Happy Birthday Laura xox

A dear friend of mine is having her 30th Birthday. I wanted to make her something extra special and here is what I came up with ! A stunning OOAK necklace that screams Laura ! Featuring a Victoriana Centerpiece with a sublime Vintage Ornate Glass Cabochon (circa 1960s) accentuated with four opaque jet black vintage glass rhinestone pears (manufactured in the 60's) set in sweet brass settings. I also sent a handmade card with a lovely black ribbon and brass affirmation charm featuring the word Dream. I hope she likes it !
