I wanted to post a picture of my stacks of supplies and ask what may I make for you? And then I realize I can't get a decent shot to share as I have my photo taking board with mail and a jewelry stand on it and my lampshade I'm standing next to is stained. So, instead I'm sharing the beautiful pearl necklace I created a few months back.
Here's my etsy product description
Created with love...
Stunning white pearl statement necklace featuring two inch long gold leaves, 10mm pearls and stick pearls. The center is a pearl that while hung upside down does actually resemble a heart. It is capped with bali 14kt gold and from it hangs fine 14 kt gold chain and two pearls that measure about 4 to 5 mm.
The closure is a 14 kt gold flower that has been wire wrapped to the necklace for security with 14 kt gold filled wire. No plated gold was used in this design with the exception being the leaves which could be plated ~they were taken off a pair of earrings and are stamped on the back "KJL" China.
The necklace measures just under 18 1/2" long. The fine gold chain that hangs in the center measures about two inches, the pearl above measures about 3/4 inches long and 1/2 inch wide.
One of a kind. Beautiful, elegant and unique. Wear with pride and confidence on your special day. The last picture is the necklace shown before the pearls were added to the chain so you can see how it lays on the neck..
These are "real" pearls, not glass or south sea shell pearls. Thank you for looking and happy day :)
Here is a close up of the beautiful gold flower closure.
The listing has since expired and I probably need to relist it with a little tweaking on the SEO.
It's funny how we live with our creative mess all around us and we don't notice until we try and take a photo we wish to share with the world...maybe next time.
