Birds in the Cherry Tree

About this design:

Never discard a work in progress! I had made one earring with a bird, which I really didn't like, but I kept it around anyway, because the design was interesting...well, I finally decided to try it again, and here's the result!


copper wire, MOP fetish birds, glass leaves and berries
