About this design:

I fell in love with this sweet ceramic Dove. I didn't like the plain metal hanger, so I wrapped it and added a few swirls... to match His swirls!
Lots of mushroom buttons: shiny and matte multi-colored Celsian plus shiny and matte crystal Celsian. I love love love the mix of colors and texture.


Ceramic Dove pendant. Glass mushroom button beads. Vintaj Pinapple beads=LB. Vintaj peanut cable chain=LB.

    Love this bird, looked at the beads too, but I have quite a collection of Unicorne teardrops so I passed them, I like that you mixed different finishes :D

    Love the bubbly, light feel of this, as though the bird could truly fly away. Good one!

    Another great find to inspire a set, Julie ! The dove is so much better with the swirled connectors, and I love what you have done with the mix of bead colors and finishes to showcase the dove.
