so cute!

Sorry gang, I've gotten a little behind this week!
So how pretty and springy are these precious little gems?


Jennifer Desjardins sent these in as her entry for the contest. I love the use of vintage costume jewelry parts!
Jennifer says:

"I was quite inspired by Belle Armoire's latest jewelry issue! The first thing that caught my eye, other than the obvious droolable cover, was an article by Jessica Moreau-Berry, depicting how to create necklaces such as the ones you may be gazing at right now............It took a while to gather the supplies, I had to order some of them online. But once I received them, I was on my way. Aren't the birds adorable??

Finding the perfect pieces to go with the pendants was a lot of fun. For two of the necklaces it took me quite a bit of time to choose the findings, but not so for this black one. It just sort came together, without a second thought. On that note, I don't think this often, but the more I go through my stash of broken down, vintage and costume jewelry pieces and parts, the more I realize I need to get more!! More parts, more possibilities, right?"

You can swing by Jennifer's blog to read more and see more photos.

If you get a chance, swing by her Etsy shop and see her other work. I love her photography, and this is one of my faves!

I've got more entries to upload soon! Keep those photos coming gang!

  5. Don't you guys just love that photo... I'm thinking it would fit right in perfectly at Sweet Mojo's workshop, as we have a little living area with couches and books and end tables, but no art on the walls yet!
