Spilled Tea and Undiscovered Dreams

Just a little about my most popular item from the last few days: This beauty brings together multiple vintage necklaces from New York, San Francisco and Portland. The tawny and white pearls and golden tones remind me of romantic tea stains and daydreaming on the sun porch on a rainy day.
