I love to collect funky jewelry -- the more colorful the better. And I have gathered some beautiful and weird pieces over the years. My friend and sister-in-law, Laura, has similar taste. We often make or buy each other quirky jewelry for birthday presents -- a tradition of sorts. (17 years now!?!)
Assuming Laura runs into the same predicament, I made her a simple, black necklace for her birthday this year. Hopefully, the blackbird carved into the pendant adds just enough chirp.
Now to make the same one for me. We'll be necklace twins.
