"Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the summer in the sun and winter in the shade." Charles Dickens, Great Expectations The anticipation of spring - I look forward to warmer temperatures, clear air, garden cleanup, flowers starting to poke through the soil, and the arrival of new/more birds. We always have Junco's and chickadees in our backyard during the winter and spring months, so the arrival of other species is something that we look forward to. And, because I have a fondness for these creatures, and like creating jewelry with images of them, I'm posting this necklace that I recently made. The frame is pure copper wire, wire wrapped seed beads and poppy jasper stone beads. I have it listed here on my website.
I've been playing with copper again and made these pretties. There are a number of shades of blue that work well with copper and this is one of them. In going through my bead stash I came across these blue glass lentil shape beads - there were two, so of course I made earrings. I'll be listing them in our Etsy shop in the new year.
