    Default Some of my odd pearl creations

    It's cold and gloomy, so decided to sit out in the rain and take photos of some of my slightly less conventional pearl creations.

    The necklace is a combination of freshwater and natural grey baroque akoya pearls with vermeil and rough diamonds. The bat and spider/web pendants are tahitian and south sea pearls with sterling and vermeil.

    These are my goth pearls...

    I just love the necklace - definitely my colour tones, and it is just divine! Do you sell these gorgeous pieces?

    I really don't have a goth bone in my body, but I do love good design, and I think your goth pieces are pretty special too - we have to wear things that express our individuality! Great to see beautiful pearls used in such a unique way..

    Yes, you have some very creative designs. Very nice.

    I do sell some of my pieces, but I'm afraid the necklace would be rather pricey, as those raw diamonds alone were $200 (and a real pain to work with - the tiniest holes imaginable!!!). The adventure was more in the making than the wearing, though I do really love the colors. Feel free to PM me if you would like more information.

    And thanks to you all for your kind comments about my creepy goth pieces!

    I really like the bat pendant, especially how you chose that pearl for the top, reminds me of a moon with cobwebs on it. I love fun jewelry, thanks for making it!

    I particularly enjoy the bat with the pearl. An imaginative use of the tahitian!

    When I look at these photographs, and the others I have seen from the 'Lowly Beaders' I am so envious. I can't imagine the level of skill, patience, and creativity necessary to turn out such beautiful pieces. I looked at that necklace and gasped. I'm no Goth (although I hate to say it, I was when I was 16), and I'm no spring chicken either, but oh what I'd give to wear it.

    I used to be much more of a purist, but I've discovered there's a lot more flexibility when you mix things up a bit...
