About this design:

I'd like to say there is hope for this year. At least in my little world. I've received both my shots and my two best friends will soon enough get theirs. So...that means we can hang out and drink coffee...I'm going to finally get my haircut. Maybe, we can do an arts and crafts thing at a indoor flea market. My friend Holly is an artist...Debbie is a photographer and I, of course, make jewelry. So...there is something to look forward to.

    You’ve got a great start to a beautiful bluesy collection for your first post pandemic craft fair! Love seeing buttons incorporated into jewelry.

    Here’s hoping this year you can have some normalcy again. It’s the little things we don’t even realize are so important to us. Love this bracelet. Blue is my favorite color and these little birds you incorporate into your pieces are so cute. I had a normal day today for the first time in months. It’s a beautiful day. I found an awesome bead sale. What more does anyone need?

    Lovely creations. Verlyn and I both got shot #1, and are scheduled for the second shot, so I have hope also! All adults will soon be vaccine eligible in Oregon, so seeing friends again looks not too far off! Hooray!

    Both are beautiful. I think that little bird is so adorable. I don’t work with blue much. For some reason I struggle with that color. I get my 2nd shot next week and can’t wait to go see my mom.

    Great work! I’m REALLY likin’ the blues! It’s a hard color for me to design with also. I have very few blue beads in my stash, but after seeing these I realize I need to start working with it more. I think all the different charms in both pieces add that ‘little extra special’ to your work adding further appeal. You must have a lot of those little birds! I only have one and have been saving him for, well, you know, that ‘just-right’ piece. At that rate, he’ll never get used & enjoyed! Love your work Jane! :)
