I began with a empty coconut shell....mosaic mirror tiles on the inside of the shell...
Puffer fish bones on the back of the coconut shell...and a bird appeared. I added a beak of apoxie sculpt, some shell prongs and abalone pieces for feathers and of course, rhinestones for flashes of light.
I wanted to make a sort of embryo piece within and so I sculpted her attached to another bone piece and created the beak on her head with a crown of bone.
She sits on a nest of metallic wire with attached beads.
