For Mom's 85th

About this design:

This simple pearl strand and post earring set is for my Mom's 85th birthday tomorrow. She mentioned a while back that she would like a strand of pearls. WahLa!!! Birthday gift! These are pale pink cultured South Sea pearls 7-8mm with LB hammered GP cones and magnetic clasp (she now prefers the magnetic clasps). Mom doesn't care for dangle earrings, so I made these on perforated disks using pink seed beads and Swarovski bicones and a one of the pearls. Happy Birthday Mom!!!


South Sea cultured pearls 7-8mm, LB GP hammered cones, GP perforated disc and post back 12mm, seed beads 11mm, Swarovski bicones 4mm, GP magnetic clasp
