Working With the Bling....

As stated in a previous post, I created the center piece/pendant a couple of years ago, by simply attaching a vintage (?) rhinestone pin to a filigree stamping.  It was a toss up between using the premade piece with the white faux pearls (bought at one of the craft stores - don't remember which one) , or scale it down some with something I put together.
Ended up creating the embellishment myself using clear glass beads, gray, faux pearls, and rhinestone rondelles.
The hardest part of this blingy project?  Trying to photograph it to show how it really sparkles.    The end result...

Linking up with: "Metamorphosis Monday"
                            "Make It Pretty Monday"
                            "Amaze Me Monday"  
                            "Inspire Me Tuesday"
                            "Tweak It Tuesday" 
                            "Wow Us Wednesday" 
                            "Share Your Cup Thursday"
Hope everyone  enjoyed their holiday weekend.  On July 4th, late afternoon it was only - repeat only 82 deg. outside and 42% humidity.  Wow - unheard of in this part of the country for  July 4th! Beautiful weather!

Really pretty, Glenda! Your weather on the 4th sounds like it was perfect. Only in the 70s here with lots of humidity due to a breeze off Lake Michigan. I need to try making some mint tea like your daughter!
