Last week, I took time to create some finished jewelry from the pewter components and my hand dyed costume pearls.
It's been a while since I sat down with the beads and jewelry pliers and made finished jewelry.
These costume pearls were my attempt to create dark, blue-black colored costume pearls. There were some small diameter, some slightly larger, and one that's a teardrop shape. I dyed them a while back in the Missouri studio. I haven't set up the dyebaths in the new studio here yet. One more thing I need to get done.
The acrylic bicone beads I used for an accent were also dyed, right along with the costume pearls.
This necklace has found a home already, which makes me very happy. I often wonder whether, if I create wearable jewelry instead of components only, will they find someone who wants to wear them?
This necklace did! And that's a special excitement for me.
