The vintage key, Rosy says, was found in a very old house that has been in her mom’s family for about a century. The house was built around 1890.
The beautiful tiny shell (tan-far right) was picked up in faro beach on a trip to Portugal. She shared memories of perfect weather and a beautiful sunset.
And of course my favorite is the handmade tortoise charm (which by the way reminds me of a recent trip to mexico where we released baby turtles)
Rosy says, “She picked up the charm in the magical city of Zacatecas, Mexico located in the north, so full of art, it is especially famous for all the silver and gold mines. The most famous one is “Centro platero” a small artisan community located in an old hacienda. It’s handmade with a technique called “cera perdida” (lost wax).
I look forward to putting something special together with the wonderful items. The beads are unusual shapes and are quite tempting to play with. Thank you Rosy, my new friend from Mexico! You can see the beads I sent Rosy on her blog.
