I wanted to make this pearl design more playful than traditional pearl jewelry. I think the unique shape of the Swarovski crystal and the spiky dagger give this piece a little edge!
Pearls are a classic choice for jewelry, but it's always fun to use them in unexpected ways. Cheri paired a simple backdrop of pearls and gold chain with a dangling Swarovski crystal and a TierraCast dagger. These striking components stand out against the soft beauty of the pearls. You can dangle any pendants or beads you wish for your own interpretation of this design.
Slide a Swarovski 11mm Galactic bead onto a gold-filled 025 1.5-inch eye pin and make a simple loop at the top of the bead. We used a Galactic bead in Crystal Copper, featured as a gift with purchase for December 2017. This bead is no longer available for purchase, but you can use similar Galactic beads, listed in our Perfect Product Pairings below. Attach this link to the loop on the TierraCast gold-plated pewter hammered bail spacer.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
