Ta-Da!! I posted awhile back about this pendant I found in a re-sale store that had my Grandma's initials on it. I was terribly unsure what to do with it. I knew I didn't want just a gold chain but couldn't see colored beads either. Saturday, I was skulking around in my local bed shop and found a strand of beads that was my inspiration. It was antique gold, faceted, maybe 8 mm round beads. The light bulb went off. I could make a simple beaded strand, using 3 types of these vintage looking glass beads. I added golden pearls and amber bicones. It still has the "look" of chain, but with gorgeous, sparkly beads!! :::Smiles::: I am sooooo happy with how it turned out. I hope she likes it!! I added a magnetic clasp so it would be easy for her to put on and off. I think it measures around 22 inches.
