Simply Pearls & Tourmaline

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? That I made the pearls "the stars" of this necklace. My goal was to "frame" them with the tourmaline and gold spacers to point-up their beauty and not distract attention from them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sometimes less is more, especially with really nice beads. If you find some really lovely stones, let them stand on their own as much as possible.

What you will need

  • Cultured Fresh Water Biwa Pearls
  • multi-color Tourmaline rondelles
  • 2.5 mm gold-filled rounds
  • gold-filled extender chain
  • lobster clasp and earring findings. Beadalon beading wire.
