Superfantastic Bird Girl Cuff

  *sold

I received a request some time ago for a cuff bracelet from one of my favorite Bird Girls. She simply asked if I would do a cuff for her with a hummingbird and a heron, okay. Then I started to think and I had a hard time wrapping my designing brain around how I would pair these two very different birds, so this is what I came up with.....

First I knew I wanted them to be separated by a stone. I think this is a tahoma agate but I've had the stone for a long time, just waiting for the right project and I'm not positive. I've always loved the way this stone looks like a branch.......so pretty with the yin yang color combination.


 A hummingbird needs flowers and prefers a dry land so I made it's own private landscape over here...



 A heron on the other hand, generally prefers an environment with water so I made it, it's own private marsh over here...



That's how I made the Superfantastic Bird Girl cuff, by marrying two different environments with one gorgeous stone.....

I hope your day was good.
