My Entry to the Etsy Aspiring Metalsmiths Team Spring Challenge!

I'm a new member on a growing Etsy Team - the Aspiring Metalsmiths - we are a group of artists with Etsy shops, focusing on metal fabricated jewelry; chatting, sharing, learning, laughing online every day, all day!! The team will be presenting a challenge each month, and this is the March Spring challenge:

Interpret this lovely and classic limeric about Spring:
"Spring has sprung
the grass is riz,
I wonder where
the birdies is?"

I've been holding onto this lovely unakite cabochon for just the right project, and this was definitely it!! The moment I saw the stone, it reminded me of a gorgeous floral Monet painting!!

For the challenge piece, all I needed to add were some silver vines and an adorable sterling birdie!
