A Necklace...

My brother in law will be getting married this coming year and since he asked my oldest daughter, Ahna, to be a junior bridesmaid, all things pretty have been swirling through her head. She pores over my beads, jewelry pieces, scraps of flowers, ribbons, and trims, and today she got me in the mood too. All of a sudden while we were looking through the stash I am constantly collecting, I knew exactly what had to happen to my sterling silver owl pendant. It needed some Shimmerz love. 

I used Shimmerz in AquaMarine and Antique Lace, and Shimmerz Pearls in PeasBMine to paint the owl pendant. (Isn't he chic?!) 



(Look at her... all grown up and modeling for me, hee!) I added some Shimmerz Fire Engine Red to the already distressed Prima leaves for a bit more glam and then to finish off the necklace, I pulled a broken off pearl necklace through Shimmerz in Fire Engine Red and then while still wet pulled it through Shimmerz Pearls in Ballet Slipper.

Love this necklace... think I can get Ahna to loan it to me? Probably not.

Until next time, have a WONDERFUL start to the New Year!!
xx Heidi
