An Item A Day - Day 17

I have had a bag of old, odd pearls around for years.  Every once in a while I'd need one for a project.  I'd dig past this one rejecting it time after time.  I always thought I'd never use it because it was so big.  Never say never.  It worked up into one of the nicest pendants yet!  

Here it is:

The focal piece for this pendant was saved from an old necklace. Silver toned filigree adds charm while two Ruby Red Swarovski crystals add sparkle.

Pendant measures approximately 5/8" x 1 5/8" or 15 x 40 mm.

Comes with an 18" leather cord necklace. Can easily be removed to place on your favorite chain.

Hi, came by just to say thanks for following! It's always nice to meet new bloggers. The latest necklace you made is gorgeous! I don't know what any Etsy Treasury is, but it sounds good! ;O) Have a good weekend!

WOW Sandy! This is soooo elegant! I love pearls, too. I have 1 - yes 1 - pearl necklace that my ex-hubby gave me when we started dating back in 1967 And I have pearl earrings. THIS will definitely go on my wish list!!!! I have a birthday coming in May..... hmmmmm!!!

Absolutely beautiful! That is how it goes...some of my best projects also end up being things I never thought of doing or using before!

Sandy, I've got to chime in. I'm liking the simple elegance of your design. I bet it's ten times more stylish than the jewelry you salvaged the pearl from!
