First of all, Denise had it wrapped in a beautiful presentation box which she made and she sent a beautiful card along with it:
It was hard to open it up because it was so beautifully done, but I just couldn't wait any longer to see my "prize"! This is what I found when I opened the box:
She used ribbon to tie the necklace to the box to keep it flat. Oh, my, this is even more beautiful than I thought it would be!!
Here's a close up of the...not sure what to call it...charm? brooch?...whatever it's called, it is gorgeous!
Here are some close ups of the additional decorations she used on this necklace and of the ribbons she used.
I think this is the best blog candy that I've ever won!!! Now to find the perfect outfit to wear with this beautiful necklace!! Thank you SO much, Denise, for offering such a prize!!!
