Ornament Thursday, Sprout

by JenniferJangles March 25, 2008

The theme is sprout and this is not a sprout. But it is a cute little spring birdy that I made for someone as a special order. I made several and they turned out so cute that I kept a few for myself. The word sprout makes me think of spring. Birds, flowers, trees, grass.... they are all sprouting this time of year.

This necklace has a few flowers and leaves along with my new little birdy. I used some muted colors that I thought were appropriate spring colors. I know...I said muted, but hey, for me there muted. The brown beads are pressed Czech glass, then there are pearls and faceted Czech rounds.

Check out the list of artists below and see what "sprouted" out of their heads this month.....
