There's something about this serene, smiling face that invokes gratitude for me , so I called it "Blessings".  The pendant began with a carved moon face, surrounded by seed bead embroidery in coral, cornflower blue, turquoise, and gold.  I found a lovely carved mother of pearl flower in my stash and mounted it on a "pleated" round brass base, and added tiny vintage glass cabs in the same blue.  The two pieces are joined with a jump ring and make a great duo. The necklace has hand-wired, coral  Czech glass melon beads (about 4 1/2") and simple oval gold plated brass chain with a lobster claw clasp.  The chain measures 18".  The entire pendant is 3 1/2" long, the flower comes in at 1 1/2".  This was a labor of love as I created each part and figured out how to make it flow together.  it's whimsical, charming, and bound to make you smile.
