Christmas Present for Mom by f0xyme Christmas Present for Mom by f0xyme
I'm super low on money this year, so I made a couple presents for my family.

I made this for my mom. It originally started as a pendant for a necklace but it's kind of too big (at least for her style: at about 3"x3") so I'm gonna make it a brooch that she can wear when she dresses fancy lol. It's a bird called a Hoopoe ([link]) that lives in Africa and my mom is from there so you know, it suits her.

at some point I might make more of these similar to this with a different variety of birds or animals maybe? I dunno, if you guys like it enough then maybe.

made with: a couple pendants I had, sculpy, copper wire, clock gears, pearls, jewels, and acrylic paint.

anyway enjoy!

This is very lovely. I'm sure your mother will be happy to have it. After all, handmade gifts tend to leave a longer impression than store items.
