In the past few years I have been making myself a little something something for my birthday. The one above is a Nepalese bone inlay pendant with Thai silver, peridot and India glass, also a few Peru ceramic rondelles. I always get compliments when I wear it.
And last year's piece, a Netsuke mermaid, Czech glass presed beads, a little Swarovski, and Japanese seed beads in size 11/0 and 15/0. Delicate but tells the story.
