Bluebirds

Hello!
I have another jewellery piece to share today, this one is called 'bluebirds'...
I've used lots of different products from the Vintaj range in this necklace. Vicki has a huge selection in the shop here, so why not have a browse and see what inspires you!
A few closeups so you can see things better.... This is the hanging pendant cluster..
I've stamped letters into the metal blank, to create the 'fly free' phrase. The letters were filled in with turquoise Patina before polishing, so the blue is still visible. Really like this effect! As you can see, I've also coloured my little bird charm too, I've sanded him back slightly so the metal shows through. I've done the exact same thing with the bird connectors throughout the piece....
The necklace is put together by joining lengths of chain to the bird connectors, interspersed with beaded stations too...
In this piece I've used Turquoise, along with dyed Jade. A little few Austrian crystals in there too! The piece is long, with three birds on each side..
The Vintaj range has so many cool things to play with, it's difficult to choose just a few to use at a time!
Well, that's my month of jewellery pieces all done! Back to the messy painty stuff in May, so see you soon!
Love Trish x
