well sir, you certainly succeeded in doing just that! I was quite impressed with what I saw, thanks for sharing.
Thanks to Jeremy I am the proud possessor of a growing set of jewelry featuring them. The pendant and earrings J just made up for me ("pearls for Caitlin" thread) with the bracelet I received at the 2010 ruckus- (photos under ruckus thread) I also have one of the "purloined pearls", though mine was not actually purloined, because I picked it out before the others got purloined. Anyway, I picked an excellent designer at PP and asked her to make it into a ring. I will end up with earrings, pendant, bracelet and ring, all of closely matched colors of metallic pearls. That will be outstanding and also so unique!
I'm a traditionalist and this affects my response to the bracelet. I loved all of the elements. I understand the move to use suede with pearls, since like pearl, suede has visual depth, but I'm not so sure about the combination with the gold links for some reason. She chose the perfect shade of suede for the pearls, too, and obviously has talent.
Maybe it's the combination of rough with dainty? Then I had a thought -what about bigger gold links in the chain with suede threaded through it, like a ribbon? Does anyone have the goods to try that out, or want to?
I'm not implying anything lacking in the design at all, I'm just trying out an idea.
That is such a beautiful photo. I am welling up a bit. The exquisiteness of those pearls in the quality of that photograph are a knock out. I am knocked out.Close-up of bracelet on Pearl Paradise facebook http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/...et=a.370964667005.151438.320057252005&theater, July 21, 2010 wall entry.
