    Beautiful necklace! I love the aquamarine teardrops with the patina covered caps! And I understand the “oop” I’m still trying to figure out how to delete and all that technical stuff. It’s sooo embarrasing.

    Good work with the patina. Your necklace is darling.

    I’m laughing at the tech difficulties. Because i have them in here also. I don’t think you can delete comments though.
