Worktable Wednesday: Hummingbird Necklace

I'm having so much fun playing with flat marbles and magazine images. When my mother-in-law came to visit recently, she had a copy of Birds & Blooms magazine. She has a million hummingbird feeders and the magazine was a special issue about gardening for birds and butterflies. The photography is gorgeous and the perfect size for the bigger marbles! "Can I cut that up?" I ask. She gives me the look and I explain my idea. She mailed it to me a few weeks ago after she was finished with it, and now I have the perfect Hummingbird Necklace to send back to her! I may need to make a tutorial about this project as well :)

Lovely pendant. She will love it. My mother loved hummingbirds, too. Not a day goes by that I see something of a hummingbird that I don't think of her.

Thanks for your comment. I'm glad I will have so many good thoughts when I see them in the future :)
