St. Patrick's Day Charming Necklace

I decided to create a (green) necklace to wear on St. Patrick's Day to keep from getting pinched.  So I hunted through my collection of vintage jewelry and found this pendant that was missing the jewel.  It's two inches tall by one and a half inches wide.  Perfect.  I used Glossy Accents to adhere fine green glitter along the inside edge of the pendant, then fine white glitter in the center.  Meanwhile that dried, I made a very tiny label on my PC and used clear tape to attach it to a very tiny glass vial.  Which I then filled with fine green glitter (Lucky Dust) and sealed with a cork.  Then I applied a couple of drops of gel superglue onto the back of the vial and set it onto the center of the pendant.  I love using the gel (as opposed to liquid) superglue because it doesn't run and it sets instantly.  After that was all done, I went back into the vintage jewelry, pulled out a couple of  green beaded necklaces, took them apart and created one that matches perfectly!   So, there it is.  A very charming necklace, perfect to wear on St. Patrick's Day!! 
After St. Patrick's Day, I think I will remove that label and replace it with one for Halloween, one that will say something like....."Eye of Newt Powder" or "Magic Spell dust" or something a little more spooky!  
Yay!  I love it!!!
