I made a set of charms for some really special people last year for the holidays.
The words on each one varied, some say, "nest". "nestling" and "nesting".
Each finished piece was made with a domed crystal laid over an image of a bird (much clearer than the picture shows.)
The base is a pink mother of pearl bead, side drilled at the top. The surface was painted with 3 layers of paint, 2 greens and one copper. The word "nest" was cut from a turn of the century dictionary.
This particular piece, was made for Chris Keys.
I also made one just like it for sweet Heather Bluhm.
