Robin Eggs: a sign of the season
It's a surefire bet spring is just about here (knock on wood) when you spot the first robin trolling the lawn. Hopping about the thawing ground, searching for worms. Looking out yesterday morning and spotting the rust-breasted robins was an exciting sight not only because it means winter is nearing it's end, but because it's warm enough to work long hours in the studio (which does not have heat).
So in honor of these beautiful birds and their petite iconic eggs, I created a new piece: the Tiny Robin Egg necklace. Robin eggs are one of nature's gems, brilliant pastel blue. These darling handmade enamel eggs necklaces come with a choice of speckles or not. Another salute to spring!
