I AM KEEPING THIS ONE

Hi Everyone!
I don't care who wants it. I am keeping this necklace for me. I started out with about 20 ideas for this piece of glass made by my good friend Lori Cook. Mike wanted something for his jewelry box of course. However, when it came right down to it I wanted it for me. I actually have a blouse that is the same color of the green/gold dicro at the bottom of the glass. The other thing, I am always battling with, are clasps. I really dislike most of the commercial clasps that are readily available. I do purchase very expensive hand made clasps for some of my pieces, however, most of the time I make my own. The clasp on this piece is a vintage Swarovski that my Nan gave to me. Hope you enjoy!!

  7. of COURSE you should keep it.

    I'm so sorry that I sold many of my favorite pieces over the years.

    You can ALWAYS sell it - but you can't always get it back!

    It's just awesome - very vibrant and has visual 'heft' - I love it.
