Pearl and Sterling Silver Bracelet

I have always loved pearls – every shape, size, color and even their corresponding names – coin, petal, button, rice, etc.

I had gotten away from designing with pearls as much because, let’s face it, there are a lot of beads out there!

Recently, I got back to using my stash of pearls.

I find designing with pearls fairly easy because they are so lovely on their own and they don’t need much embellishment.

Of course, they also pair well with any stone.

One of my favorite combinations is turquoise as shown here.

  1. Lovely collection, Liz! I love this wide variety of artistry – in these finished jewelry pieces, and in the pearls themselves. My favorite is the necklace with stick pearls and turquoise in photo 4. And I agree, I seem to like pearls of any shape best when they’re combined with simple elements and not overly embellished.

  2. Yum! Your pearl jewelry is beautiful. I love the keishi Petal Pearl necklace but I also adore that chunk of turquoise!! I have a nice size stash of pearls, mostly round, rice & button & love designing with them. Like gemstones, the price of nicer quality pearls has gone way up 🙁 I’m glad I invested in a bunch before that happened!
