Bold Pearl Necklace
Here's a wonderful necklace! I used beautiful blue button pearls with pink and purple potato pearls. In between each pearl is either a tiny 2mm fluorite gemstone bead or a sterling silver bead.
Hanging from this three strand necklace is a mesmerizing fine silver pendant which has been oxidized to bring out the detail and give it that aged look.
The necklace before it’s been twisted measures about 18 ½” (47cm) long plus the pendant which is about 1 ½” (4cm) in diameter. Once it has a few twists, as shown in the picture the length shortens slightly.
