"Bluebird" Necklace & Bracelet Set


About this design:

This necklace features a beautiful blue house bezel from Cindy Kovar at Captured Moments that I collaged with a piece of an antique book and an aged bird charm, sealed and filled with ICE resin.

The chain is made with wire-wrapped links of honey jade, rainbow new jade, copper and glass beads. Little pops of colors are from seed beads in complimentary colors.

Components:

Ceramic house bezel, antique book paper, bird charm, LimaStudios Crystal Clear Resin, Honey Jade, seed beads, copper wire, rainbow jade

    Quite an interesting design! So many lovely elements but it flows. The pendant is wonderful, the wire wrapped beads are perfect, as is the color palet. Bring on Spring!

    I wouldn’t know were to begin in making a wonderful pendant like this–your efforts paid off as it is beautiful. The wire wrapping over the beads create a special element within the piece. Nice job! (Love that little bird too!)

    Lovely, your wirework has a very polished look. I like how you incorporated both messy links and formal neat links in the same piece. And I don’t normally like yellow so much, but here I like it a lot. Very lovely piece.

    I love that this piece seems heavy with the wire work and light with the bead choice. Wear with pride.

    AWESOME! Love the blues and yellows together. Your wire work is perfect! I like the mix of tiny tight wraps on some beads but loose “sloppy” wraps on others. Great contrast! and btw: I am SO going to “borrow” your idea! ;)

    I love those honey jade (not really yellow) beads. They’re a soft orange, more than yellow – AT LEAST on my computer. From what I hear different comps. have different colors. And I LOVE the bracelet. Just love it. I’m not sure about the pendant with this one, but you did a great job on it. Since I’m not ‘sure’ just let it be …………
