Finished - Finally

I originally posted about this little gem that I found at an estate sale here.
As it turns out, I don't think I have ever taken so long to finish one necklace. Originally started working on it in April, then putting it on the back burner a couple of times

I ended up using a different chain I already had and this is the end result.
Guess I could have straightened it up a bit before taking the picture, but I had taken it outside to photograph, it was hot, and I was ready to call it quits.
I am calling this Finished !!!!
Had thought about using a small charm also, but figured it was time to stop.
Good thing I don't make jewelry as a source of income to eat, because I would starve.

Predicted high today 100. 98 now with a heat index of 107, so I am playing here today. Just finished replacing a few tiny rhinestones, cleaning up the mess after spilling some, and attempting to get glue off my fingers.

Yep - I am avoiding what "needs" to be done around the house. What can I say !
Have a great week!

Wow I'm so glad we're out of the 100's - it was brutal so I feel for ya!

You make the most beautiful pieces!

Love the color Glenda. When you feel it's finished, it's finished! I have to quit while I'm ahead before I start adding too much stuff to a piece. Sometimes less is more!!
We're heating up to at least 100 tomorrow...try to stay cool.

I remember that beautiful, little blue vial! What a pretty way to showcase it - it looks great.

Hope you're having a great weekend! It's a warm one here again.

So pretty Glenda. I'm so glad someone else gets glue on their fingers. I'm afraid I may glue my fingers to my desktop some day! Going to be a hot week. Hope you can stay inside and stay cool. laurie

Oh girl you make me laugh. I think we all have a bit of starving artist in us. Love how it turned out. It reminds me a bit of a neclace I have that once belonged to my sweet mother. It has a long skinny perfume bottle hanging from a chain. It is that same gorgeous blue.
Hugs,
Jann
