Designs by Jill
The inspiration for this piece comes from my desire to incorporate the beautiful giant baroque pearls while covering their blemishes. I fell in love when I Wire Wrapped the first one. Not only did the wire design cover the blemishes, it enhanced the luster of the pearls by having another texture on it that also shined. I decided to use rose gold wires and pair it with lavender pink pearls but contrast it with a black crystal clasp. I can use a rose gold Clasp if you prefer but I love to show off a nice clasp.
This necklace is 40" long. It can be worn long, or a 20" double strand, or a layered 16" and 24". You can play with the position of the baroque pearls to achieve the look that feel right for the day, the large pearls are place randomly for a less rigid design.
The pearls are all fresh water cultured pearls. The pink pearls are 7-8mm and are natural color. Very nice quality with very few blemishes and nice luster. The large pearls are up from 22 to 28mm, larger than most of south sea pearls. They are random shaped. Their size and shape made these pearls very unique and rare. The do have blemishes because they are so big but my wire wrapping have covered most of them and the result is giant, shiny, interesting baroque pearls.
I hand knotted between each pearl using 100% silk thread to ensure that the pearls are secured and to achieve the soft, flowing look of the necklace.
A matching bracelet ($75) and matching earring ($75) can be made to match. I will be making the same style with different color pearls.
