Here Comes The Sun…and a Bird…and a Heart


The other day I took a break from making the bobble totems with bodies. I wanted to make something a bit smaller that was quicker to put together. I am planning to add the bobble totems to my line of work and having a range of price points is always a good thing. The “tiny totems” would fit that mindset.

This idea for tiny totems first popped up in my head while making my hearts last month. I wanted to find out how one of those hearts would look & function as a totem.

The heart looked pretty good. Of course, while this idea was ruminating in my head, I had to think about other sculptural items that might look cute as totems.

How about a tiny bird?

Of course, what bird doesn’t enjoy a bit of sun?

And here is the tiny totem trio:

The heart is 4.25″ tall. The bird is 3.75″ tall (to his beak). And the sun is 4.75″ tall to his longest sunbeam.

Have an excellent weekend everyone!

  1. Oh! They are wonderful!

    • Thank you everyone for your kind words of encouragement. The tiny totems are fun to make and definitely have their own personalities. And I don’t think birds ever really go out of style.

      Jean, I’ll be in touch privately regarding a potential purchase. I appreciate your interest.

  2. Love the new items. Am interested in purchasing the bird for a friend’s brithday early next month. Will they be ready later this month? The bird so fits my friend. Thanks and keep creating what is in your heart.

  3. I am loving watching the evolution of the totems Amy. Simply delightful.
