About this design:

I had many (rough) looking pearls just sitting around for months and months! I decided to make a pearl necklace that was not ladylike! The toggle can be worn in the front or in the back.

Components:

assorted fresh water pearls, tiny mixed gemstones, sterling clasp

    Looks good to me! The pearls have character and I especially like the way you used the tiny dots of color between them. :)

    Thank you, I thought the 2 mm gemstone rounds would help make it more versatile.

    Somehow missed this one, but what a great design. Irregular and baroque pearls are my favorite. Love the tiny colored gemstones in between!
