Sometimes I'll recognize unintentional themes emerging in my work. I recently discovered that I'd been drawn to lots of milky white textures from mother of pearl to ivory to shell. Versatile and rich, these elements are always a refreshing touch in my jewelry designs and are especially welcome as spring approaches.
This incredible vintage rosary is a real stunner with large mother of pearl beads and a heart-shaped connector.
These delicious baroque pearls are really to die for. I've been saving them for the perfect necklace.
Mother of pearl and vintage rose-carved ivory beads. I think it's PC to use vintage ivory, right?
Creamy pendants waiting to be used.
Little shell circles.
And here are a few finished pieces currently available in my Etsy shoppe.
All these milky images have put me in the mood for some cookies. Bon soir, mes amis! :)
