A unique gift for a special person (or vice versa)
Animal general, and every single person gets a big, special gift. Since she helps saving and treating wild birds, I decided to go with this theme. I first saved a tiny bone from the toe of a pigeon that had surgery. It sounds a little creepy, but I thought it was interesting, and nobody else would have this idea. So I found enough information in different web sites, on how to clean and dry bones. It was a very delicate piece, because it was a small bone attached to the nail. I cleaned as much as possible, then it soaked in hydrogen peroxide for 1 week. After that, I went to Michaels and found an embellishment for a necklace. I painted the bottom with black nail polish, to give contrast.Easy Cast cast (also from Michaels). It takes about 3 days to dry, so the whole process took a couple of weeks. And that is called a unique gift.
