Harry Potter and Snow

The idea for this necklace came from here.
My son found this on the net and thought I might like to make it and send to a friend who loves HP. I found the wings on Etsy and the other components all came from my local bead shop and or my beading stash. The wings are nice quality and not real silver but the rest of it is. I wore this to church today and not a single person knew what this was. In case you don't know it's the golden snitch in the Harry Potter books in which I have read each one. 
Ice in the bay
 The dog pen almost full now

We're at present in a melt down with warmer temps and some rain on the snow, going to be messy and icy.

Knew it immediately. My husband listened to the books on audio while going back and forth to work. Both boys ate the books up one by one. Miss Claire and I loved the movies. You did a bang up job there. I love it on the black. There are plenty of mountains right there in your own yard for the boys...smiles...Renee

The Golden Snitch - Wow! We had so much fun standing in line just before midnight those years when the HP books came out - makes me feel like re-reading all the books :)

What a wonderful idea for a necklace, Nan--it turned out wonderfully! Of course I knew what it was immediately--perfect!

Brrrrrr! I just got a chill looking at all your snowy, cold photos! I'm glad you're warming up a little--hope it doesn't get TOO sloshy!

Wishing you a beautiful, cozy day, dear friend!

A lovely necklace, makes it more special that it was inspired by a beloved book.

Is that your house? Do you live on the bay? It's gorgeous! Is that your boat? Do you go out in the summer...what a life! It's just beautiful there!
