“Garnets Love Copper & Pearls”


Description from Deb Harding: So I have a large strand of garnet chips...had them for a long time. I also have a long strand of freshwater pearls. I've had no inspiration for them in years. Then I saw this gorgeous necklace with garnets, pearls and COPPER. Well that was different! So I've got some little copper leaves and beads and I'm just kicking around some ideas. I don't want to copy that necklace. It had a large copper heart and only white pearls. I'm thinking maybe more botanical themed with the garnet butterflies as dangles (don't have them so maybe not). If I get it done I will post photos.

    Do it, Deb! I can’t wait to see the finished product, ’cause this is one gorgeous combination you’ve come up with. :-D
    I’ve always thought of silver with garnet and white pearls, but copper! What an awesome alternative! (Wish I’d thought of it.) ;-) Fav!

    Thank you Becky, Julie and Jolene.

    Julie…had the babies at the vet today. Every cat in my house caught this cold and momma Precious and the babies got it. Poor babies had to get a fluid injection. Every cat in my house is now on clavamox. Anyway I did get vet confirmation that they are boys. I know you want girls so….. :(

    Eeka Mouse I know I know. Her stuff is just stunning. She also makes the copper pieces for her jewelry.
    There’s another blog, ornamental typepad I think, where she does some really unique jewelry.
