Do girls still chant the mantra "He loves me, he loves me not..." while plucking the petals from a daisy?  The chance that it might give me some insight into a boy's mind was all it took as a young girl to grab a daisy and start letting the petals fly until I got the answer I desired. Fields of wild daisies have been blooming for the past month in our area and it inspired me to think about this piece and how I would design it.  I love the daisy's simplicity of shape.

I designed my latest necklace, He Loves Me, around a ceramic cabachon I purchased from Lisa Peters Art some time ago.  Because of the childhood memory of that silly chant I knew I wanted the white petals to appear to be almost gone, some even still falling.

An antique button with steel-cuts and a daisy motif was the perfect clasp along with a hammered steel hook.

Pops of yellow gold throughout...

I love those yellow beads, they add the perfect amount of color! And yes, I think the chant is still working its magic today, sometimes I even find myself whispering it... ;)
