26 chain portion on this necklace.  The chain is made up of vintage pearl linked chain with a combination of Silvertone bar chain up one side which makes this an asymetrical necklace.
On the bar chain portion of this chain there are 3 charms attached.  One is a Wander 6839 token, a hand wire wrapped birds nest with 3 aqua bird eggs in it, and a Fleur-d-leis pewter tone charm.
Dropping down from the chain is a fabulous vintage rhinestone circle that then has the gorgeous vintage white porcelain watch piece with the silver flying sparrow attached to it.  
The bird attachments to the watch pieces are a trademark of Mimi-Torias jewelry.

A fun necklace made out of a mix of vintage elements, new and hand created charms.  So much fun to be able to create one-of-a-kind designs for customers.

I've never seen one that disappoints, so keep trusting yourself -- you're totally on the mark! And please keep sharing with us.
And keep thinking spring -- Woo Hoo!

MimiToria writes: Thank you to all of my JMS family for your kind and generous comments on my latest JMS post. It's a real joy to be able to make one-of-a-kind designs and be able to fuel my creativity on a regular basis. Thanks for allowing me to share them occasionally with you all and for not getting too sick of seeing my creations. The feedback is such an encouragement when your a designer and often are out of touch with the real world, but busily creating in your "nest" a studio. ;-) Thanks again, and may this necklace signal a sign of Spring being on its way in Minnesota. The birds outside my windows have recently being fueling my creativity and designs. Glad you've enjoyed them.
