Just When You Thought You'd Seen Enough...More Orange

About this design:

I got this little pendant at a bead store...don't know even what the stone is. I thought it would be more interesting if I made the disc I did. The bracelet is the other bluebird.

    Both are lovely. I’m feeling very orangey. I am coveting that orange pendant! Maybe someone on staff knows what it is? Ahh… the beads in someone else’s stash. Very much like that greener grass on the other side of the fence. Love how you used it!

    Wow, what a great necklace. It looks like there’s also a Healy copper bail. I’m always intrigued by how you stich the beads sometimes and all so perfectly. And of course the blue bird bracelet is very sweet. The creator of the blue birds and blue bird pendant is Jess Counts. She used to have a shop on Etsy. I looked for it but its now somewhere else on the Internet.

    Beautiful sweetjane. The orange necklace is so pretty -love the way you sewed through the beads. It’s perfect for fall.
    And the bluebird – wonderful – the little white flowers look like clouds drifting through the sky. Lovely.

    That orange necklace is a stand out piece! It could be a statement in any season of the year. Beautiful stone focal even if it’s unknown.

    Where’s the partridge? :)

    Great color in both pieces. The orange one is a definite attention grabber! Love the color and the design! By contrast the blue one is so serene… It has great color and design, too.

    Great monochromatic pieces. The neclace is just wonderful. I could never get enough of your orange beauties. And what a sweet bluebird. You used such a lovely variety of blue shades.

    We can never have too much Orange! Love this!! What a great idea weaving the waxed linen thru the discs–such a wonderful effect. Your second bluebird bracelet is sweet, and I like how this time he’s paired with the Amazonite flowers. Love your work Jane!
