    Here is my latest. Apatite and pearl.

    I also made a matching pendant for the first pair of earrings, to be strung on a long strand of matching garnets.. The plan was for a pair of shoulder duster earrings but I ran out of tiny pearls.
    Hmmm, notice a trend? I think I have an excuse to go shopping. By the way, does anyone know of nice and tiny little drop pearls?

    I hope you consider this flattery, Lady D!

          Thank you, Pattye and Charlotta! Yes, the larger pearls are some low quality Tahitian's I purchased about 15 years ago and forgot about. They ended up being perfect for experimenting with

                First time I’m seen this thread and this is such a clever idea! I love tassels, I own one from the brand lagos that’s made of sterling silver and pearls. I bought it a few years back when they first lounged that style. Tassels are a great way to dressed up your outfit, I find myself grabbing for mine every time I’m in a rush and don’t have time to think what matches my outfit.
                You’re all so very talented and inspiring...who knows, I may watch the video and find the courage to play....

                    I am pretty happy with my discovery that cast sea urchin make the cutest tassel caps! Shown with my fancy shiny seafoam Japanese sterling thread.

                                I made another tassel, this time I wirewrapped the pearls onto the loops with hatpins. Nothing to attach it to inside. It is less stiff than one could think. The pearls are tiny 3-4mm lavender rose freshwaters that I bought from Pearllunar on ebay. It's an enhancer so I can use it on both pearls and chains.
