A couple of weeks ago Karla stopped by and was digging through a box of "treasures" I had packed and priced to take to my booth at the antique mall. She picked out a few things to buy- she's a very good customer; but she was especially excited about these clear beads with wire.
I thought they were marbles that someone had wire wrapped. Karla said they were something her Sissy collects and she thought they were called pools of light. I knew if Sissy collected them, they must be something special, because she has very good taste, but they still just looked like wire wrapped marbles to me. Karla bought a small bag of them from me for about three dollars.
What could I say? If I'm going to give a good deal to someone, it might as well be a friend!
Karla made this necklace for me with one of the stones, and some other beautiful gems and added a numbered luggage tag from the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe railroad.
I LOVE the necklace- perfect combination of sparkle and steampunk for me. I think I got the best end of the deal.
I've added some new "handmades" to my Etsy Shop.
