What size are all those little gemstones, I can't figure out how you fit so many on there LOL I'm so impatient that I think I'd throw it across the room before I managed to attach 6 of them. I love both of them, but them I am a HUGE fan of your earrings! (I'm quite sure that if I ever screwed up the courage to try that style I'd end up with a pearl that looked like it had dreadlocks poking out of its little head) Gorgeous!
Thanks very much everyone! I'm a bit beaded/knotted out at the moment getting these last 5 pieces out of the way (two 50inchers in the other thread) .. but I just got some nice big smokey quartz in today..so I'm hoping for a bolt of inspiration...
The recovery is moving along...I'm on a cane now so its a bit easier on the skirting boards than the walker was...I think I need a painter in to touch up a few bits.
Does anyone mind me doing a plug for beadersand artisans on another platform? Here are some pearl designs that I have acquired from/ on Etsy in the last one year.
From bottom left (clockwise):
~ I am loving this wire crochet pair studded with saltwater keshis that Claire Pearse did for me with gems (scapolite and quartz).
~ A two-tone metallic pair made with my favourite gemstone materials (welo opal, rainbow moonstone, saltwater keshis and flameballs).
~ A moorish vermeil pair of hoops with lovely wire-strung rice pearls from Fig Istanbul.
~ A CZ plated snowflake pair with a dewdrop of gemmy moonstone and drop pearls. Pearls are mine but findings are from one of the many South Korean sellers on Etsy (can't remember which).
since this thread is about 'showing off' some of you may have noticed that we started with a new collection, finally after so many years actually.
It took us a very long time after the burglary, from which all of our stock and beauties got stolen, to get back on the ground, plus the high gold price made it extremely difficult not only for us, to get a good selection together.
Last week we started to list the first of MANY new pieces.
Sven, I have seen all of your pieces and I love every single one of them. My favorite material is high karat gold (as several people know by now ) and I just wish I had enough money to buy even one of your creations. I hope they will be torn from the shelf though it will make me sad not to be able to browse them once they're sold.
