Golden peach necklace

About this design:

This is a new dimension for me, as I have used Hemp cord to thread the pearls and knotted them twice in between. I have also added amethyst, peach toned aventurine and small faceted glass beads with a golden angel and dragonfly ! I added a golden chain to hang around the back of one's neck (as sometimes large pearls are not too comfortable there !)


Hemp cord, peach-toned potatoe pearls, Amethyst, peach-toned Aventurine, carnelian, and cherry quartz with golden charms

    Lovely necklace, love the color of the gemstones that flatter the pearls. Most of the holes in the pearls I have are so teeny-tiny I couldn’t get hemp in or headpins,

    Thank you all ! I thought I was going to have trouble threading at first, but then I very carefully cut the end to make a kind of point, then moistened the end, left it to dry for a while, came back and it had hardened slightly. You could use wax was well. I also have a bead reamer and used this on a few of the pearls, then it was pretty easy !

    Pretty! Pretty! Pretty! Nice knotting too! To thread really fine holed pearls and beads I use Beadalon collapsable eye needles and very fine beading thread such as nymo or silk. Just a hint.

    Michelle, this is so soft and beautiful! Love this mix of gems and colors! :D Hemp is fun to work with — I’ve used it in different colors and degrees of thickness for making macrame jewelry.

    I also like to use silk beading thread that comes wrapped around a card. It comes in a wide variety of colors & sizes, and also has its own attached needle. 8)
