Graciousness Matters - New Etsy Listing

My Mama Would Always Tell Her Girls’, “Even When You Don’t Feel Like It, Behave Like A Lady And Be Gracious!” Her Sage Advice Inspired This Newest Piece.

After Hand Cutting A Nice Oval From Silver Sheet I Incorporated Several Components, As Well As The Word: “Gracious” Into The Design. The Central Focal Is An Antique Bridle Rosette. This Rosette Is Authentic – Bought At Auction Some Years Past. I Was Told It Was One Of Two, And Was The First Letter Of A Ranch-Logo. Very Few Identical Pairs Of These Rosettes Can Be Found Today – Finding Them Together As Mirror-Images Is Rare.

To The Upper Portion Of The Pendant, I’ve Soldered A Sterling-Silver Bumble Bee Charm To Symbolize The Word “Be,” and Flanked The Lower Portion Of The Bee With Two Bezel-Cupped Semi-Precious Citrine Stones – And Finished With Carefully Soldering The Rosette Into Place.

I Truly Love This Piece – And Hope Y’all Do Too!
