Birdies commission

I have just completed a commission for several little bird pins as small gifts for The Diamond Choir in South Africa. I was fortunate enough to see the choir perform at Huntingdon Hall last summer & they were fantastic! An inspirational group of South African mineworkers with their show of uplifting vocal harmonies.
The choir members all met in the Cullinan Mine and decided to raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS in their communities by touring.

These little birds are a gift from Jane Cox who met the choir in South Africa & helped to set up the tour last year. I hope the choir will be pleased with them. I think I may make a few more as I'm definitely going through a bird phase at the moment!
