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!)

I am new to the whole jewelry making thing. But my pieces are usually mixed metals and definitely not main stream cookie cutter. I just love your pieces.
