My mother-in-law really liked the Twisted Pearl Necklace (tutorial posted here too) I made in this posting, so I decided to make her a variation of it for her Christmas gift (shhh!). You can essentially use the same tutorial but instead of twisting it, just tie a knot in the middle and voila! Super easy!
And a close-up:
I've been on quite the pearl kick for the last few months but I just can't get enough! I love the femininity of them and how they go with almost every single thing. This one is a triple strand in dove gray. It has larger pearls in the middle and smaller ones on the sides to add focus to the center.
For the closure, I wanted to echo the theme of threes and did 3 chains connected with a clasp.
And part 3 of my pearl craziness is a mix of pearls with chains. I think I just really like the interplay of something delicate with the toughness of chains. This one I made super long to be more dramatic but it is adjustable in the back to make it shorter.
And the requisite close-up :)
It's pretty obvious from this posting that I've got pearls on the brain lately LOL! What's on your mind lately? Anything on your wish lists?
