>Beaded Rufous Hummingbird

Right now, I have two small projects on my work table. After painting a small canvas for one piece, I began beading this tiny Rufous Hummingbird:

Bead embroidery on felt. “1.5 x “1.25 wide. Work in progress.

This little bird is similar to the Ruby Throated Hummingbird pin in my Etsy shop. I used 7 different colours of size 15 Japanese seed beads and copper wire was used for the beak and claw. Like my Tufted Titmouse, this will become part of a small beaded painting! Now, back to that canvas I was working on… 🙂
