Back in March when I went out to California for the Moulin Rouge Art Event I needed a THANK YOU gift for my precious friend Cynthia. For as I told you in the post about The Mission Inn (Click HERE to see) Cynthia was a tour guide extraordinaire! So it needed to be special!
I bought her a deep pink purse covered in roses (which you can see as the back drop for these photos) & in the purse I put all sorts of goodies. Including this necklace I created for her. Cynthia is a girly girl & loves everything feminine. I started with sterling silver wire & did a very open version of the TWISTED SISTAH Necklace taught at Adorn Me (in March 2010) by my amazing friend & mentor Diana Frey.
I had been buying some luscious Czech Glass Buttons & thought she would really love the colors & sparkle that these little gems have. Some beautiful pink & lavender crystal beads along with some wonderful soft lustrous pearls went into the “Bead Soup”. And to add some texture… vintage pink seam binding. The cherry on top of the cake… the glistening faceted crystal prism at the very bottom. That little treasure had been in my stash for a very long time just waiting for the right occasion to shine!
I hope you enjoyed seeing one of the things that I have created. And Cynthia, I hope you LOVE wearing it as much as I loved creating it for you!
