    Dawn, this looks gorgeous! I love that GGS clasp. And the beautiful blue Czech glass beads with which you paired it with are divine. :D

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank-you Donna and Bella! I tried to get a good picture of the beads and I turned on every light in the house but you can’t really see how pretty the beads are. The gray blue is very pretty and there is a hint of yellow inside the bead I wish I could get the Raven bead to show up better. Maybe I will play around and take it outside on a sunny day to get better detail in the pictures.

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank-you Lynn! I wanted something different! I felt I was in a bit of a rut! But I am breaking out of it. I was going to leave the Raven bead out. Do you think I should have?

    With the round bead on one side and the long square one on the other, you have nice balance here. This is perfect the way it is! :) (not that you asked me)

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    This is such a pretty necklace, Dawn! I love the montana blue and pairing that color with birds is very appropriate! From the photos, it looks like the blue is actually graduated. Is it? Either way, it’s lovely! :D
