The Bird is Back

About this design:

This is what I had originally planned for the bird...dangling from a log. The other necklace I had a hard time telling if it was a pastel pink or orange...but I chose pink.


Gaea bird, bold Agates, Czech glass leaves and flowers, ceramic beads, white spacers, brass chain, ceramic pendant, Matte Yellow Opals, African pink beads, sari silk, copper chain and waxed linen...and brass log...most all from LB.

    Wonderful necklaces. Love the tubular beads with the birdie – so colorful. And the little leaves and flowers. You always have so many wonderful shapes and colors.

    Jane, I just love the yellow & pink in your second necklace. You did a great job pulling out the colors in the pendant. It is so appropriate for springtime & the new blooms ahead.

    Another sweet bird from Sweetjane. And he has a branch to perch on. Lots of great colors in this one too. Very nice.

    Thanks for all your comments…but…I have to do this one over. The bird doesn’t stay centered on the log. That’d o.k. because it just gives me other options…what to do with the bird and the bold Agates I love so much.

    I really love the Leaf and Yellow design except for the ribbon. I have never really been into ribbon. But I do love copper. This actually has more yellow in it than the Daffodil Necklace. Probably better than the Daffodil for my new granddaughter to be. I’m waiting to hear back from Joel about Natalie’s favorite colors.

    Nancy…the ribbon is expendable.

    That little bird sure gets around. So cute it looks great with everything. The bold agates are so fun. I especially like the pink and yellow necklace. You don’t see that color combo much.
