    Perfect! I like the “consistency” of one side with the “variety” of the other side of your necklace. The little bird is adorable.

    This is lovely! The blues remind me of china my great great grandmother had for “special occasions” when I was a child. Very vintage looking. As always, your designs are astounding! =^___^=

    Thank you all! Glad you like this little blue bird of happiness. Asymmetry in design doesn’t come easy to me, but I’m learning about balancing weight, color, and space.
