Here's my contribution: a purple day/night on the town jewelry set
This might give you a better idea of how it will hang when worn:http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c29/atsuko2005/DSC03516a.jpg
Included in the set are:
-a pair of chandelier style earrings, made with Swarovski briolettes, glass beads, and silver-plated findings ...sparkly and perfect for both day and night!
-a necklace, made with Swarovski crystal beads made into flowers, glass beads, and silver-plated findings...a daytime piece
-a HUGE 16mm violet shell pearl necklace with Swarovski crystal accents at the clasp and silver-plated findings...an evening piece
The shell pearl is a modern marvel of technology. It is made from the shell of an oyster so it has a very realistic look for a more affordable price. Also the shell pearl will always keep its shine and color, and will not be affected by sweat, perfume or detergents. They come in a wonderful range of colors too: http://www.ebeadshop.com/shellpearls.html
I hope someone likes this idea of having 2 sets of color coordinated necklaces to make the set more versiltile. Oh, and I can customize the chain length for my partner--it's currently 18". This was fun!
P.S. I love, love, love your hat Kookaloo_Starr!!!
