The same in other colors...

I found the round mother of pearl beads in pink and green...

Something old with a new twist

So instead of the rectangular mother of pearl beads, I found these circular ones.
I think they loog really nice in this necklace with turquoise crystals in between. 


It took me a while to come up with the designs for the various different asymetrical beads.
I am very pleased to show you these.....
They are the beginning of a new arena for me.

New Idea... what do you think?

Fuschia mother of pearl rectangular bead with matching crystals.
What do you think of this design?

Smoky gray haze

This is such a simple necklace
The rectangle mother of pearls beads are flanked with small freshwater pearls and silver plated spacer beads.  The double strand joins to a single at the back

One strand simplicity

I used this bead previously in a triple strand necklace but its dramatic enough to use alone as well.
Also, I had a comission asking for something bold and red, but not huge (thank you Sarah!)
The red mother of pearl nuggets with black veins are separated by a variety of black and red crystals and glass beads. The black beads are in a variety of shapes from rondel to oval to triangle.

Simple 3 strand

Here is a cream 3 strand Biwa pearl necklace with purple and gray freshwater pearls in between.
Its understated and elegant.

Turquoise with black

I have made this necklace in various colors and each one is as dramatic as the next.
Blue and black veined mother of pearl nuggets matched with black crystals and glass beads in various shape and sizes finished with a toggle clasp.


Purple blister pearls without tail

Here is the classic two strand blister pearl necklace but these pearls do not have the tail.
The purple is royal in color and has beautiful overtones of pink, silver, blue and gray.


And here it is in white...

Same necklace in white...
