Colors of the Sea Birds Nest Necklace

A new creation to share with you a simple sea blue amazonite necklace with a silver birds nest containing light blue pearl eggs.  The amazonite beads are faceted so they are just a little sparkly in a great kind of way.  The chocolate spacer beads keep the necklace from being too formal.  I like my jewelry designs to go from jeans to dinner dress with ease.

Doesn't the necklace remind you of the ocean?  I love the pale blue colors of the sea... Just looking at these photos brings back memories of the sun on my face and the breeze in my hair... it was a glorious day.  It's snowing again... wouldn't it be nice to wake up tomorrow morning and walk on the beach?

A closer view of the woven silver nest with the tiny blue pearl eggs nestled inside.

I hope you are staying warm and cozy tonight like we are at our farmhouse in the country sitting in front of a fire in the fireplace listening to the crackling sounds and munching on peanut brittle - yum.  I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday.

Blessings - Julie

Julie, this is so pretty! And I remember that sea and those colors too, as I sit here typing with my fingerless gloves! There are signs of spring, but it's a long way away! Have a lovely evening! Sherry

I was just telling Jack's grandmother and great-grandmother today about your jewelry - specifically the birdsnest necklace! I love this version with the beads! Lovely - like you!

Oh Julie, what a beautiful necklace! It DOES remind me of the ocean... I also love the different blue shades of the water.

I also like the leather bracelet you showed us in your post from Friday. In Sweden we use to say: In the simple, lives beauty. It´s not a good translation, but I think you understand! If I was a millionaire, I would buy all your jewellery ;-).

The bird and the squirrel are so cute, eating beside each other as old friends. It must be nice to see those cute ones every day! :-)

Have a nice Sunday!

Many hugs to you
Beatrice

I would live by the sea, if I could. We thought about living on the coast, but I wanted to be closer to family. SIGH. maybe someday.
