Here is the beautiful necklace I received from maehem!

She put so much time and thought into it and wrote me a little note telling me the history of all the treasures.  I loved reading the letter, and finding out that the little key is from her sister's diary! 
She used an antique hinge as the clasp, from a house her family owns.

I love the necklace and it's history...thanks so much maehem!!!!  Grin

I've been stalking your gallery and had to speak up when I saw that recycled antique hinge.  That is just plain crafty awesomeness.  It's so great, I'd've used it as the pendant and not just the clasp!

Hi All,

I had hoped that everyone would have received by now, but unfortunately we have had 2 flakes  Angry

Thanks so much to April again for angeling both of them!

So everyone knows:
I am headed out of town tomorrow for 2 1/2 weeks.  I'll try to get online a few times, but I won't have my normal 1 day turn around on messages or feedback.  So bear with me!

I am so glad you like it Smiley

Nothing had a good story but the only new stuff was headpins, the claps, beads, bead caps, spacers, chain..all came from different thrift store jewelry pieces Smiley

Enjoy!
