Pearl rope necklace and earrings

I've been working on a necklace and earring set for some time. It took time because I've been buying the supplies as I needed them. Being rather new to jewelry making, I neither have a large inventory, nor deep enough pockets on which to build one.

The whole process of putting together a project is sort of an adventure for me. There's something to be said for not rushing things, because I get a sense of satisfaction of letting a project "speak" to me as it's being made. This said that it wanted to be very soft and feminine. I listed the necklace in my shops yesterday and will be posting the matching earrings today.

Materials - Pink/peach biwa pearls, ivory freshwater pearls, assorted clear and ruby colored AB cone, tube, and seed beads, sterling silver wires, beads and clasp.

Hope you like them!
