Moineau Doré

About this design:

The name means "Golden/Gilded Sparrow" in French. =^__^= Hand Patinated Vintaj Bird Connectors hold a trio of dangles beneath them. I used Vintaj Patinas in Moss, Jade, and Verdigris, followed with Vintaj Glaze mixed with PearlEx in Aztec Gold. The stones in this art nouveau inspired pair are Serpentine Rounds and Dark Green Kyanite Rectangles. ( The Kyanite has a shimmer I couldn't capture on camera, alas.)
