Spring fever!

Spring is here and so is spring fever. I really have not made much jewellery during the year and have not updated my blog for almost a year. This is why it was so nice to be able to participate in a blog challenge of Thea Elements, Blueberribeads and Smitten beads.

These are the beads I received, there are just a few extras from my own stash which I forgot to remove before taking the photo ( they are those pink and brown ones with flowers in them)

And this is what I created.  The beads were so lovely I wanted to make something I could wear a lot. I work in a hospital and cannot really wear any jewellery there but a nice necklace to hang my name tag from is something I always wear there.

Sorry for the bad photos. I took them on my iPad and they are not half as good as I wanted them to be...

Aren´t these beads precious!  I love the little bird and the lovely flower pendant!  The cinnabar type bead is from my own stash as are the red and green ones. I used cotton cord to knot the beads and added the lovely silk ribbon in the back. Adding more beads would have made this far too heavy, silk ribbon is a perfect solution, also making the necklace far more comfortable to wear.

 Earrings can also be worn. These are asymmetrical which is always fun, at least with such cute beads!

See what the other participants have created!
