    Yes this is what set me in jail! Although I did get an excellent price on them and they are practically flawless! I had been wanting to use this clasp for a whhile and it seemed as if the beads and the sunflower were made for each other.

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank-you Tara, Martha and Mahala! I am currently growing sunflowers in my garden and they are over 7 feet tall. I feel like a a midget next to them. I love how bright and cheery they are!

  10. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    They are! My mom used to live up in North Central Kansas. Kind of out in the country…No big towns around and lots and lots of farms. I loved to go down there and see the sunflower fields when they were in bloom. When you see them at different times during the day, all the sunflowers would face the sun and actually move so they would always face the sun. It was really cool to see hundreds of them all facing the same way. :)

    Antique to Chic says:

    I love this! It is so vibrant, but not the kind of vibrant that is loud and bright. It is a vibrancy that comes out of a piece of jewelry where all of the components work in harmony to make a complete beauty. Absolutely stunning!
