Vintage Pendant

One of my yahoo groups, ArtHaven, has a monthly lottery.  A theme is selected and everyone is free to submit anything they like in that theme. The theme for November is "vintage."  Many people create cards, which is what I've done in the past, but this time I decided to do a vintage piece of jewelry.

Almost everything I used is from Tim Holtz's idea-ology line.  The base is an ornate plate and the flowers are from the foliage set.  Some are colored with alcohol inks, and then I added some pearls.  It reminds me of some of the nice costume jewelry pieces my mother used to collect.  
Hey, maybe my name will be picked for the lottery and I'll get to keep it, LOL!

Hello Eileen,
