Watercolor Birds – A Family Affair

This is a custom listing for a family of birds. ❤️

I created these birds as a glass representation of my watercolor birds. The base panel glass is a rainbow iridescent — the colors vary with each piece. The bird bodies were constructed out of sheet glass and the feathers and wings were created using my torch to create the wild tails and wings. The legs/feet are also hand-pulled glass.

Each piece is 3.5×5.5″ (glass) plus a handmade copper hanger, which adds 2.25 – 2.5″ to the total height. Copper wire has been upcycled from electrical wire.

US Shipping is included. Thank you!

Amazing birds – photos and behaviors

Trees and Birds Project

Hiking in the forest is my cure to de-stress. The trees and birds top my list of reasons why I find nature so restorative. I am deeply inspired by nature, and my glass and watercolor art reflect that inspiration. For 2020, I am spotlighting trees and birds and finding ways to give back.

Chirp - Purple Bird by Janet Crosby

Chirp – Purple Bird Necklace

I am a huge bird lover and the Chirp bird necklace series are loosely based on my watercolor birds, similar to these hand-painted bird notecards.

This bird bead was built on a base of white glass. The fancy tail and top notch is a two-purple twistie, melted in for a background effect. The lavender-pink body and purple twistie wing are were left raised.

I hand cut the copper tag, stamped it with the word ‘chirp’, antiqued it, and polished it to shine.

Necklace Chain Choices

The pictured chain is the 20″ sterling silver large cable chain. If you would prefer a different chain, please contact me to arrange.

Watercolor Bird – Curly Top

I created these birds as a glass representation of my watercolor birds, an example is shown in the last photo. It was fun trying to show the fluidity of watercolor in glass. Each bird is definitely one-of-a-kind, just like their watery counterparts.

The base panel glass is a nice semi-translucent glass called Robin’s Egg Blue. The bird body was constructed out of streaky blue sheet glass and the feathers and wings were created using my propane-oxygen torch pulling different blue glass. The legs/feet are also hand-pulled glass.

This piece is 3.5×5″ (glass) plus a handmade copper hanger, which brings the total height to 8″. The copper wire hanger has been upcycled from electrical wire.
