A contemporary artisan pearl design features a bib of 3 strands of white freshwater pearls in graduated sizes. Oxidized sterling beads and hand formed and forged hooks and loops connect the pearls to slip knotted leather for an adjustable wearing length. Necklace can be worn from as short as about 19 1/2" to as long as 26". Pearls add a drop of about 3/4". Necklaces closes with a hook and loop in front for easy on and off.
The pearl focal features white pearls with natural ridges and baroque shapes. The approximate pearl sizes are 8 mm, 6 mm and 4 mm. The 2 mm leather is bound to my design of hoops and hooks with fine oxidized sterling wire. The multi strand focal point of pearls and sterling is about 9 1/2" long.
Perfect for casual, any time pearls worn shorter or longer. Also perfect as a bridal accessory, as part of wedding fashion, as a deluxe gift, or just a contemporary version of a classic white pearl necklace. A statement necklace that is modern and elegant. Many pearl earrings in my shop can coordinate with this necklace.
A limited edition and each necklace is made to order, so it is possible to make some adjustments to lengths, to substitute a different color of leather for black, and to change the metal parts from oxidized sterling to bright sterling silver. Please contact me directly if you're interested in any of these custom changes and a custom listing will be developed for your order.
Comes in my signature box, ready to gift or to enjoy. Because pearls are a natural, variable material and dye lots will vary and I often cannot get more a particular lot. So when they are sold out, that edition is usually complete.
I adore pearls and am often developing new designs, often bib shapes and other inventive necklaces.
