thomas sabo bronco pendant.


I bought this yesterday from a mall in Auckland, but I’ve been eyeing it up for months. Yesterday, we headed to one mall to do our boxing day shopping and I did pretty well. The boyfriend was disappointed that he didn’t get anything, though, so I suggested we call in at another mall on the way home and buy him some board games with his Christmas moneys. He liked the idea, so we did.

The jeweller there had a sale on – everything on display was half price for one day only. And as luck would have it, this beautiful pendant was on display. I bought it.

I come from a rodeo family, and I suppose that’s why this pendant appealed to me. Apart from that, though, it’s extraordinarily detailed and satisfyingly heavy. Sterling silver, like all of the Thomas Sabo pieces.


The Thomas Sabo website:

vintage fan pendant.

For my first entry in periodical pretty, I thought I’d photograph my current favourite necklace.

It’s vintage, it’s a fan, and it’s beautiful. It’s imperfect, and that’s half the reason I love it so much.

It came on a different chain to this one, but that’s currently at the jeweller’s being fixed and reinforced. This particular chain has been usurped from another, less loved pendant.

This was sent to me from friends in the Faroe Islands, much loved and much missed.

Does anybody know what the name is for the way it was made? I remember doing similar things when I was a child. You’d fill template frames with beads and then melt them in the oven into these lovely glassy window-hangings.
