Exclamation Is cutie metal poisoned ?

Hello,
so I was making a metal necklace when cutie was playing she showed great interest in what I was doing so I allowed her to play with it but as soon as she put the thing in her mouth she shook 2 times I thought she was scared so I allowed her to put it in her mouth again but then she shook again 2 times so I am scared is she metal poisoned now I mean maybe she will show reaction later on. I don't know what to do is there something I can give to her immediately cutie is playing fine now but I hope she hasn't ingested something harmful. Is there something I can do immediately. Please help I am really scared I don't know what metal type the necklace was of , any signs in cutie I need to be looking out for.

Sound's like she didn't have it in her mouth very long. Most dangerous with metal is the degraded as in rusting or flaking. I assume since you are makin a necklace the metal is not rusty or flaking. There is a lot of info available on this subject, especially as it relates to bird toy's and mesh used in aviary's. I am sure your bird is not metal poisoned but do some research and keep an eye on cutie, and exercise caution in the future with metal, knowing what your allowing her to have...

You should never allow Cutie to play with any metal when you don't know what type of metal it is.

Chances that she's got heavy metal poisoning from those two encounters today are slim.
Please ensure you are much more careful in the future.

You've been given great advice above, in addition, next time you are concerned about your birds health or feel that you are in an emergency situation, call an avian vet rather than relying on people on the internet. While there are very knowledgable people on here, we cannot give you a proper diagnosis if something is wrong with your bird, and we can't always reply straight away. Birds are great at hiding their symptoms, so once symptoms show, it is important to contact an avian vet as soon as possible, instead of waiting around for someone to reply on a forum.
