Is It Spring Yet?

Although the spring equinox lands in March, you can't put a date on the season in Upstate New York; I can remember a snow shower as late as May a few years ago. Last year I wore a sweater and boots to church on Easter Sunday, and at the end of my freshman year in college there was a sizable snow storm in late April. I was going to wait until the end of March to list some spring and summer items but I'm coming down with spring fever. I've had enough of the white stuff!

The two newest items in my inventory are earrings made with wire bird nests. Unlike my bird nest pendant that got got a lot of attention last year, these are smaller and made with only one "egg."

The brown Bird Nest Earrings were made with brown colored copper wire and a teal fresh water pearl. Antiqued copper earring hooks hold the nest at a side angle so that the nest is facing forward instead of upward.

My Nesting earrings are really cute. I used silver plated copper wire for the nest and a teal fresh water pearl in the center. They hang from a chain which is tagged with a silver colored metal mother bird charm. The ear wires used are sterling silver. I hope to finish a matching necklace soon!

Looking ahead to summer, I made a flower ceiling fan pull, but a friend of mine asked for it before I could list it in my store. Just thought I'd share it with you anyway.

I like your take on spring. We already have birds building a nest on the porch...I get a kick out of the poppa bird attacking his image on the glass door.

I love those earrings. I'm just starting to play with wire and wanted to create something similar.

But the important news is: You've won awards on my blog at

I am the lucky lucky girl who read this blog post, saw these earrings, said, almost out loud, I Want That, and bought em! They are gorgeous, unique, and I feel happy and freewheeling with them swinging from my ears.
