Description from Dill: When Nancy used Vintaj Arte as her least favorite metal, it reminded me that I like their lily of the valley pendant, because that was my grandmother's favorite flower. That got me thinking about what I might have included if I had made her some jewelry (unfortunately, she passed away before I started jewelry-making).

Her birthday was in December, hence the blue theme. And I think she would have disliked the Vintaj Arte, like Nancy, so I would have painted that piece. She loved jewelry and had pretty wide-ranging taste, but she never bought herself anything expensive, so I thought that I would probably like to make her something really nice for the first pieces I made for her.

    Thanks, all! I really would have loved to see her reaction to my jewelry. She would have been so tickled, and you can bet she would have been telling everyone from the postman to the supermarket cashier about where her jewelry came from. :)

    First I love vintaj arte metal but, I colorize it. Vintaj is made in the USA and the cost reflects it but the company puts out “a great place to start.” I treat myself to hours with their videos and sorting thru design gallery.
    This pick is fabulous and I imagine your grandma and mine sharing stories at their book club. In the imagination of the creative, anything is possible.
