This wonderful beaded bird took 1st place and Runner up for best in show at the Bead & Button Bead Dreams competition 2012. I jut got her back form the show and she is ready to fly into your arms. This piece has been something I have been wanting to do for many years, and I finally figured out how to go about making it this year. Each feather is individually beaded and took about two hours to make there are 29 of them. The piece has a 17 inch wing span, the body from beak to tail tip is 10 inches. She is about the size of a large blue Jay. I had a special base made for her which is not pictured if your interested let me know and I can post a picture for you. Thank you for taking the time to check Free Bird out I hope it brings you as much happiness as it has me to have made her.
