This mobile took many, many days to create. I started with the bluebirds, the stars of this creation. They were each sculpted by hand from polymer clay, making each one special and one of a kind. The birds were painted, aged, and sealed with non toxic sealer for protection. The wooden spool beads were decoupaged with inspirational text:
The spools were also stained and sealed.
The rainbow beads are beautifully bright and earthy at the same time. They are strung with sparkly brown beads that catch the light in a subtle fashion. The birds cascade from high to low, showing various positions of flight. The red strand of beads carries the smallest bluebird. Because his spool reads 'love', I have added a small gold heart to his strand.
The center of the mobile features an antique brass heart locket on a strand of buttons, wooden barrel beads, and brown sparkle beads. The locket is perfect for storing a small message, photographs, or maybe even a secret.
The birds are secured to an embroidery hoop that I covered with torn strips of linen. The hoop is approximately 5 1/4 inches in diameter. I used natural jute twine to create the hanger and adorned it with a button and a hand-stitched linen yo yo. The entire piece is about 16 inches from top to bottom.
This one of a kind piece would make a lovely addition to any room. Hang it above a window, over a dining table, above a bed... the possibilities are endless!
