As a jewelry artist, next to Swarovski Crystal, freshwater pearls are my favorite to work with….when making a piece of jewelry with them, it’s like instant gratification seeing how nice the piece is turning out. Pearls are so classic and beautiful. They go with everything.
I just finished a necklace and earring set done in green freshwater pearls and unakite (a green and brick colored gemstone) and I’ve just posted them for sale in my etsy store “Bohemian Ice.” The earrings are gold-plated (earwires & dangle) and the toggle on the necklace is gold-plated also. I always try to use quality materials in all of my creations, and that includes jewelry, painting, photography, etc.
Here’s the links to the necklace http://www.etsy.com/listing/49738703/green-freshwater-pearl-and-unakite and the earrings http://www.etsy.com/listing/49737907/green-freshwater-pearl-and-unakite?ref=v1_other_2
