Secrets and Romance Locket Necklace

This is one of my latest designs from my Etsy store, I really love how it turned out. This is truly my very favourite locket from my stash, I adore it and have finally made a design worthy of it to hang from! I wasn't sure if the design would work as I am extremely fussy with having things look just right, but when I put it together, I saw just how beautifully all the different colours and components pulled together to create a really lovely romantic design.

Here is the link to the instore listing to see more views, the price and a full description of all the components used to make it:
The necklace is modeled on the gorgeous mannequin that I bought from another Etsy seller and Twitter friend CrochetGal.

Let me know what you think of my newest design!!

My Second Blog Award!!

Sorry for neglecting my blogging lately, but I have been suffering from a really bad dose of the flu, which I cannot seem to shake, I have had it for over 2 weeks now. Because I am taking painkiller/muscle relaxants for my injured jaw, I can't even take cold and flu tablets, as they will react with them, so I am really suffering at the moment.

When I got on the computer this morning, I found an email from my Etsy friend Lisa - telling me that one of my necklaces was on the FRONT PAGE of Etsy!!! WOW, what a fantastic way to start the day!!! My necklace got 150+ views, 11 extra hearts and my shop got 15 new hearts, all from 1 hour on the front page!

(In case you can't see it, my necklace is in the middle of the bottom row, it is the pink and antique copper heart locket necklace.) Here's the treasury that made it to the front page, the curator of this is a member of SATEAM, THANK YOU for picking my necklace to go in it! Well done to you, I bet you are so thrilled that your gorgeous treasury made it to the front page!
