Girls and Pearls


About this design:

I love this blister pearl pendant that I purchased from Lima Beads. This is a result of not liking the original necklace with the rose quartz and the pepper red rice pearls. The green blue stones are Amazonite. I think they pull the greens and blues from the blister pearl. Also, there is no rhyme or reason to the arrangement of the beads, I just put them on however until I was done.

Components:

Blister Pearl pendant, Amazonite rounds, nuggets and chips, Rose Quartz flat ovals and rounds, Pepper Red rice pearls, sterling silver S clasp, lobster claw clasp, rounds, chain, and findings.

    Thank you Betty! The pendant can be worn either way because the back is pretty too…smooth without the blister pearl.
