster made with one of Wayne's glass bird beads. She has designed these rings so that the bird can be interchangeable.

Here is a post from Marcia DeCoster's blog:

I have always loved the work of Wayne Robbins and Judie Mountain's collaborations.  Wayne does
wonderful creatures of glass and Judie makes finished jewelry with his glass and her own bronze clay pieces.

This year at Bead and Button I treated myself to one of Wayne's bird rings.  I of course could not resist adding a bit of a seed bead nest below the bird.  Since the bird screws into it's ring base it is perfect for changing the nests as the mood strikes.

Here is the first one I made.
