I cannot make jewelry (like talented Jane) but I love everything sparkly, colorful and pretty. So I keep buying cheap beads and even bracelets, necklaces and other pieces from thriftstores because the beads are so pretty. I am a true magpie.
I have been storing these plastic and glass beads for quite some time and just had an idea how to use them with birds! But of course. I made little tweets from tweed, needle felted eyes and wings plus added the matching beaks. Then I had the greatest time choosing the beads to go with birdie - and these ones were born!
