Bird Songs...

There's a bramble behind the apartment building.  Grown up along the back fence, it seems like it was a long-forgotten houseplant that finally escaped its container.  Its roots have dug deep into the cracks in the cement and often times there are birds in the branches.  Sometimes there are hundreds of birds in the branches.  Even with the windows closed, their songs can still be heard.
  
The many birds and their songs were the inspiration for this new necklace.  I took the color palette from the misty whites and subtle grays from yesterday's excursion in Central Park.  

The porcelain focal bead is from Melanie Brooks Lukacs of Earthenwood Studio, the sterling silver toggle and fine pewter nest bead are from my family at Green Girl Studios, the pearls and moonstone are from Talisman Associates Inc., the Swarovski crystals from Fusion Beads, the "Vintage Bling" is from Natural Touch, and all of the silver chain is from Ornamentea.
