Peace, Love, Bead Bloggers and a GIVEAWAY!!

I did blog about your giveaway! Lovely pendant! Is that a slider that's been wrapped with wire? Looks lovely!

Hi Cathryn! Thanks for mentioning the giveaway and for your nice comment about that little pendant. I wanted to let you know that it is a swarovski component with two strand holes going through it. Looks like I ran an eye pin diagonally through the holes. Here is an old post when I made this.
