These two flowery characters belong together. They even have some parts of the same antique upcyled cream flowered necklace linking them across time and space. Theirs is a story of gentle love and these two lovebirds journey on together spreading their message of love and freedom to you. Who would have the heart to separate them? Not me! so they are sold together.


These exquisite, jewelled bird sculptures were 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 these birds, as Jane first sculpted an under structure using 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- vibrant, colourful, and joyful. This pair of Love Birds are ready to wing their way out into the world. They are completely unique artworks and were exhibited in an installation called "Free as a Bird".
