Waterfall of Pearls


About this design:

I'm not really sure what inspired this design, it just sort of happened as I went along. It's for sale in my collection on my website, and I actually wore the necklace to church today. The feedback was awesome on this design. The clasp in the front adds so much to this design. Hope this gives you fabulous designers some new ideas!

Components:

Scroll link chain, linking wire, freshwater pearls, flower toggle clasp, split rings, toggle clasp for bracelet and earwires for earrings.

    Very beautiful, nice job. I’ve always liked the clasp in front look especialy when you find a unique clasp. Why always wear it in the back, why not show it off also. Into my fav’s it goes.

    Very distinctive!! I also luv a beautiful clasp in the front, I’m actually working on a pearl necklace with a clasp on the front, so much easier to tie on too ;)

    Gorgeous necklace design! Love the colors, the asymmetry, and the clasp in front! I often put beautiful clasps in front or on the side to let them shine! :D Great bracelet and earring, too — hope there is a second one. LOL

    As others have already said, this is an intricately beautiful design. Almost symmetrical in its asymmetry which is a hallmark of a well designed piece. As in your name, taylored.

    As Spiral said, a definite favorite. Thank you.
