If you've been reading my blog long enough, you know how I feel about birds. And, of course, you know how I feel about jewellers. Can you please tell me, then, how I'm supposed to feel about a jeweller who's in cahoots with a bird? Does not compute. In her "Collaboration with a Bird" series, Wisconsin artist Teresa F. Faris explores the "ideas of fragility and human/animal connectedness" by working "with animals rather than using their bodies." Each piece features a piece of wood that has been chewed or "carved" by a bird. They're making jewellery now, folks. Be afraid.

Here's another collaboration, of sorts, with a bird: caged quail egg ring by Rhode Island's Nikki Thiess-Kusiak.
