A remarkable, nature-loving metalsmith created this nest of twigs from brass. She half-silvered it, giving it the look of golden dawnlight on snow. I hung an icy blue Basha Bead from the nest.
The bead dances with every shade of silver and of pale aqua. The pendant is 2”.
This pendant necklace will be a great companion in a long meeting, as you study the half-silvering of the nest and the mystery within the Basha Bead. I hung the pendant from a 1.3 mm 18” sterling wheat chain.
I bought a silver blue baroque pearl which was utterly amazing. The ridges and valleys on the pearl offered beauty and peace. Then I looked at it in bright light. Whoa! Coral luster with flashes of emerald. Once I moved it and the whole back flashed emerald.
I was lucky enough to find some silver blue pearls in the same hue, only darker. I put the necklace together and added accents of white pearls.
Here are photos of the necklace, the luster on the front of the pearl and the luster on the back.
My Etsy shop IS SusanDolphinDelaney. I focus on simple, classic, elegant jewelry that a working woman can put on in the morning and forget until she takes it off at night. My necklaces, pendants and earrings will never distract.
HOWEVER, most of my neckpieces have a focal that will fascinate you. If you are stuck on a long phone call or if you are in a long meeting, my jewelry will be a good companion, offering you something to look at. Something that will never reveal all of its secrets, no matter how long you own it.
I intend my necklaces, pendants and earrings to be Instant Heirlooms. Jewelry that you will want to pass on to your daughters and granddaughters.
