How many of us played that "loves me, loves me not" game when we were little? In our neighborhood, we pulled little petals off dandelions. Well, here's the nostalgic grown-up version, a solid brass hear charm with a working spinner.  And the necklace is special as well.  I made repurposed it from an antique piece circa the 1930's.  The original had glass pearls which had an awful lot of wear, so I took it apart and gently cleaned the beautiful brass filigrees.  (These are cast metal, not stamped, with a lot of intricate detail).  I added new cream Swarovski crystals and create an asymmetrical design that also incorporates the original brass clasp.  The new version closes with a brass clasp and has a chain extender as well.  It's just lovely the way it sits on the neck.  It's always really enjoyable to me to bring something back to life for a second go-round.  The pendant is about 1 1/2" high, and the necklace is 19".  This is an artisan designed piece that will never be replicated.  Lovely to combine with the Bee Mine earrings. https://www.raspberryfieldsdesign.com/product/bee-mine
