About this design:

Fell in love with the button but wasn't sure what to do with it. Started fiddling around with the leather and ended up with this.


Suralya and Pearl Leather, Larimar, Yellow Jade, Blue Lace Agate, Beryl Morganite, all from LB. Jet crystals and antique silver plated hearts from stash.

    I love this necklace Gail. The rings that are on the cord are really beautiful. The button is adorable. It reminds me of the necklace I made for my sister-in-law for Christmas last year.

    Clarification….I did not have the fancy slide on rings like you have. Just extra large closed jump rings. Are they pandora or a pandora type product because I really like them.

    So pretty! Your design is bold yet has a softness to it. I like how you used the rings to hang more charms around the heart pendant. Super cute!

    Thanks for the kind words everybody!

    Deb, You’d be proud. Those rings came from charms a woman was literally selling on the side of the road for a dollar a piece. I just took the charms off and used the rings. :-)
