    Thank you, both :) . I tried to accommodate to her taste, but got a little bit “playful” with earrings :)

    I firmly believe that every young girl should be gifted a pearl necklace at some point in her young life, but it doesn’t have to be the plain white pearls of my generation. This is a lovely take on the tradition, and I’m sure your niece will be pulling out this necklace to wear for years to come. I made a pink set for my daughter in Feb. for her 21st, which I must find the picture of and post.

    Thank you, Nancy! :) It is for my older grand daughter Yana. I did make a pearl necklace for her before , on her 14th birthday: peach pearls and peredots but her mother like it more then Yana so my daughter in law ended up with it. I guess, it is time and age ;) I also gave the natural peach pearls to our middle grand daughter and she loves it !. The baby will have to wait a little :)
