Deep Thoughts

About this design:

A victorian kind of stamping, colored with inks, layered, antiqued and strung with vintage red beads and chain. She's been on my table for a bit and been quite neglected so I dressed her up. Does she pass muster?
The necklace is 18" long with a 3" extender, the pendant is 2 1/2" in diameter. The earrings dangle 1".


Brass chain, wire, findings, pendant, vintage rose beads, czech cystals.

    She is so beautiful. Gorgeous design. That stamping is stunning and you put there exactly right chain and beads etc. Earings are lovely too. I quess this is gonna have new home before you have time to say “harakka” ( that’s a Finnish saying). Love it :)
