.5″ 1.5″, found objects

This week is my 15th wedding anniversary, and I looked up the material that’s supposed to be exchanged. It turns out it’s crystal, to represent “pure and sparkling love”.  I appreciate that this year’s sparkle is supposed to come from glass, not from a precious stone or metal.  And goodness knows I love working with lead and glass, so leaded crystal should be a shoe-in.  But what I found for the pendant is even simpler cut glass.  Costume jewelry is more my style, so this is a costume jewelry nod to our anniversary and a recognition that sparkle doesn’t have to come with a high price!
