One more blue for the weekend. I found these blue freshwater pearls and wanted to make a three strand necklace. Multi-strand necklaces are always somewhat of a challenge as getting them to lay properly on the neck can be tricky, especially if you're trying to get all of them to lay properly and touch each other without uneven distances between strands. Instead of connecting them to a triple-clasp, I decided to use these vintage findings I purchased on Etsy.com. They were from harvested vintage jewelry, and are gold plated, not solid gold. I did connect them to a solid gold clasp. Like the RW&B necklace above, the pivot nature of the three piece connector to the single clasp allows for some movement, keeping the 3 strands aligned perfectly. This too is one of my favorite blue necklaces (guess you can tell I have a lot of "favorite necklaces"), as it matches so many lovely shades of blue clothing. Looking more steely-gray in this photo, these pearls are really more blue than gray.
