Shelly's Teal Necklace in the works?


About this design:

The piece with the Stormy blue keshi pearls and vanilla pearls with silver accents that is on the left side is what I am trying to decide what to do with. I really like this but I am not sure my friend would see the value. Shantel's amythest is on the right of the picture it is designed the way I designed my friend Sherry's Christmas present. I think she wants them all the same. What to do this is so pretty the pearls and silver. May send her a picture. No clasp as is not done yet?

Components:

Stormy Blue Keshi pearls, Vanilla pearls, silver spacer beads.

    Woops the necklace on the left in this picture is the one I created for my future (??) Daughter in law. I’ll create a space for that one alone later. It is amythest pearls and gold spacer beads and gold lobster clasp. I made bracelet the same so she could add it to the necklace and make the choker style into a longer necklace.

    The amythest bracelet has to be made shorter as it is 8 1/4 inches. Way to big for this girl I made it for.

    Beautiful they way they are actually. I would wear any and all of them (well, that is, after you attach the clasp!) They are very stunning in the pics and I’m sure the pics don’t do them justice.

    Thank you EA Beth, Stormy Deb, Linda Kitty MOM, Arja, and Lorrie. I am happy if I were the person wearing them. I just don’t feel the passion I feel when I look at everyone’s creations. I’ll get better with time. I guess I am just not daring with my design. I tend to buy smaller stones and end up with jewelry that is smaller looking and sort of over the counter like I sold for years. Now I think why would someone else want to buy it this way? Kind of a confusing analogy. Well you know what I mean.

    Turns out good thing I made the bracelet. Future daughter in law is on the heavy side and cannot wear a choker so glad she can add the bracelet for now until I can send an extender. That was a big boo boo on Mom’s part.

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Well that was confusing the amythest, with champagne pearls and gold was for new daughter in law to be. The other one for Shelly is probably going into 2 pieces or what ever. Any how I’m sorry thought I might clarify that mess incase anyone checks into it.
