Emerald Delight


About this design:

Emerald and pearl necklace for a dressy evening with matching earrings. I found this strand of faceted rough emerlds, and just fell in love. I knew I wanted pearls with them. I sold it at our show this weekend, to a lady who always wanted some emeralds...her birthstone.

Components:

Faceted rough emeralds, white FW pearls, czech beads (greenish-blue), silver tone clasp with swarovski crystals.

    Absolutely stunning, Harriet!!! :D I have a May birthday, also, and I’ve been wanting to make myself a necklace…I just might have to snitch your inspiring design! ;)

    Thanks, Deb. I did a little different take on this for the one I kept for myself. I tell my customers that every design is an original so no two are ever quite alike. ;) I will try to post a pic of my own necklace soon, so you can see it. I made it just slightly more casual in mood, because that fits my own style. Then you can choose which one you like best. :-)

    Thank you ladies. I wish my pictures did a better job of showing the glow of the emeralds when the light hits them.

    Debra, thank you. :D
    I bought the only available strand from my LBS. I hoped they would get more, but the owner said it was a one-time deal.

    Could you tell us how much did you sell the set for? It is so pretty and I can imagine kind of expensive.

  21. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Laura, I probably underpriced the set. I sold it for $35. I decided it was a fair mark up and would -hopefully- sell at that price. I included the earrings and sold it as a set. Sometimes I price things separately, but I wanted this to go together. :-)
