Here are the pieces I made for the Put a Bird on It swap.   

Here is an owl necklace I made.   The stones are pink rhondite (I think).   I forgot to get an official measurement of it, but in the process of making it I measured it at over 24in. once.   I'm roughly guessing it is about 26 in.   So, its a long one.




Here he is boxed up to go!  I just love this pic.




A bird nest ring I made.   The nest is made from tarnish resistant silver plate wire and the eggs are freshwater pearls.

 


Owl earrings.   I found the charms while vacationing in Indiana and the beads are vintage German glass.

I love these, especially the necklace! And I really like the way you did the packaging, too.

It's bad enough wasting time, without killing it.

Thanks, guys.   It was hard to let the necklace go.   That owl charm was the last the store had and I so want some kind of necklace like it for myself!

They're all lovely!  I think I like the little owl earrings the best, probably cos I rarely wear a necklace, but I'd wear those earrings all the time.
