    Deb…you certainy have a way of turning a clearnance item into an heirloom look. This piece is so soft and pretty! It’s looks Victorian.

    Deb Harding says:

    Thank you Becky and Nancy. Nancy I think what gave that effect is the ring I hung it from. I just happened to find it in my stash. As well as.all the glass beads. None purchased at same time or place but matched.

    Nancy Mc says:

    By the way…’clearnance’ is a real word. It means,”Nance found another bargain.”
    Ha ha ha ha. It really means. “Nance had 3 cups of coffee.” ;)
    (Clever typo,no)?

    Wow Frida there must be quite a menagerie at your house. So you have any of those fancy chickens? They are so pretty.

    I have the same pendant in my stash! Love your design! I may have to “borrow” a few ideas….

  11. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    LOL I actually have another one. Believe or not I bought them for the extra charms that came with them. I liked the pendant but NEEDED the charms for a pair of earrings. And they were clearanced! My style!

    You know I don’t care if you borrow an idea….that’s why we share them here isn’t it. :D

    Deb Harding says:

    Ooops…thank you Susie.

    Julie Shane says:

    Perfect! Another example of Keep It Simple and let the stones and pendant speak for themselves. I really like the 3 tiny crystals (of course!!!) on either side of the pendant ring because they give a little bit of movement and pop!!!

    Deb Harding says:

    Thank you Julie.
