About this design:

I made this for a special friend who happens to like fairies. The locket opens. The chain has golden swarovski crystals in it for some sparkle. The earrings were a bit of a trial. I didn't want just the plain fairies, but I couldn't find anything small enough to put with them, so I cut up a filigree, filed the edges and glued (yes, glued!) them to the back of the fairies for contrast, added some chain and poof! She liked them! Do you?
The necklace is 20" long and the earrings are 2" long, with the chain.

Components:

Gunmetal chain, findings, filigree, wire, brass fairies, swarovski crystals, bead fix glue
