Why a swan of course, enchained by a golden choker, accompanied by some coral from the South Seas and a healing crystal. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  1. Hi W, happy spring! are you out working the garden yet? As your son may have reported, we’ve just gotten another bit of snow…gah!
    That cigar box is a bit unusual isn’t it? The gate opening that is. Perfect for your project. At first I thought the swan was tattoo’d, but now I see it’s a series of drawings. Somehow it makes me a little sad that it’s held back by a crown collar and chain. I recognize the leaf ribbon, Alys sent me some when she used it on a costume she made, I’ve tucked bits and pieces of it into a number of projects.
