My newest (most favorite) Creation.

My newest creation at is this Filigree flower necklace that I have embellished with czech glass crystals and a small yellow vintage flower bead in the center. The centerpiece of the necklace is actually a pin i have found while i was antiquing in a nearby town. I have taken the pin, which i believe to be brass and removed the pin finding from the back. Then i took this pendant and gave it a nice dark patina. After all this i burnished it with a metal bristle brush to give it a nice shine. I then added a chain and the other beads. The result is this gorgeous necklace. Whats old is now new again!

That pair of earrings managed to accumulate over 300 views in the short time the front page was up and my shop had 19 users add it to their favorites. It sure was an exciting evening!
