Riveted pendants

Sterling silver, pierced, drilled and riveted onto copper.
These were a pleasure to make. I started piercing the little shapes out thinking I would make a ring out of the piece, but when I finished the two small 'pictures' I decided that they needed a background. I sawed them off the piece, and filed and sanded them smooth, then riveted them to copper.
They are a bit sloppy, I made the 'droopy bud' first and it shows. The 'bird' looks so much better.
