Birthday Pearls

About this design:

This is what I made for myself for my birthday this year. Now I have to wrap them up and hide them away until May...

(The pearls are actually lighter than they look in the picture - a lovely lavender with peacock highlights and dynamite nacre.)


Baroque FW pearls, sterling silver clasp (that reminds me of a mermaid's pearl-adorned hair waving in the ocean current), seed beads as spacers between the pearls.

    Pearls are a girl’s best friend! (I know, it’s supposed to be diamonds, but pearls are so much warmer!).

    What a great gift to give yourself! Wherever you hide them away, leave yourself a note so you can find them! Such a beautiful set…

    Thanks, everyone. Yeah, it’s a good idea to leave myself a note so I can FIND the hidden necklace on the 12th… now where did I put that note? :|

    So pretty! I am the opposite… I have had my “birthday” aquamarine beads for 2 years now, and have just not been happy with any design I’ve tried yet.
