Pollination II

About this design:

You may remember the Pollination II necklace from not too long ago that the customer wanted modified?

She wanted a coordinating bracelet made from memory wire ... and she wanted something pretty dramatic! Just finished it today, so will have to see what she thinks.

Some of the pearls were drilled too small to put on the memory wire, so I wire wrapped them and made them dangles to ensure she had every color of pearl in the original necklace.


See above.

    Thanks Deb and Wenche … she has been known to not like things and want them changed around. And if that happens, then I may have to make another necklace with beads in these colors as everyone really seems to like the combo! SLS

    Amazing colors. I do remember that necklace….
    Lucky that some of the pearls got too small hole, now it looks nice with some pearls coming “out” from memory wire. Funny thing is that right now I am drilling those silly-too-small-holes larger. Quite a work!

    Jewelry by Shannon says:

    Thanks you guys. Yes, Gem Chick, I remember your MOP that you made for your client! And yes, Arja, I too was making the holes larger for a while (funny you are drilling some now) with a bead reamer and decided my time and energy wasn’t worth it based on the final price of the piece, thus the loops!!
