Pearls! Pearls! Pearls!

"The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens."

I have a confession: I LOOVVEEE pearls!
(hint hint George, Mom, family, friends - haha)

Real Pearls, Fake Pearls, Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Cultured Pearls, Freshwater Pearls, Pink Pearls, Perfect Pearls - I just love them all.

I think they have this perfect unperfectness about them. 
They come in all shapes, sizes, colors - I just love them!
I think they embody class and timeless beauty. 
(and who doesn't want to represent that?) 
Just some of my pearl collection!

My mom went to California a few weeks ago
and came hom with the most amazing Mother's day present for me!!
She bought this bracelet and dangling earrings from a lady in San Diego!

Aren't they marvelous?

Well - the other night I was feeling crafy ...
but my sewing machine is in storage -
so my craft adventures are limited!
(can you say WITHDRAWL?)
I found an old pearl bracelet that I never wear.

My mom's gift inspired me.
I looked at the earrings and thought "I can do that".

So, I headed to Michaels ...
and 45 minutes later --
I had these!!

I quite like them!! :)

I can't wait to make more!
Now I can take jewelry making off the "oneday someday" list.


  1. I'm mad at you for being able to make earrings! I keep trying and I do NOT have the patience for all the wire wrapping. When you come to visit me or I come to visit you, you'll have to show me how you got so good at it so quickly :)
