About this design:

My sister found this dragonfly pendant in a little shop in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. She said can you make something for me with this? Of course I can. I had purchased a vintage Mother of Pearl necklace at an estate sale. I took it apart and added some Swavorski Glass Pearls and some Swavorski crystals.

Components:

Mother of Pearl Dragonfly Pendant, Vintage rice Mother of Pearl beads, Swavorski glass pearls and Swavorski crystals, small SS rounds.

    So pretty. These are the pieces I love hearing about the most. To find how old pieces become merged with other old pieces to get a new and treasured life. Love it.

    Of all the pieces I’ve made my sister – this is one she wears alot.

    Linda – one of my past times is going to estate sales. I’ve been to quite a few where someone has died and they are auctioning off everything that the family didn’t want. Really alot of fun – and you never know what you’ll find. Sometimes I have bid on a box of junk and gotten the whole box really cheap – just because I wanted one item in it. I paid $2.00 for the MOP necklace.

    Thanks ladies – glad you like it.
