"Druzy and Pearls"


About this design:

My inspiration for "Druzy and Pearls" were the lovely pale pink cross pearls. I had never seen cross pearls before and I found these at a bead show and fell in love with them. This pink and gray druzy pendant caught my eye at the same show. It has a raised pink center surrounded by sparkles of gray and is wrapped with silver. I really like the color combination of pink and gray and so that was the palate I chose. The design features soft gray druzy agates and pink jade rondelles with flower bead caps. I highlighted with silver filigree beads and a silver flower toggle clasp.

Components:

pink and gray druzy agate pendant, pale pink cross pearls, gray druzy agate rounds, pink jade rondelles, silver beads and bead caps, silver toggle clasp

    amazing! I would have never thought of putting any kind of druzy with pearls, but this works wonderfully! So original…I love it!

    That is a lovely bracelet; I love that pale victorian color. But those cross pearls – is there a chance of hitting them against something and breaking them off? They probably don’t stick out that far, huh?

    Uh-h-h, is it a bracelet or necklace?

    It is a necklace. I have several customers who have bought necklaces with cross pearls and then have not had any trouble with them breaking. I would not use them in a bracelet. When you wear them they do have a three dimensional effect and look stunning.
