Hello Spring! Copper Wire Bird Necklace

"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.

Pink and Orange Colour Combination

It's probably not often thought of as a colour combination that works, but I absolutely love the colour combination of pink and orange.  I think it's a stunning combination, a bit bold, cheerful, reminds me of summer, a mood booster - and colour does affect your mood.  If you mixed the two colours together you would get pink.....and I love pink too.  I look to nature to find colour pallettes to work with and sometimes I just have to open my back door.  These are the fall berries of Euonymus fortunei.  A happy bit of colour in my fall garden.

Copper and Blue Glass Bead Dangle Earrings

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.

Chunky Carnelian Nugget Bracelet

Chunky statement jewelry never went out of fashion. Some women love a fun, bold fashion bracelet like this bracelet that I've adorned with carnelian nuggets, Czech glass beads and Karen Hill Tribe silver charms. You can see more pics here.
