Photos of some the goodies I brought back from Prague. I was lucky to hit an antique fair in Prague that happens twice a year - good timing! In the background of the photo above is the booklet from the Mucha museum I checked out in Prague.

The other photo has some amazing old chain links I found in a random box in an antique store. I turned them into some lovely necklaces!

Here's my original blog post:

    beautiful - would love to see some of the pendants up close - particularly the photo locket and one with three hearts. I'm sure some folks on here would have helpful info about dating them!

    Thanks for your comments! Here's a link to the two photo pendants. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=432998164706&set=a.270280849706.140538.270225184706&type=3&theater
    They appeared to be magazine photos placed inside, and the antiques dealer dated them to early 1900 -1920s. They were both double sided - not lockets, but rather they had a tiny screw and clear plastic domes to protect the images. Dying to get back to Prague!
