Cords and Pins

I added two new items to our Etsy shop today. This Aluminum Treble Clef Shawl Pin was a special request custom item from a lovely customer last July. I intended to make more and put it in our shop but things got busy and I forgot about it. Last week someone contacted us asking if we still make them. She did a google search and it popped up. Yay for Google! So here it is. The light weight of aluminum makes it especially nice for shawl pins. I buffed down the edges and points so that it doesn't catch on anything.

I also finally got around to adding the Black Satin Cord with Handmade Sterling Silver Clasp as a regular item in our shop. While the simple black cord that is just tied is a nice cheap quick and easy way to provide a simple way to wear our pendants, this gives a nice alternative . The end finding is silver plated. I use a dab of super glue and then fold over the crimps. It seems to hold well and I've been testing it all day.I can make them any length for the same price ($5).
This is one of those things I've been meaning to do for a long time and it's nice to finally get it done!
I'm still working on getting over this cough and cold thing but I see the light at the end of this phlegmy tunnel.

Glad you like it!
We always have the treble clef pendant available in our etsy shop. If you go to the shop and then click on the on the wirework earrings/pendants section you should be able to find it. (just in case you really need to know that:)
I plan on making a sterling slver one soon too.
