Intermission: Cherry Rainbow Crystal Necklace by Vendome
What caught my eye was the clever fastener made of two leaves and a central flower hook upon which to loop the beaded end. Between the larger faceted aurora borealis beads, are these strands of tiny cherry red beads that lend a vibrant detail.
Although from a distance the double stranded choker struck me as loud and garish, once I saw the meticulous detailing it rather enchanted me. Thanks, Mom, you keep on surprising me!
So called “costume” jewelry, especially of the vintage variety, can be very nice indeed.
