Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Fantastic! I can see so many personalized possibilities with this piece. I feel a solution to my Christmas gift list being born! Choose the person's favorite color for the pendant. Then add charms that have a special meaning for the person or something special that you two share. Being careful on chain and charms I can even see this possibly working for a male. This necklace can be as individual as the person is unique!

This would be wonderful as a gift for a teen-ager - whimsical and charming, a happy piece.

All of these look fanatic I just make the beginner bracelet and it is great, easy to fellow pictures and instructions. Thank you so much. I have so much to learn. Zada
