Years ago, a grade school friend gave me a pendant with a pearl and a dogwood flower.

I still have it, it was gold and had a short pretty little chain.

I love dogwood flowers, the pink and the white.

They always remind me of the springtime.

So this is a sentimental flower pendant, with a hole at the top and one at the bottom, for a jump ring or wire wrap bead for a chain or a dangle.

Here in the midwest the ornamental pear trees bloom with their white petals, then drop them when the winds blow them like snow.

The oval faux pearl reminds me of the white petals.

A pretty, sentimental charm drop.

Dogwood flowers are so delicate and you've really captured their beauty in the pewter.

One spring long ago I went through the Great Smoky Mountains when the dogwood were in bloom, they're so lovely.

We've had storms here the last couple of days that have blown off most of the remaining redbud and white pear blossoms.

I still have my girlhood friend's gift, I keep it in a special jewelry box. This pendant wasn't cast from that one because it has a half-drill pearl right in the center of it. I made this one to resemble that one ... oh, spring!

Spring, indeed! I always await the Dogwoods. There is nothing prettier than the dogwood blossoms under a canopy of larger trees. They remind me of my father. Some of the last words he ever spoke to me were "No Winter Lasts Forever, No Spring Fails to Appear." I love the dogwood charm.

Karen, I love that saying, thanks so much for sharing it and the memory. I will tuck it away in my quotations book so I don't forget it ...

Thank you, Sue - I promise I won't hoard those beautiful ecru beads you made - wouldn't they look pretty with a dogwood charm dangle - I think so!
