About this design:

If it seems like I am all over the place with my designs, it's because I am making a conscious effort to try new components, techniques and styles.

This piece is atypically girly and romantic for me. I think it has a touch of Victoriana about it--hence the name (which is taken from an awesome, 60s-vintage Kinks song!) It also marks the first time I have ever used a bead cap. :-)

Components:

Two brass heart pendants and three brass flower charms; brass chain, jump rings and clasp; purplish-blue freshwater pearls (remnants from my Hong Kong trip)and beautiful faceted glass "Misty Moor" beads from Lima Beads.
