Island Jewelry Lost & Found

A pretty mother of pearl pendant from my loving Hubby. 
It was an anniversary gift a few years ago and I've never worn it because I kept waiting to find the right gold chain for it.

The problem is, I'm a silver girl and have to be in the mood for gold and every time I went shopping at the jewelry clearance sales for that perfect chain, I wasn't in the golden mood.

I found my pendant again the other day and thought, this poor thing is going to be sitting in my jewelry box forever! I wished I could wear it. 

So after rummaging through my island jewelry, I found something else I love but never wear. 
A simple long shell lei that never quite looked right on it's own. 
So I put the two together.

Voila! I had to wear it right away :)

And I've gotta say, I LOVE it! Simple, gorgeous island jewelry that I had in my jewelry box all along.
I'm glad I finally figured out they belonged together.

Have you recently rediscovered something that you love?

Can I just say I adore that Jen at Craftomaniac lets us link up TWO projects for her Monday parties? For a chronic crafting mini project doer like myself, it's heaven! Not to mention great motivation!


  1. Very beachy and beautiful, well done! Thanks for linking, Jenn

  2. Thanks for hosting the linky party, Jen!

  3. This is lovely! I will be keeping my eye out for a pendant to put on my string of shells! I'm new to your blog and am looking forward to visiting again soon!

  4. Salt Water Taffy- Tickled that you like it! You know what's sad? I've been trying to find more outfits that I can wear with it :). Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Hope to see you again soon!
