Copper Clay Bat Necklace for Halloween!

Just for a change from pottery shards, I made this copper clay bat necklace today. I designed the mould myself - the mould has the basic shape but the fine details are added to each bat individually, making each one unique. I love his slightly forlorn expression, and doing the fur is fun!

He is inspired by an ironwork bat that I saw in the Victoria & Albert Museum a few months ago.
