Who is this project for? Women

What materials did you use? Seed pearls, peridot teardrops, purple washed 12mm glass focal beads, 24ga copper wire, copper earwires

What are you most proud of? That the two pieces actually look alike! I was actually worried about this initially...

What advice would you give someone starting this project? For the central focal bead, choosing a round bead might be better than flattish beads.. Because even if the focal bead decides to rotate a bit, it won't look weird. But if you use flattish beads as the focal bead, if it rotates, then a gap will appear between the bead and the pearl rings, which will kinda look funny... You just need to bear this in mind... Ofcourse if you are using bezel set focal centers, this problem may not happen at all...

I Just love the TWO rings of pearls (I've done 1 never could attempt 2) and especially the spokes or rays of copper wrapping between the pearls. And I wouldn't mind wearing them at all with the middle bead turning sideways! I think it would add even more interest! So, maybe I'm not the only one. :)
