    Hmmmmmmm, what is that word I’m looking for? Oh, yes — gorgeous!!!!!! Love this, Christine! Great job of picking up the shades in the gorgeous pendant, too! BTW, wherever did you find such a gorgeous pendant?!?!?! Where is my thesaurus? I can’t seem to get the word “gorgeous” out of my mind when I look at this……. :D

    CAS says:

    Lynn, it does seem to be a very popular adjective around here, doesn’t it. :)

    I, and please forgive me Kevin, got it on ebay at auction, the seller goes by Waly-bead.

    Sue, I’ve not sold anything yet, only given things away as gifts, but if you’d like to be my first … :)

    Lynn, it’s a simple toggle clasp in brass.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Thanks! I figured it would be fairly simple so it wouldn’t detract from the GORGEOUS pendant. LOL ;-)

    I’ve added a close up of the pendant to better show the coloring.
