I CAN FLY




I always wished I could, and I love birds for the fact that they can! How incredible would that be? My best friend told me as a very small girl, she jumped off the top of her stairs in the house because she TRULY believed she could fly! (BTW, she was fine). Erin, of Treasures-Found, speaks daily of the power of belief!! So when I saw this pendant from Julie Haymaker Thompson.....had to have it! This necklace came to me effortlessly...the pendant spoke. I've never worked with brass wire...I'm so much a silver girl, but it lent itself to this piece perfectly, as did Doreen Willey's polymer clay beads(so beautiful!), Gaea's crackle beads(so beautiful!), and Green Girl Studio's pewter bird(so beautiful!). So I made this necklace with and for the power of belief, belief you can fly, or the equivalent in life, if you believe!

Oh Sharon...that is really special. I love it all...I have been fascinated with birds this year, particularly since I have a new birdfeeder...and I have been collecting bird feathers of late and want to do something with them. Not sure how to connect them yet, but now I see that you have made it come together brilliantly! Thanks for the nice link...I would agree that I blog about belief and inspiration...you were certainly inspired in the creation of this piece. (But I would not suggest that anyone believe that they can really fly!) Soar on Sharon! Enjoy the day! Erin

This necklace is beautiful. I love to see how you used so many different artists work in it. I also love the tiny little bead work, I know that takes a lot of time. But it is so much nicer looking than a chain would have been.

Thank you Erin, Sue, Marie, and Lorrie for such kind words and continuing inspiration!

Oh, Sharon!! You outdid yourself this time!! Lovely!!!! How did you like working with brass? I think it looks fabulous.

I love It!! You know what? This is the first piece of jewelry that have feathers as one of its components that really likes me. Certainly it’s about the way that you use it.
