I've been wanting to share this creation with you for quite sometime now but I had to wait until the recipient received it, as it was a birthday gift and I didn't want to ruin the surprise. Dan's mom commissioned this necklace and earring set as a gift for her daughter-in-law's 40th birthday. As she described her desired palette to me, it became evident that the colors of the sea were her true inspiration.
The result is a set that I am very, very happy with. It's quite different than anything I've done before, especially because it incorporates so many pearls. I am not one to wear pearls but I think this necklace has changed my mind. I hope to make more, in different color schemes and media- perhaps incorporating brass, gold vermeil, or wood.
