A few years ago I made a retro pearl necklace and no sooner had I displayed it than an elderly lady came up to me and said “I used to wear pearls like that” and paid me five dollars over the asking price, for sentimental reasons.
I have reproduced the same style, but changed it to have the drapes on the front only.
It is a long time since i have done any beading and found that I needed more patience than I thought I would need. It is lovely though when a piece is completed.
Photography is the next thing I need to practice.
