I just had to share this gorgeous necklace today. Nancy from All Pulped Out was one of the participants in the "One World One Heart" blog giveaway event and this is what she sent me. I didn't enter very many, but I really had my eye on Nancy's piece so receiving this involved a big time happy dance and celebration. When I'm not wearing it, it hangs in my studio for inspiration. She told me that she hammers the metal by hand to get her signature look. It's a lot of work and she can only do a few at a time.
Look at the little pink bead near the middle. It reminds me of a memory. I think maybe a necklace I had of pink stones that had been my mother's when she was a girl, or a bracelet I had of hearts. It's more than the things, though, it's a childhood memory of magic and femininity.
Nancy's website has some more beautiful pieces like this. Look here. She's into several mediums and you can see a variety of them here.
