One of my long-time favorite necklaces is gone to Pennsylvania. The Madagascar, made with a real Thai orchid and freshwater pearls, sold last week and I was happy to shine it and wrap it up nice and snug for my Etsy customer.
I also saw that orchids like these are for sale at Free People. They cost $20 less than mine, only they are strung willy-nilly on a plain cord. Bright and colorful, but a little boring!
