Pearls, pearls and more pearls!

My lovely model Bianca is wearing two pearl necklaces, one is a 2 strand necklace of grey pearls and faceted black onyx with a large black lipped pearl set in silver,the other is a smaller black lipped pearl set in silver with grey pearls and silver chain. I realised the other day that each collection of mine had pearls in it!

Amethyst and Onyx Bracelet

by Jewels of Saraswati on Jan.22, 2010, under Handmade Jewelry

I have been thinking a lot about the beauty of stones in their various forms and amethyst really seems to be a favorite of mine!

Recently, I have created several items with amethyst in a rough nugget form. To the touch they are rough, but they also have a velvety appearance which is delightful. Here is a recent creation of mine from natural amethyst nuggets. I have purposely mixed them with smooth jet black onyx to bring out the play in the textures an added antique filigree beads to accent.

This item and others can be found in Jewels Of Saraswati’s shop.

Love Hurts Necklace
Love Hurts Necklace

This necklace has a large handcut brass heart, 12cm long and 10cm wide. It has black labradorite, black blister pearls, black peacock pearls, purple and blue pearls and faceted black onyx beads. It is from my ‘Love Hurts’ range and is very dramatic, a real statement piece.

The purple and blue pearls are amazing colors. I would really really love jumpers in these colors, preferably shiny like the pearls. To watch my complete collection, check my website.

Brass Heart and Pearl Earrings

Brass and pearl heart earrings

Brass Heart and Pearl Earrings

These earrings are really pretty. Handcut brass hearts with black, blue and purple pearls and faceted black onyx beads. I have worked with brass for the last 20 years at least, I love the earthy tones it has, especially when its worn. I am not a big fan of gold plating although I do use gold plated findings. I would love to make my whole ‘Love Hurts’ in 18ct gold! Alas I can’t afford to do that right now but one day I will. You can checkout my shop for more.
