What do I do when I have a million & one things to do? I create a piece of jewelry that the picture really doesn't do justice. I could have finished my laundry....but then I can always finish my laundry. I could have vaccuumed up the 1/4" of dust that has been accumulating as a result of the kitchen remodel. I could even have done the dishes....but NO....I did what any Bella would do....& I CREATED! I love pearls & the more mixed up and varied the more I love them. I love anything vintage...and while the vintage pin I used to make this piece may not be really, really old I did purchase it at an antique store. I love it...it is chunky and would look just fabulous with anything black. So I will go back to the stash and see what other baubles I can drum up for more interesting pieces. Blessings for a wonderful...creative evening.
