I made this necklace yesterday while waiting for the plumber.  Things go incredibly fast when you want the "random" look.  This is the first piece of jewelry I've made in years.  I tucked all my beads away after my daughter was born thinking "Ack, choking hazard, small pieces!"  But I just had an urge to bead yesterday.  That and I needed a necklace to wear to my best friend's wedding this weekend. 

I used four varieties of freshwater pearls, garnet, citrine, and peridot.  It's strung on silk thread and all the findings are sterling.  Let me know what you think!

This is great. It would not have had the same effect without those creamy potato pearls being so much larger than the rest of the stones. Or did you use two pearls stacked on top of each other. Anyway, it is very nice, and I bet you get tons of compliments on it.

Thanks!!!

Yeah, they are potato shaped pearls.  Some of them are almost figure 8 shaped.  A very odd little pearl, but I really like the color and the way they offset the rest of the beads.  Just more visual interest, I think.

That necklace is gorgeous. The colors really compliment each other and have a very earthy, late spring/early summer feel!  So so pretty.

Why do some people think being a parent is only something to do when it is convenient for you?
