Its pendant features a gorgeous 9.6 carat Herkimer Diamond wrapped in oxidized sterling silver wire. Also included are several types of lampwork beads, cloisonne beads, vintage metal links, vintage plastic and disc beads, and a couple of my own polymer clay beads.
Above is the pendant as received from Fall Hill.
I have mentioned my friend Kim a few times here, and now I invite you to check out her Etsy shop and blog, and pass it on. This is from her 'about' area at Etsy:
"Fall Hill Bead and Gem is a full service bead shop carrying an endless variety of beads and findings, as well as mineral specimens from around the world. We specialize in Herkimer Diamond Jewelry, as well as Herkimer Diamond crystals. We work with many local miners, as well as collect crystals at our private mine to bring you one of a kind Herkimer Diamond specimens, as well as gem grade jewelry crystals and one of a kind jewelry designs."
She's got pictures and stories about gem mining adventures, her and her partner Adam's brick and mortar store in our little town, and more at her blog, Fall Hill Bead & Gem.
So--the giveaway! In about 2 weeks or so, I will fold names/tickets into a bowl, shuffle them around, and have one of my brand new baby rats choose one.
That's right! We now have three baby rats. They are delightful. Mule, Gums, and Snorkel. Mule (in front here) is a dumbo rex, which means he has curly hair and whiskers, and round, side-set ears. They are all completely adorable. And not this tiny anymore--we've had them a month now; we got them a few days after our last elderly, dear, fat, Squiggy died. Anyway....
