trudi bird bracelet

Just a quick post since I am heading out to work and I'm running late!  But here is my latest creation-- the Trudi Bird Bracelet, which is currently for sale at  It is created from some of my prettiest beads (agates!  prehnite!  apatite! vintage czech glass!  lampwork glass beads! Swarovski crystals!), some of which have been in my stash for quite a while, waiting for me to get the lead out and make something with them!

Awww..  isn't this turqoise bird the sweetest little thing?  He has a sterling cap and a lovely Swarovski crystal perched on his head.  A faceted green agate egg is next to him...  Above is a drilled river pebble and a pretty antiqued round bone bead-- peeking above is a lentil shaped lampwork glass bead purchased years ago from the Greater Washington D.C. bead society bead show and I'm sorry to say I have lost the name of the artist who created it.

Paired with my grand-dad's watch, it makes a handsome piece and is very comfortable to wear at 7 3/4". I'm heading out for the rest of the day and evening-- thanks for looking!!  xo
