Triple Strand Freshwater Pearl 14k White Gold Necklace

  1. Phew...it's FINALLY done! It has taken me over a month to finish this - between picking out the right pearls, stretching the silk, and getting the right clasp. But it's DONE!!!

    This is a special custom order from my boss for his wife. Think she'll like it? :yes: lol It's hand knotted on 100% silk and I added my own little flare at the end with hand wire wrapped smaller (4-5 mm) freshwater pearls to attach to the 14k white gold clasp. The larger pearls range from 8 mm to 9.5 mm.

    Not sure if the photo really picks it up, but these are slightlyl graduated...the largest pearls are in the center...it took a Lonnnngggg time to arrange them that way. :sweatdrop:

  8. WOW!!! You are so talented. Stunning piece!!!!!!

  10. Yes...hand knotting pearls on silk takes a lot of work. Especially when you're halfway through one strand and break the freaking silk!!! Arg! Thankfully that only happened once.

    This particular necklace came to $2,500. Which I think is pretty fair since I saw a double strand pearl necklace at Costco with MUCH smaller pearls for $3,000!

    I love pearls...good pearls at least. The rainbow on these is so beautiful. They aren't 'perfect' rounds because that would be ridiculously expensive. But they are all very very near round with very few pits or other imperfections.
