nuthatches & chickadees band

Hand carved Songbirds Band in white gold with diamonds

Birds! On a ring! These are very specific birds too: chickadees and nuthatches carved in gold, with a few diamonds sprinkled about. I love how it turned out; it was a really fun one to carve.

You might think that little tweety birds are all alike, but the two are really quite different in overall shape & the way they perch. The one above is the chickadee.

Here’s the Nuthatch: then tend to have more elongated heads & longer pointier beaks. They also like to hang out upside-down with their head sticking out. This pose made it easier for me to recreate its likeness here.
