I am so ready for Spring! We had very mild weather this past weekend. It was nice to get outside, but it really wasn't like Spring. Everything is still dead/ dormant. There were no spring flowers to look at. The crocus and my Hyacinths are starting to come up, so there's a little green out there.
This necklace is Spring inspired.
Here's a collection of red necklaces. The one in the middle is one of my most favorite. It was created when I was trying to make something special with some beads my neice (Isabelle) gave me. The striped beads were from Isabelle. Thanks for the inspiration, Boo!
I got a small bag full of opals recently at the auction. They are all different sizes, and not very fiery. They are mostly "crackled" looking. I thought I'd see how one would look in a vintaj setting. What do you think? I really like it. It's a "less is more" design.

This is my entry for the Vintaj March Design Challenge. I decided to put my Blue Jay pendant on a brown hand woven cord. The cord has some flecks of aqua blue, so the Blue Jay goes well. I put little blue beads in the toggle bar, to further coordinate the blues. The challenge is underway, here's the link to the site, so you can vote:
