What a delightful piece of jewelry you've created!  All the elements are well chosen (wherever did you find that tiny, tiny pocketwatch??) and positioned (gluing them in place was definitely the way to go), the chain has a nice Victorian feel, and the flamingo charms are the perfect finishing touch.

So I definitely will definitely be stealing your idea one of these days.

However, while the etsy seller you linked has a lot of great pendant cases, including arched and other shapes, plus some very cool domes, they're only sold in sets that contain a variety of sizes and, for the most part, anywhere from 5 to 25 pieces.  Knowing I would probably only ever use a couple of pieces, I did a bit of googling and found a bead-and-findings vendor who sells similar pendants in packages of 2 each; for anyone who might have similar limited needs, here are links to a few of them, one rectangle and two round:

I love this!  I bought a similar locket at a recent scrapbookers convention.  Now I may have to go find it and see what I can come up with Smiley
