Hummingbird Seed Bead Necklace by Line-of-Birds Hummingbird Seed Bead Necklace by Line-of-Birds
I DID NOT MAKE THIS;
I merely photographed the piece for my mother and Sister-in-Law.
They are made using size 11 seed beads. It takes over 22 hours to finish one necklace.
I offer them for sale at: lineofbirds.etsy.com 48$ each.
The fabulous design is by Dragonfay.com - Unique Beaded Jewelry.

- 1 SOLD!!! 11/23/08 -

This beaded hummingbird is our design and was featured in Bead & Button magazine as a condensed pattern a few years back. We have the complete pattern & kit available on our website: www.beadedpatterns.com/index.p…

Great job whoever made it.

That's why there is a link to your website in the description, attributing the design to you. I also mentioned that it was made by my mother (who is now deceased). I wish I could tell her you said she did a great job. She would be very pleased.
By the way, this is the second time you have commented on one of my photos without actually reading the description. Disappointing, especially since I have tried from the beginning to give you all due credit for your beautiful design and direct interested parties to your business.

She's taken a break from beading though, which makes me sad - but I know how it goes! Life sometimes makes it difficult to keep it up.

And sometimes we want to pursue some other means of creative expression.

Isn't it? Ladies in my family make them. Though I do a lot of beadwork, I haven't gotten around to making one of these, but I sure do love them!

Well, Mom, Sis-in-law and niece do get to bead together, they're neighbors, but my Aunt is in the "lower 48". I need to get more photos of her Parrots, they're just as fine as the hummingbirds, but a lot more colorful.
