The weather is dreary here in New York today, rainy and bleak. No colors anywhere I look except for the lovely Cardinals in the yard and the occasional red cap on a Woodpecker. Still, there is a feeling of expectation and quiet exhilaration (if there is such a thing) of the impending change of season.
Spring is in the air! The birds know it. The trees know it, and we sense it. I suddenly have the urge to create more bird’s nests jewelry especially since I just recently sold the very first bird’s nest pin I ever made.
I’ve made other, similar brooches, pendants and necklaces featuring tiny bird’s nests, but this one had a special meaning for me. It was called “A New Beginning” and it was perfect to me (not something I usually say about anything I make).
To make up for its’ absence, I made a necklace with a bird’s nest pendant yesterday. Strangely, it sold today. I had been working on yet another necklace (with a bird’s nest, no less) when I decided to take a break to check my email. Someone just bought the necklace I made yesterday along with a pair of Heart Leaf earrings.
I’ll be shipping this out tomorrow and completing the second necklace. Guess what, I just got an email from someone asking about a bird’s nest pin!
