Amethyst Starling Brooch

Naming jewelry is always a tricky thing. I want a name that connects to the piece somehow, but after using birds in my jewelry for years, I'm having more difficulty with originality. This morning, after staring at the latest brooch, which I eventually set yesterday with rose-cut amethysts, because those were the stones I had in my stash that fit best, I was stumped. But Google is my friend, as a quick search for amethyst+bird turned up an amethyst starling, which I'd just seen in my Pinterest feed. So there you are.  Serendipity.
