learn how to hang

learn how to hang

I found this beautiful necklace tucked in a case amongst a myriad of lovely old things in an antique store when we were in Annapolis. I was almost afraid to ask the price, because I assumed it would be too expensive. Thank God I did - $10. Say what? Oh and everything in that case was 20% off. Uhh, ok.

Seriously, I had no idea they made costume jewelry this delicate.
