I absolutely adore this necklace. Both sets of pearls were bought within the past year – the gold coins at a local beading shop, and the white potato pearls online. The two strands are connected by carved carnelian flowers, which were bought online with my friend Carolyn, of Maidenstar. We placed an order together and ended up getting a better discount and better shipping. 🙂
I’ve wanted to do a design like this for ages, and sorting through my beads this morning, I decided to give this combination a try. I’m SO glad I did.
