Summer Pearls

About this design:

The Muddy Spring Mix pearls (-gray) actually. This is probably going to be a replacement necklace to my mother...since she thinks the dragonfly necklace I gave her for mother's day is "too elaborate"...whatever.

Had to do some extra...wire wrapped each pearl. Made wrapped wire connector rings.



14mm Muddy Spring Mix Pearls. Wire. Chain.

    Thanks. I’ve had the 12mm & 14mm. This is the 1st time I’ve used 3 colors together.

    I can’t believe you STILL have some of your Muddy Mix pearls. ;)
    I like the mix of colors. I also like the detail added by the wire wrapping, but it keeps the design simple… like your mom wants.

    I think she will be pleased with this one, but I really liked the dragonfly necklace :D

    Julie I used all the 12mm. So I broke down & bought the 14 but I got them with some discount…

    Regardless of her wanting a simpler design or not…she should never have said what she said. Especially after she looked at things in Heather’s book with me and some other pictures and admired designs like that. It was hurtful. Love my Mom but she can be so picky.

    Fabulous!! Your mom should just have kept her mouth shut. Now YOU get to wear the other fabulous necklace. think of it that way—you ended up with a great gift! It’s soooo cute the way Precious (?) is leaning in to clean a kitty chin! :)

    Thanks Becky. That’s actually BB. He adores the babies.
    I’m actually thinking of setting up a Soldsie shop through Facebook. I would sell that necklace.
