Mother Nature is confused!

In my last post, I remarked how the May Long weekend signals the beginning of summer here. This picture was taken just moments ago looking out my front door. Yes, it's SNOW! Heavy, wet, white snow! The moisture will be wonderful...but I think Mother Nature is confused on the dates!

Restyled Cascade Necklace

Luxurious creamy white vintage faux pearl beads are given a new purpose in this hand made necklace. Each vintage bead is meticulously wired to a nickel and lead free antiqued silver tone cable link chain that measures approximately 18” (45cm) in length. The chain closes securely and easily with a lobster style clasp. A single bead drops romantically from the clasp. The nine beads that cascade in the front of the necklace are graduated in size; the largest measures approximately 15mm and the smallest measures approximately 8mm. No longer for just for ‘old’ ladies, this necklace is now restyled for a modern look that will take you from blue jeans to weddings! This piece is available for purchase by clicking here.
