And when I was finished working on those, I was still in a very wedding-jewelryish mood, so I made these two as bridal pieces for yet unidentified brides. Are you one of those brides? If so, leave me a comment!
Here, I've suspended a large and very sparkly rectangular chandelier crystal, like one gigantic emerald-cut diamond, from a hand-knotted vintage strand of faux Japanese pearls with a really gorgeous ivory lustre. If I were going to get married again, I might very well wear this one.
And this one is composed of extra-large faux pearls (glass, so they have a really nice weight) and a couple of layered vintage brass flowers and a little freshwater pearl for the center. Classic, but updated with a little well-placed asymmetry.
Closes with a vintage faux pearl clasp.
