Freshwater Peacock Pearls and Silver Squareknot Chain
There's still more to do in there later - when she's not here it's my "photo studio" so I had to fold up my light box and put away all the accoutrements. My daughter is visiting because she, Glenn and I are going to go see the last Harry Potter movie together tomorrow morning...even have our Gryffindor scarves!
As a reward for my hard work I decided to take a break and post my latest work in progress. So far it's just the chain and pearls. Not sure if I should try to do more.
The pearls were ordered a long time ago from FireMountain and many of them had double drill holes, so adding to the tedium was sorting through the bin for good ones. I do love the colors, though. It's hard to tell in the picture, but they range from a blue-grey to silvery lavender and are slightly iridescent.
I'm now working on some commissions for friends I worked with who raided my lanyard stock before my last day, as well as a gunmetal and Swarovski pearls & crystals bracelet. I'll be ready to show that to you soon, so do come back!
