Inspirations...

Once again Mommy was having a hard time finding inspiration for the latest Artbeads.com blogging challenge theme ‘What’s Old is New Again!“. Angel had an idea and gave her this hint... It took Mommy awhile to figure it out but it finally donned on her and she went digging through her jewelry box and found this pendant...
The idea behind the theme is to take something old or vintage and give it a new twist with modern elements. She used lovely Swarovski pearls and crystals and also chain from Artbeads.com along with her own kitty pendant that she's had since high school (VERY vintage!) and came up with this 30" necklace...Angel had a very good idea!
I have a better idea of how to model it though...
Much better don't ya think?
Once again we saved the day. What'd she do without us!

Have a wonderful day!
Sadie

Angel, great idea and excellent job of letting Mom know what she needed to do. What would she do without your inspiration and Sadie's modeling skills? Bet she was very happy with both of you.
