About this design:

Once again, a nesting theme. I patina'd a Vintaj Natural Brass bird and brass filigree leaf. Stacked the bird and the nest for the focal. I think I need to put a bit darker bronze on the leaf to make it pop more, but I like the necklace overall. Hoping to sell it this weekend at a craft show!


Vintaj Natural Brass sparrow, Earthenwood Studio nest pendant, Czech glass discs, wooden ovals, brass corrigated rounds, natural brass ladder chain, craft wire, natural brass lobster clasp.
