I’ve been making pea pod necklace for a while now using freshwater pearls like this one HERE. However, I thought it might be interesting to make one using birthstones. At first I was unsure what type of gemstone/beads I wanted to go with, some can be very expensive and the sizes and colors will most likely not be consistent. Since I planned on offering this pea pod necklace indefinitely, I really wanted to use beads that I knew would be around for years to come. Hence, come in Swarovski crystals.
I thought I would post one of my latest creations. It’s a flower pendant necklace. I hand formed the daisy using fine silver, fused it and tumbled it forever. I just love the way it turned out! It’s so light and simple! I had a hard time trying to decide how to present it as a necklace with out taking the spotlight away from the daisy. I didn’t want to over do it either with unnecessary bells and whistles. So I just hung it on a sterling silver chain and added a 7mm white freshwater pearl. Enjoy! 🙂
I’ve been working on some new necklaces, because.. well I’ve got a million earrings, I’ve been a little nervous about it, just because, I’m not a necklace making person! But then that was true about earrings! I love to wear them (necklaces) thought! So I thought I would start with pendants and made a cute little peapod necklace using 7mm green freshwater pearls. I also tried 8mm white freshwater pearls I think both turned out very nicely. Check out the green one!
