One of my aunt's turned 77 in November, and her granddaughter threw her a party, so I made this to give her.

In the gift box:


And here's a closer detail shot:


Made with Powder Blue Swarovski Pearls and Crystal Shade Swarovski Chaton mounts, with sterling silver accents (and a pewter toggle clasp). I wanted to make it with blue stones too, but the ones I ordered wound up being a turquoise colour!

My aunt loved it,and she said she couldn't even tell that it had been handmade!  She thought I bought it in a shop!

Thanks!   I'm just glad that she likes it, as it's so hard making things for older relatives.
