I got several of these pendants when they went on sale. I was going to make some Victorian-style earrings and I got both the right- and left-facing versions of this pendant so that the earrings would be symmetrical.
As with most JBB products, the quality is great, however, a word of caution. The antiquing finish was consistent within each left/right version, i.e., all the left facing ones were the same color and all of the right facing ones were the same color. However, the left and right versions were so different in color from each other that I can't use them for the earrings.
If there was color variation within each version, at least I would be able to mix and match similarly colored ones, but alas, I cannot and now I am stuck with a bunch of these and no idea what to do with them.
I realize this is always a risk with antiqued items, but I guess I thought that because they were two versions of the same piece either the manufacturer or Artbeads would ensure consistency for the buyer. My mistake.
Anyway, the quality is great, and if you don't need to match them to the right-handed version, you'll probably love them!
