This is my first time working with crystals- I actually kind of like it, especially toned down by the vintage brass components.
It's still really sparkly, but a little less BLING

Those are so pretty, and the colours go really well together, I'm actually making a locket with similar colours as we speak!

I absolutely adore these.  I love the sparrow (even have one tattoo'ed on my wrist!) and the colors of the crystals and antique-y brass are just darling together.  You did a great job!!!

Are you putting these into your Etsy shop?
Just wondering...  Cool

katie- these aren't QUITE the iconic sparrow, but they're sterling, and kind of close:
