Pearls and leather lariat

About this design:

Pearls are one of my birth stones, so I have a lot of jewelry with them. I knotted baroque pearls on a light brown leather cord and attached Rose Quartz teardrops to the copper connectors with copper wire. It is 53 3/4 inches long from connector to connector. The drops are 1 1/2 inches long.

Components:

Baroque pearls, leather cord, copper connectors, copper wire, Rose Quartz teardrops

    So pretty. I love the knotted leather and the pearls. At almost 57 inches this lariat can be worn so many ways. Brown leather with the pearls is gorgeous.

    Gorgeous! Love the leather & pearl theme–the wrapped drops on the end are great. How nice that this piece can also double as a belt. Gives me that rustic, elegant vibe. Very nice work! :)

    Thank you ladies! I put the middle pearl at my throat or a little lower and wrap the ends around the back of my neck and then tie the cords in the middle of my chest. I also made a small one with .05mm cord and 3 baroque beads.

    Really nice Bev. I would never have thought of mixing pearls with leather, but it works and looks awesome.

    Leather and pearls are such a great combo. Add the Quartz drops on a lariat design and you have a winner. What a great necklace!
