Inspiration Wednesday - Whisked Tones

Design-Seeds - Whisked Tones

I was inspired to make a necklace this week. It features a Vintaj Natural Brass branch which I wire wrapped a porcelain bird pendant (from Marsha Neal Studios) to. I made the wire wrap messy so it was sort of like branches.
I just love this cute little bird.

then I wire wrapped agates, wood and a glass flower

and bronzite beads finish off the back of the necklace. I just love bronzite.

  1. What a charming pendant! Great necklace for the Fall :)

  2. Thanks Marilyn! and thanks to Kathryn for sending in her inspiration photo.

  3. Love the necklace with the bird pendant, and the way you made the wire wrapping feel like part of a nest/twig thing.
