Do Pearls Sparkle?


About this design:

I think this question was posed in The Glare Beware! blingy challenge.

I don't know. Do they sparkle, or do they shine?

Components:

Large hole pearls, 1mm leather cord, pave bead, button clasp.

    Do pearls sparkle or shine? BOTH! :)
    This is SO cool. Love the leather cord. Gives it a funky elegant vibe.

    Totally love it! I love pearls in an unexpected setting. Where on earth did you get large hole pearls? And what color is that? If you look closely into a pearl there is sparkle.

    Lovely!

    Love this, and yes where did you find the large hole pearls, or did you enlarged the holes yourself with the bead reamer?

    Elis Mom says:

    I love love LOVE pearls! These I got at my local bead shop. They are such an interesting color…not grey, not silver, nor lavender, but a blend…I had a hard time deciding what color leather to use, as each color brought out a different undertone of the pearls! I have a few more strands that I got at a bead show, and a few more from the bead shop. I love pairing them with leather!

  13. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I also love your choice of using leather with the pearls — very edgy! 8)

    Awesome design :D If they sparkle? I think I still think that they shine ;) Might be pearls that sparkle but not all I think :)
