Pearl Shimmer Set

About this design:

I made the necklace in a class in Austin. Just finished this bracelet to go with it. Wore it today with purple, and it looked divine! The pattern for the bracelet is by Laura Boudloche Zeiner.


freshwater pearls, size 8 delicas, Swavorski crystals, Chinorski crystals, and various seed beads. A lovely Swavorski crystal button forms the clasp.

    Yes, definitely hooray for Spring Break! :)
    Went to Austin yesterday and beaded with the ladies I call The Masters. They meet at the lbs Tuesdays and Thursdays to chat and bead. They always have some cool project going on and are always happy (and patient) to teach and help. I go as often as I can in the summer. Had so much fun with them yesterday. Will try to go back again tomorrow despite the expensive gas. :(

    This is incredible! Do you think we could get a close-up picture? Maybe it’s because I stayed up til 3:30 meeting a deadline, but I can’t see it as well as I’d hoped.
