I woke up with a new-ish idea for some necklaces. What if I used some of my larger gemstone briolettes as pendants and then instead of suspending them from chain like I usually do, did a little pearl linking, then finishing with chain? While I recognize that this isn't an earth shatteringly new design idea, it is an interesting variation on two existing lines of mine. I gave it a try today.
From left to right: labradorite with silvery and peacock pearls, green hydro quartz with pale pink pearls, pink opal with rose colored pearls. The chain is beautiful oval rolo chain. I got a smoking deal on that in Tucson.
I have not yet priced these necklaces, but I think they will be quite reasonable.
I have plans for a few more like these, with large briolettes. Then I think I may do a few with smaller pink tourmaline briolettes with small white pearls. That one will be very elegant!
