The joy of pearls seems to never diminish. I can think of dozens of things to do with pearls. And ways to undo them.
Take this long knotted pearl necklace. The large-hole pearls are tinted gray. When I made the necklace with its self-looping clasp, I was intrigued. No longer.
I’m over it. Replacement: a bracelet. A double wrap adds to its importance.
Long necklaces are in, though. I played with different colors and got this collection of five:
Wow. I loved the resin treatment with dangles. What fun. Another experiment formed immediately, this one using a different face and yet more pearls. Meanwhile, my art side went wildly creative: painting the face, decorating the bezel.
The resin process takes a bit of time. While I waited for my new pour to set, I wondered, “What about a long necklace of a different green?”
How would bronze and gold pearls look? Could I use a little bit of pearl chain for fun?
I finally made myself quit. All pearled out for this session.
What’s your favorite pearl to play with?
