    I believe you have a factory with elves working around the clock, LOL. You certainly get things done. Love this necklace. V necks are a favorite. Those same beautiful druks and the birds are such a special touch.

    Just like K. Ralston said…you must have elves working all the time! Your the busiest beader I know…besides me. You have, in the past, almost inspired me to pick up beading like you do…but my hands don’t want to work right anymore.

    Beady, this is so great – I love your work. I love your birdies here. And I agree with KR and SJ, it’s amazing how much beading you do, with perfection no less

    Thanks very much. No – no elves haha. But I am a a fast beader although many things end up redone.

    Just beautiful! I love your color & patterning choices, the slight asymmetry balanced with the dangling birdies, the banding at the back, the way you worked in those subtly lovely druks. Another masterful piece. I, too, am wowed by how you can make so many of these labor-intensive necklaces so quickly! That chicks & hens portraits design necklace?! I was floored! Awesome.

    Beautiful combination of colors, great pattern and I love the unexpected little birdies. Lets just face it… this is a fabulous necklace!

    This is beautiful, Beady! I love the division of the piece with different beads. And the color is divine. Of course the birds make it all come together.

    Opaque Lustered Lagoon–one of my favorite seed beads–what a stunning design Beady. I love the V-style & the patterns used throughout the whole piece. The little birds are soooo sweet! :)

    Thanks for the great comments. Those lustered Lagoon Seed Beads are beautiful. And the birdies are so fun – I fell in love when I saw them.
