Elegance (pearls)

Elegance necklace & bracelet set - freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, mother of pearl :: All the Pretty ThingsI picked today's piece from my collection of gifts - this one was made for a very dear friend of mine. You know the type - the one that has everything and you cannot figure out what to give them... If you buy something too expensive you fear they'll think you're showing off; you can’t really buy a trinket; nothing seems to be the perfect gift.

So you decide to make something for them - and that will make it special, even if it's not pure 24K gold or diamonds.

Thus the 'Elegance' piece - strung with freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals: the necklace with a shell cross as a pendant; the bracelet with 3 strands.

This is such an elegant piece - can be worn on a very special occasion: the Swarovski crystals spark beautifully and share the light everywhere. The style is classic - the necklace sits close to the collarbone, the bracelet embraces your arm in a glamorous hug.

Since then I've been thinking to make a set for myself, and add earrings - however, life gets in the way and, on top of that, I couldn't decide on the style of earrings (maybe I'll go without!).

Do you have a piece of jewelry that's dear to you? What makes it special?
