'Something Old' Pearl Necklace
This picture does not do this justice. I had dirt all over my camera lens and was in such a hurry to get it to my friend that I didn't clean it and try to get a better picture.
This is such a wonderful idea that a mother of a bride came to me with... She had a pearl that her husband had bought her on their honeymoon. She wanted it drilled and put on a necklace for her daughter to wear on her wedding day. I originally had put this on a clear cord so that the pearl would be the focal point of the necklace. The bride wore it on her big day and later returned it to me so make a piece that would be more practical for everyday wear. I put the pearl on a straight pin and looped and coiled it. The bride also wanted it combined with a gold accent disc. I think this turned out really nice. The mom had a great (tear jerking) idea. Love it!
