Love everything about this

I love the packaging it came in.  A sweet little handmade pouch made from scraps with some machine stitching. A pin embellished with a bead and seam binding kept it safely closed. 
I love the handwritten note that came rolled up like a scroll and tied with string. A white feather was tucked carefully under the bow.
And inside I found and love this gorgeous handmade necklace made by my very talented and very generous friend, Becky Shander.  This beauty was recently featured in Jewelry Affaire.  Here is a shot from the magazine -
I gushed over all three.  Aren't they beautiful?  I know many of you already know Becky but if you don't, please stop by and say hello here.  Tell her that I sent you.  Becky is a real inspiration to me as an artist. She also is just one of those people that make the world better with her loving spirit and ability to find beauty in the ordinary.  Thank you, Becky. xoxo
