Gray freshwater pearls cluster as a dense, lovely bib necklace and make a statement mixed with an artisan made silk ribbon. Three cascading strands of lustrous medium gray pearls are linked to silver plated steel hoops with graduated sterling beads with a satin finish that echos the gray pearls. The focal point measures about 10" long from ring to ring and the pearls each measure about 9mm x 7mm. The front center of the bib measures about 1" wide.
The three separate pearl strands are free to move and intermix though weighted to the center and the length can be adjusted from very high to quite low, depending on your neckline and the look that works best for you. The gray ribbon shown is no longer available, and a black handmade silk ribbon is included. Additional colors can be bought here https://www.etsy.com/listing/512339448/extra-silk-ribbons-for-pearl-bib-hand? Or please contact me With special requests.
The ribbon is about 37" long and can be knotted or tied in a bow to adjust the bib depending on the look that you like.
Top drilled, rice shaped pearls, all clustered together, create a gorgeous texture on my original and very popular pearl necklace. The gray color has been a best seller and so has been adjusted over the past year as each small batch of freshwater pearls has sold out and as I've found new pearls and recreated this design. (You can see many earlier versions of the gray pearl bib in the sold section of my studio.)
This design can be dressed up--has been worn at weddings many times--and dressed down, pairing with a shirt and jeans. You may find other colors and variations of my pearl bibs here https://www.etsy.com/shop/WillOaksStudio?section_id=7631294 It's always possible to create coordinated earrings in many styles using the same pearls--if this would suit you; please drop me a note with your request and I'll let you know what I can do for you!
