This is a very special necklace. The vial pendant contains dried carnation petals from my boyfriend's grandmother's funeral last summer. I dried the flowers, because I'm a little sentimental and I keep a lot of things from significant occasions, even the sad ones.
This necklace is sort of a preservation of her memory, I know the flowers probably wouldn't survive something like moving to a new place. Now a part of them is safe.
The vial contains pink and red carnation petals and two freshwater pearls. I replaced the eyelet screw in the cork with my own version, consisting of a leafy bead cap, pale pink Czech glass bead and wire coil. The cork was dabbed with clear drying glue, to make sure the vial doesn't fall off.
The rest of the necklace consists of 22 gauge color coated copper wire, pink Czech glass, garnet red Czech glass, bronze leafy bead caps and the occasional byzantine knot. Adjustable chain with bead dangle at the end, and a hand made clasp to match.

This won't be for sale, for obvious sentimental value reasons.
