Custom Story: Heirloom Pearl Redesign

Versatile, Bright and Fresh

Heirloom Pearl Necklace Redesign 

Do you have an impossible opera length strand of pearls? Maybe a couple of short beaded strands? You could be wearing them all in a gorgeous necklace like this I custom designed for a client who came to me with a collection of unwearable pieces. Updated, now they are a versatile, bright and fresh show-stopping statement piece. This one of a kind necklace can be worn at three different fixed lengths.

I would love to shake up some inherited or outdated pieces from your collection, too.  To get started, fill out my Custom Inquiry Form & let's get going!

This is where we started.

My client's inherited pearl necklace and an additional mixed light blue gemstone beaded necklace. First, I unstrung everything.

To their beads I added several strands from my collection: apatite, mint amethyst and Peruvian opal to name a few. The light blue-green tones went beautifully with the pale green cast of their pearls.

 

 

Then, I handcrafted a handful of 22k yellow gold rings and two "S" hooks for the clasps. These elements -  strung at specific points on the full 70" finished piece  - would give my client multiple length options.

To really give the necklace a bang, I added a silky, lush aquamarine drop to hang center.

I truly loved making this piece. I was deeply touched to be asked as well as have my client's confidence to update some of their inherited pieces.
