La Petit Oiseau

About this design:

The little's similar to the one I once made for one of my doctor's wife Barbara. I just got the news tonight...he had passed away. It's very, very sad...he was a special man. Anyway... who said life was one.

    Stunning! I love seeing your work because no two are alike and the asymmetry in beads, findings, and color. They are a breath of fresh air! This o e is no exception.

    Just another one of your bright and joyful pieces of jewelry with a unique design and outstanding color. The silver bird adds a “charming” design element to a great piece of summer jewelry.

    The bird is a symbol of the spirit, which flies free.

    So sorry to hear about your loss. Life hurts sometimes. But I agree with Melody F. You bring joy by sharing your wonderful work with us. This necklace is especially beautiful. I love the bird with the bright colors and chain. My eye wants to go to the lacey flower. It’s a special touch.

    Thanks to all for your comments! The little bracelet I made with the gold letters JOY…I want to give to Barbara. The service is tomorrow. I know she’s not feeling much joy right now… but I know she will again. I hope that’s appropriate.
