mermaid's treasure

My state fair entry necklace is finished except for a mermaid charm which I still haven't decided on, and which will be hung next to the clasp at the back of the necklace. It's called "mermaid's treasure" for rather obvious reasons.

Here's the pendant. It strung very well and hangs beautifully. It's quite heavy.

And the clasp, which I also made, along with the shell shaped bead cones. I'm pretty happy with this as a first attempt at molded PMC pieces.

I haven't done a Friday cat blog for awhile, so here's Dylan mimicing Romeo, asleep as usual.

This weekend my highschool classmates and I are gathering for our 30 year reunion. Yikes. I have gone to reunions in the past and always enjoy them a lot, but have trepidation beforehand. This evening a group of my old girlfriends from the dim past are getting together for dinner. Some still live here, others have traveled significant distances. It will be good to see everyone, and it will be just like sitting at the school lunch table except that the food will be better!
Have a great Friday everyone.

Hi Susan - you should feel really really pleased with the necklace - it is just gorgeous! Enjoy the reunion too (I have only been to one and it was nearly two decades ago I think so it would be too much of a shock to the system now I expect!). The wedding photos (and those bows!) were lovely too. Cheers,

What a gorgeous necklace,I love the clasp.

I think reunions are great fun, especially trying to recognise people you haven't seen for nearly 30 years!
