It is the glass flower that I found for $5.00. You can see more about it in my post Scavenging.
I used three of the leaves and added a mix of vintage MOP buttons, bone beads, and Czech glass beads wire wrapped to a brass chain to complete a necklace. It is one of my favorites and I think it makes quite the statement piece.
I submitted it to Jewelry Affaire magazine for publication consideration and was very excited when I was notified that it was going to be published.
Before printing I was emailed the proof to be sure it was right and that corrections were made if needed...and I got a big surprise! It looked so good...had they sent the wrong picture?...for a minute I didn't even recognize it as mine! I mean it had been a while since I had seen it and it just looked too good to be mine! But then I saw the glass leaf and thought WOW! I did pretty good. Their magazine and photography is the best!
I couldn't not be happier!
