SWING





It's hard for me at this time of year to make anything without some kind of sparkle. I loved this vintage rosary chain when I found it, and it just seemed so perfect with the beautiful faceted rock crystal, plus I love black, and don't use that much of it in jewelry, so this just seemed right. When I was done, they reminded me of the roaring 20's, the flappers, things flaying about, fringe on dresses, and dangly earrings that really swing.
My apologies to everyone for not visiting blogs as much...I have just been exhausted, and trying to catch up with home stuff for Christmas. I hope to be back on track by tomorrow. Again, I appreciate each and every one of you, and feel I am blessed to have your friendship.
Thank you all.
