Today is the reveal for MiShel Designs' pearl challenge. We were tasked with making something (It didn't have to be jewelry!) from pearls. It could be made from freshwater pearls or glass pearls, just had to be a any type of pearl. I have done a couple of pearl challenges already this year and was ready for another one.
I used the pearls that are in the mid and lower right of the picture to make my item.
I used three of the flat pearls and 12 of the round pearls to make a bracelet. I added copper seed beads to pick up on the copper sheen on the pearls. I used a fold-over clasp in copper and added two of the round pearls on head pins to the clasp in order to weight it down so it won't turn.
I took the picture below on a necklace form so that you can get an idea of the full size of the bracelet.
I think the picture below shows the sheen on the pearls. What do you think?
I also did some pearl earrings.
I had some gold pearls left from an earlier challenge and combined them with some gold twisted ovals.
I had other gold pearls and combined them with some clear cathedral beads.
