Remember this old rhyme? 😉

“What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice,
And everything nice,
That’s what little girls are made of”

That verse was fluttering through my thoughts as I worked on this necklace set. I must say I’m crazy about the pendant – an amazing little treasure by polymer clay artist, Montse of Barcelona Spain. It’s whimsical but also elegant, so finding just the right beads was an interesting challenge.

I decided upon vintage West German and Czech Glass Beads in hues of midnight blue/black, with a spectacular aurora borealis finish. The colors are bright, but still muted enough that they don’t overpower the pendant.


Is this little lady sweet or what? 🙂

And just look at the intricacy of the pendant frame! It truly is a miniature work of art.

  1. I love the colors, they do a great job setting off the pendant. This is a perfect piece to wear with the pretty spring blouses I see everywhere now.

    I hope you are having lovely spring weather. The weather here has been so pretty.

  2. Where in the heck did you find the pendant. Don’t know. But its way cool. The blue crystals are perfectly bringing out the blue in the pendant. Nice piece Crissy.

    Happy sunny day!

  3. It is lovely!!

    Here is another rhyme and it applies to my monkey sometimes, especially around food time!

    There was a little girl,
    Who had a little curl,
    Right in the middle of her forehead.
    When she was good,
    She was very, very good,
    But when she was bad, she was a little minx.

    I change the ending from the traditional because she certainly can be a little minx but I still love her to pieces!

  4. Wow, Crystal, you are making it really easy this week to pop out of reader and over here to comment. Another gorgeous creation. The clay pendant is indeed lovely, and your choice of beads compliment it beautifully. Cheers, Jane

  5. I love the shininess on the beads! The A/B swarovski crystals are my fav… I have an organizer here full of them, but I never get around to making anything. I made my daughter a pair of earrings for a dance and her friends (and teachers) were all shocked that they weren’t store bought (I said to myself, wow, they must not have looked too closely ROFL!)

    I love the frame too, it’s like zebra print 🙂

  6. That little lady is so sweet. I love it. It reminds me of a baby picture of my mother-in-law taken many years ago. I love Vintage pictures.

  7. I’d say the little girl is Not Nice ,because she’s looking down, like she’s guilty of doing something bad. I never could look my Mom in the eye when I told a lie.
    I love the earrings!

  8. I love it! Of course, I keep staring at the earrings…I love how you put 2 bicones at the top, never would have thought of that! Your sense of harmony is just impeccable!

  9. Wow!! That is so pretty. I wish I had even a bit of your talent when it comes to making jewellery. The beads are just gorgeous and a great colour.

  10. What a gorgeous set of jewelry! I can just see the beads reflecting the sunlight…..Cindi

  11. I love that gorgeous pendant, and how you designed your set around it. It’s just perfect! Those beads are just beautiful!!! xoxo

  12. I am reminded of the old saying, “May your sons be many and strong and ugly, and your daughters few and beautiful”.

    And the reprise, “May your daughters be many and strong and lovely and don’t bother with the sons at all…”, said no doubt by a mother of too many sons!;)
