This little bird heralds the essence of new beginnings. With fresh spring like green and yellow colours- this bird reminds us that there are cycles to everything and that we can begin again at any moment of our lives. Just as things have lain dormont beneath the soil during winter, perhaps nowi s the time to let something out of yourself- a new time of creativity is beginning no matter what the season!


This exquisite, jewelled bird sculpture was created by Athena Jane using vintage and modern glass and acrylic beads, gems and glass crystals, including recycled and upcycled jewellery from the artist's collection along with handmade Florentine paper and gold metal leaf. Layers of work went into making this tiny bird, as Jane first sculpted an under structure using Epoxy resin and wire and then gradually added layers of handmade papers, glazes and paint to create an aged feel to the work. Gemstones, beads, upcycled jewellery and tiny glass crystals are hand-picked for each bird and applied painstakingly over many hours. Finally Gold metal leaf is added, clinging to traces and painted over for a detailed weathered effect.


Athena Jane began her collection of birds inspired by the opulence of Venice and the traces of history and rich colours she discovered as she walked among the canals and beauty of the city. During Lockdown 2020 Jane continued to create- as the world entered a period of restriction, she made hundreds of sparkling birds, the absolute symbol of freedom- sparkling and joyful. This completely unique artwork is ready to start a new life with you.
