About this design:

I'm not sure if I can upload more than two. But maybe this is enough. I had previously passed over these beads I got from Nancy. When I got a closer look I discovered what they were. A bunch of beads she gave me went so well together. Then I decided it needed a I took apart a bracelet I had made with that bird. It wasn't a great bracelet.


Ceramic bird, PC log, sparkly beads, Tiger Eye or Tiger Iron, brass spacers, Tibetan Agate, not sure what some of the other beads are, gold toggle

    Having seen most of these beads I know that this necklace is very lovely. I believe Jane is using some of my all time favorite beauties. I forget their name but have a luster and are so pretty. Its hard to pick that up in a photograph. You’d have to be an expert.

    These beads have so much luster. I love the design, and of course the signature birdie.

    Yes, I can see the luster on many of the beads & it really adds a touch of simmer that contrasts nicely with the other gemstones. The log & birdies are very sweet of course. I like the double strand of lusters in the front drawing attention to the focal. Nice Jane! :)

    Thanks you all! I was undecided about this one…but I think I’ll go ahead and list it. I’ve got some better pictures.

    These beads are beautiful-the luster is beautiful. That a little gaea bird isn’t it? Lovin the purple!

    Love this one sweetjane. Especially the log and birdie. Actually – all of the components are so nice – right down to the toggle.
