That is beautiful!
I'm sure she will love it.

The pendant thing - what is it made of?

Oh, thank you!!! I was afraid no one would like it. The pendant is a lampwork glass bead from an artist named Catharine Weaver. There's a Kokopelli on the reverse side, which I'd have taken a picture of, except my camera is acting up.

What's a Kokopelli?

And I didn't like to ask too many questions the first time - but what is the drawing/picture of the side that is shown?
Using my imagination, it looks like two mountains with a star over them. Or it could be most anything else.

Are there going to be earrings to match, later on? (e.g. for birthday or Mother's Day)

I think Kokopelli is a deity (associated with Hopi Indians?). Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. He's usually depicted kind of hunched over and playing the flute. Yep, the side that's showing is mountains and a star.

For some reason earrings didn't even occur to me! I do have stones leftover. I'm going to go make some right now!

Thanks!

Yep, I think my mom likes simple, non-chunky jewelry. Besides, I'm new to jewelry making-didn't want to get too complicated right off the bat Smiley I hope she likes it.

Thank you for the nice comment!
