I'm so late!  But Spring is not!  I made these pieces for the Art Bead Scene March challenge and I thought I had posted them already!!  I've had a lot of family issues going on, so my mind is not all on beads as usual!  lol . So here is quick recap, as it's already April and the next challenge will be posted soon.

I made two pieces, a necklace and a pair of earrings.

The necklace features beads by Diane Hawkey and Joan Miller!  I forged the bar and wire wrapped tiny seed beads to it.  The cubes are vintage glass that I got in a destash from Allegory Gallery.

Here are the earrings!    I used some lovely pairs of stone which I purchased at Bead & Button last year.  The birds are in a lovey rustic ceramic.  I messy wrapped the wire to form a nest and added bits of crystal to give it a little light.
