What materials did you use? Wire, bird charms, glass flowers, crystals, headpins, chain, toggle clasp

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that even when a project frustrates me (the wire doesn't cooperate, for example), I've learned to work with the materials instead of against them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Play with the materials! Different 'eggs' will yield different results. I've used freshwater pearls in this necklace. That required a thinner wire than what I'd used before. Round 4mm beads also work well. Take the inspiration piece and make it your own, though. Don't outright copy... put yourself and your "twist" on the piece! (It will mean more to you!)

Your designs are very different and beautiful. Keep up the good work as you were given a gift.

I am just going back through my pages. Not sure how I missed this! Thanks so much for the kind words. I want my work to be unique and each piece is one of a kind. People are often drawn to the design that "speaks" to them and I like that reaction.

I have made this neclase before but it had a couple of minor changes. Very pretty with a neat vintage look
