Vintage Pearls

About this design:

I have had these golden pearl drops in my stash for a LONG time, as well as the blue opals. I had left over chain from my lotus necklace, so I deconstructed the chain and made this piece. I think it has a nice, vintage feel to it!


Gold pearl drops, blue opal ovals, Swarovski crystals, antique copper chain, brass craft wire.

    Susie, this is very nice! I had to laugh when I saw it because I just finished a piece that had a few similarities! We must have some kind of karmic connection! :) I’ll post it as soon as I can find my hubby’s digital camera!

    This is gorgeous! And how inspiring to know the pearls and opals had been in your stash for a long time! Just goes to show why we have a stash. Can’t wait to share with hubby – he says when I buy more beads “but you haven’t used all those you have bought”.
