This necklace was designed around Karen Ovington's lovely pale pink glass heart. She uses soda lime (soft) glass for her remarkable beads, then gives them a matte finish. I embellished the heart with a gourd stitch skirt and hat using vintage pink charlottes. Some people say charlottes are the most beautiful beads of any kind ever made. They are Czech, and fortunately becoming available again for the first time since WWII. The pink and purple ones in this piece old ones, size 13/o. What makes them so marvelous is their deep opaque color and the single polished face that picks up and reflects tiny gleams of brilliant light. I also used vintage satin glass, semi-precious stones and pearls to complete the piece. Note that the extension enables it to be worn at two different lengths.
