The Classic Pearl

I’ve always considered the Pearl to be the most elegant and classic piece to work with.  That is the reason why I always name my pieces “The Classic Pearl”.  Pearls are timeless and versatile.  They can be worn during any occasion without the wearer looking over accessorized or under accessorized.

I first started using pearls last year.  Specifically, I opted for the freshwater pearl because it was much cheaper than the South Sea pearls.  I started off with simple designs to test the market and they were a hit! I decided on the regular wire wrap because aside from it being easy to construct, I believed that it was simple and elegant enough to match the focal piece, which is the pearl.

Fast forward to today.

The royal wedding draws near and the internet is flooded with photos of the royal couple, particularly the soon to be princess, Kate Middleton.  During one of my surfing, I found several photos which took my breath away.  The earrings she wore often were an uncanny resemblance to the classic pearl earrings I made last year!! Not only that, she wore another pair of earrings that was also similar to the citrine earrings also from the same collection!!

No, my friends, I did not make those that she was wearing (although I wish that one day she will carry one of my pieces…:). In my excitement, I have made a collage that emphasizes what I have just said.

Here is a photo of the faceted Austrian crystal earrings in citrine gold wire wrapped in sterling silver and another one wire wrapped in argentium wire:

Here is the collage/the photos of “The Classic Pearl” earrings made from freshwater pearls wire wrapped in 10k solid gold wire:

These two earrings were from my 2010 Collection.  I still make them now although I have upgraded into South Sea shell pearls.

Louise necklace

A special request came in about a month ago.

Inspite of the hard work it took, I loved the idea and the outcome so much that I decided to include it in my shop!  I’d like to introduce everyone to the “Louise” necklace.  Two strands of large freshwater pearls are handlinked with 10k solid gold wire.  To make it more versatile, I included a detachable brooch.

This elegant old-world inspired necklace is now available.

I’d be very happy to have one crafted in a different color or in sterling silver.  Please leave a message and lets talk 🙂

Coming soon

It’s a lazy, quiet Sunday morning.  I’m done with the household chores,  have given the little one his bath, and now we sit side by side as I listen to him read his books.  I, on the other hand, have my coffee mug at my side as I go through hundreds of photos I’ve taken the past few days of new pieces that I’ll be posting over the next few weeks.  However, excitements get me as I can’t wait to share with you what’s in store.  🙂

So, just for you, loyal readers, you get a sneak peek of up and coming pieces from me 🙂
