A little green and all is well

My honey and I needed a little bit of green, so we headed to the coast for a long weekend. Just before leaving and in time to wear, I finished "Bluebirds in the Garden". Love, love, love it.  I wore it when we went out shopping and strangers actually stopped me and asked where I had purchased it. What a nice feeling to say that I had made it! My wonderful sister gave me the little bone birds, perfect match for the focal glass bead. Yellow swarovski pearls, dark green drops, dark green and turquoise glass beads and seed beads were used to complete my masterpiece.

While in Vancouver and out driving in the rain (wet but green), I spied out of the corner of my little eye a sign on a tiny little store front "Bead Freaks"....and oh yeah.... that is where I found these wonderful bone carved beads. The owner wasn't in but when I go back in September that's where I'm going to be. I can't wait to start creating with these beauties...


  1. Wonderful necklace! The little birds are such a nice touch, and I love that it's made of three separate bead-embroidered sections. Awesome. :)

  2. Beautiful necklace! And, your finds are great!

  3. Oh yeah, it's gorgeous! I am so glad the little birds worked in it. I can't wait to see it in real time.
