Yes, so I have a thing for birds! A while ago, I did a swap with Lynda of Diva Designs! She makes the most incredible polymer clay pendants I've ever seen!! Even the backs have gorgeous subtle designs in them.....just stunning! So this is one that I asked her for, and I finally had an idea of something to make that I was happy with. I used a large green raku bead , those gorgeous Gaea beads that I stained with ink(like Gaea told me!) to highlight the crazing, some wood beads, lovely little green cube ceramic beads from LeAnn of Summer Studio Pottery, irid. green druk beads, tiny rectangle peridot beads , and some handmade sterling components......ohhhh, and a couple of the neatest pcs of amber beads(vintage) that I think i've ever seen. I mixed sterling and copper and really felt it worked out well. I'm going to try to break away from the green for the next piece I make.......I've made it a goal!!
