I’ve been making these sweet little mosaic birds since around 2005.  They have evolved over time and no longer have pipe cleaner feet…after all, when you’re flying it’s more aerodynamic to have your feet tucked against your body, right?  I’ve recently started making the wings out of brass, copper or aluminum that I stamp with a special phrase and some are also adorned with a metal crown.  Check out my new Etsy shop, Amy Lou Fancher Mosaics to see what birds are available.

These gorgeous new steampunk inspired mosaic pieces are available for purchase.  Email me at fancher.amy@gmail.com for details.
