St. Valentines Day, that venerated holiday of romance will be celebrated this week. Everyone deserves a little adoration. Here are pair of necklaces i custom made for very nice ladies. I met the first woman with a need for some red flowers at a show. The first 3 images are of the composition i created for her. Once that was published, a second customer requested something as much like it as i could manage. Luckily everyone understands that i am unable to make duplicates of anything, as materials available are always changing. Often folks look at these necklaces and remark that their moms or grandmothers had lots of these enamel flower pins in their jewelry boxes. They seem to enjoy the retro-blast and feel nostalgic.

The necklaces are composed mainly from vintage reclaimed red and pink enamel flower pins as well as other little fun beads and small found objects.
