Not Your Mama's Pearls Necklace

About this design:

I love pearls especially in unusual shapes and colors. I got the large orange agate slab pendants from LB and put it with some bronze stick and coin pearls. I added two Bali sterling silver tube beads on either side of the agate and some 4mm Thai silver beads. I love how it's not your usual pearl necklace.


Large orange agate slab pendant focal bead, bronze stick and coin pearls, 4mm Thai silver beads, sterling silver Bali tube beads, sterling silver toggle.

    I want it! I *need* it! :)
    Very unusual and appealing. I have some aventurine sticks in my stash… wonder if they’d work in this pattern. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Thanks for all your wonderful compliments. I am always striving to be unique amongst all the wonderful jewelry designers out there. Glad to help inspire everyone.
    I’d love to see my design done with aventurine sticks or biwa pearls or any number of different materials and focal stones. If you do it be sure to post the picture. I think I’m going to make another one with different stones because I do love the design and it looks really great on.
