These are beautiful, Renate! I love your jewelry! And I'm glad to be able to read your blog again after my time away. I missed you!! You have received some wonderful goodies in the mail, haven't you? And that pouch you made for your woodland jewelry is perfect! Looks like you've been a very busy woman!! Hugs, Silke

These are both such gorgeous works of art. The second one is my favorite. The lady in the pendant almost looks ghost like and haunting. Wonderful!

Both are lovely necklaces. I especially like the pearl "Joy" I love anything with pearls and old buttons. I also love the word joy it would make me happy to wear it around my neck.

Both are gorgeous Renate, but each one is so different of the other. Love the way you combined buttons and opalite, the same reflects on them. Love the idea of the portrait and all the components in the second.

I love them both, but I adore the mother of pearl buttons on the first one! My grandmother used to have bags and bags of antique buttons stored in a trunk in her basement. Sigh. I would happily send some your way. But I guess there's lots of buttons in the world... Beautiful, Renate.

Hermanita,

I love the way you have created your own signature resin designs with the mother of pearl frames!! Soooo ethereal and enchanting!! And how fun the Medieval piece is. It would look great with a pair of tweed pants with suspenders you know a bit of feminine charm to a masculine outfit. :)

Renate ...that creative energy is flowing...just look at your new necklaces!!! They are both amazing. I have to say the Medieval Woman pieces is my favorite because I just love the colors...is it brass wire? It has wirework, pearls, a gorgeous focal and sparkles...the makings of a knock-out necklace!
