big chickadee

it's big - about 1 1/4" from tail feathers to beak tip.

i started with a simple round dark gray glass core rolled in dark ivory frit then encased with pale gray transparent. then i spot heated and pulled the tail with my tweezers and then ploped on the head and beak.

sigh - every loose bead, necklace, brooch, bauble and booger is tagged, photographed, inventoried and delivered to more fire glass for the big holiday show that opens on friday.
