When I want something that I can't afford at the time or something that I don't plan on purchasing right away; I usually save the link and check it out later. Well, I found this necklace on etsy looong ago, and had forgotten it. I found it saved in my archives and decided to do a hunt. I found it relatively quickly. I don't like the chain but I will purchase one that I do like.
I found this necklace at Two Belles and a Bead. All images, are from the website.
