    Gorgeous use of colour – the mystic feldspath goes so beautifully with the turquoise and peridot and … the iron! I have been in the mission at Capistrano (no swallows at the time) and it is quiet and serene and a place out of time. Into my faves immediately.

    And not to forget the darling Kylie Perry bird! Perfection, my friend.

    Fabulous pick! It seems to tell the story very well! I’m a big fan of the Mystic Blue Feldspath! Which reminds me I need to make something with it, instead of hoarding it. :)
