Crows and Clovers








I have some special components to share with you today!  These lovely crow charms were made by Sasha Crow - Artisan Jewelry ComponentsThey are hand drawn with many layers of colored pencil on hand cut copper pieces. Each layer is baked and sealed.  



I was very lucky to have won a pair of little beaded "U" connectors by SagaHaus Components for a 'giveaway' prize during a show.  Aren't those colors just perfect?!! I wanted to bring a Celtic knot vibe to the design so I added wire components by Joan Moritz Langmo.  I'm pretty thrilled with the way this design came together.

Revisiting a design I made last year with crows and clovers ~ couldn't resist showing you.  I guess I'm just in love with that spring green with that pop of black!

While at Bead & Button this past summer, I found these wonderful little vintage clover connectors from a vintage dealer.  I added teeny-tiny vintage enameled four leaf clovers for the dangles.  The top AB faceted beads are not vintage but do have a vintage feel so it all works nicely.









So happy to be here, and a million thank yous for stopping by today!

All my best,
