Blue and Yellow Bird Necklace with Glass Picture Pendant

About this design:

I've been away for a while because I was waiting for supplies to come in, but I'm back with something a little different. I'm trying my hand at glass photo/picture necklaces. This one's made with a retro style image of a yellow bird under a glass cabochon. The dangle at the bottom is made from bronzite and yellow jade.

    Love it! The bird is adorable but the brass and the bronzite makes sure it doesn’t go overboard into cutesy.
