Leather and Pearl Necklace, Large Natural Pink Flameball Pearl Necklace, Leather, Tassel, Baroque Pearl, Rare Flameball, Sterling








Love. Love. Love. These pearls are AMAZING. I fell in love with first sight at my local pearl supplier. The style is Baroque Flameball. Such a lovely nacre.

These are absolutely beautiful extra large baroque natural nucleated "flameball" pearls. "Baroque" style indicates a naturally formed pearl with character in each swirl. Flameball pearls have been cultured in freshwater mussels. Each mussel is "nucleated"with a bit of shell and allowed to mature over the following two years as the pearl develops. A natural characteristic is a rounder bottom half and wing-like sides.

I wired the pearl in sterling silver filled wire to oval sterling silver rings then suspended from 32 inches of a double layer of baby soft deerskin leather which ties at the neck (you could always loosen and adjust). From the pearl I wire wrapped in more silver a five inch tassel in the same soft deerskin leather. Did you notice that I worked in a few Swarovski crystals to the wire for a subtle bit of bling? I created this necklace for myself first and wore it for several days as a market research:) And oh, yes, did it get noticed.

See here. For a full ensemble check out these earrings, here. To die for. More baroque pearls wired in sterling pins and hung from sterling silver earwires. I like mine long so wore them with kidney wires.

~~QUALITY CONTROL:
All Magpies are made by me in my home studio. All metals used are nickle and lead free. Pearls measure 30mm by 17mm in diameter. They are a natural pink/white nuceated baroque flameball. Wire is sterling silver. Leather is deerskin.

Long Baroque Pearl Earrings, Wire Wrap Pearl Earrings, Sterling Pearl Dangle Earrings, Statement Pearls



Make a statement with these beauties. I simply wired larger baroque off white pearls in sterling silver ballpins and hung from sterling silver oval links from your choice of earwire. Shown are the leverback and 1.25"kidney wires.

Each piece is handmade to order, and due to the free form nature of pearls, no two pairs will ever be the same, but will look pretty darn close to what is pictured above:) I've matched up pearls as close as possible in size and color.

Snatch up your pair here!! Chose long or short. See coordinating necklace here.

Each pair of earrings is slightly different. Earrings fall 1.5" from the top of the oval ring. From the kidney wires they fall 2.5 inches.
