As with many artistic endeavors I find myself on, stringing pearls has begun yet another interesting path. Who said you can only string pearls?
The pearl strand on the left is where I would cut the knots and take each pearl off to put the pearls on the new strand on the right to make my Mother's Pearls, the contemporary strand. Then I felt it was time to string other beautiful beads.....
This is a bracelet I made using a larger size silk cord and Dark Chocolate Orchid Shell beads (their actual name!) They are a beautifully chocolate brown! I placed a small charm, by the clasp, with other shell beads on steel wire to give it a finishing touch.
Using the larger size silk cord again, I made this bracelet using tri-rectangle shell beads, as they are called. Very pretty shell beads with depth and layering in each bead. I also added a charm of other grey shell beads and an orchid shell bead on steel wire, by the clasp.
This was quite a fun bracelet to make using beautifully colored beads! Once again using the larger silk cord and yellow turquoise, glass and ceramic beads adding them randomly to make what I titled a "cocktail bracelet"! The sterling silver square clasp and button charm also make it such a unique piece.
Finally, some new listings on my etsy site!
stringing and knotting my heart out on this artist holiday-
