Pearls with an Attitude

About this design:

I love pearls but I wanted to try to use them in a different way other that just stringing them. Added a picture of the back. It's not as heavy as it looks.


6mm to 10mm creamy white and powder blue pearls. 14 and 22 gauge dark annealed steel wire.

    Love the off-center collar effect with this wire frame! Nothing like some steel and pearls to show a little attitude. Would love to see a photo of the closure or how it is put on. Possible??

    No closure. It’s a neck ring. I will take a picture of the back and post it.

    Unbelievable! How unique and cool. You should have a copyright/pattent (whatever you call it) on that,if you dont’ already.
    Looks like something that one would see on Fifth Avenue.
