REDUCED Blister Pearl Yellow Recycled Glass Necklace Earring Set OOAK

Details

One-of-a-kind Golden Pearl Set: Featured in this set is a dramatic oblong blister pearl I hand-wrapped in tarnish-resistant Argentium silver with accents of saffron recycled glass and freshwater pearl. Corresponding handmade coils of Argentium are sprinkled in the necklace with saffron-colored recycled glass nuggets and rounds, partnered with 6x8 mm freshwater pearls. For contrasting sparkle, I used two sizes of clear bicone crystals with aurora borealis finish and silver-lined clear glass beads. The result is an interesting mix of matte and sparkling textures as the tumbled glass and the beads and silver reflect the light quite differently. The refined crystals are also a nice counter-point to the organic pearls.

I strung this handcrafted necklace on a 49-strand sterling plated beading wire with sterling silver wire protectors and crimps. The clasp is a high-quality Argentium safety s-clasp to match the Argentium-wrapped blister pearl and coils. The wrapped blister pearl is 2-3/4" from the top of the wire-wrapped bail and about 1-1/4" at the widest point. Necklace length is 22".

The components of this necklace are unique, so I created earrings to go along with the piece. A matching bicone crystal, recycled glass round, and freshwater pearl sit atop a handmade spiral, securely wire-wrapped to my handmade earwire. The earrings are made from all Argentium as well and are a simple balance to the necklace.

As with all my uniquely designed and handcrafted pieces, this set comes packaged in a jewelry box and I will add a personalized gift note at no cost (just give me the info in notes to seller when checking out). First Class postage cost includes tracking, and in this case I will upgrade to add appropriate insurance and ship by Priority Mail. Please review my Policies page for further information on purchasing from my online studio.

Thanks for spending time in my virtual shop!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The blister pearl is created when a pearl forms within the shell of the oyster. I really love the unpredictable (no two are alike) nature of the blister pearl and wanted to play that up in a truly unique jewelry set. I chose the saffron recycled glass to bring out the "gold" tone in the blister pearl and the crystals to accent the smoothness of the pearls.

Materials Used

Blister pearl focal, freshwater pearls, recycled glass nuggets and rounds, bicone crystals, glass beads, handmade Argentium coils, Argentium safety s-clasp, handmade Argentium earwires

More Info

I chose Argentium, which is a proprietary tarnish-resistant form of sterling silver, because with wire wrapping it's a little harder to polish if a piece starts to tarnish. One trick is to store the set in an airtight container when not being worn (I use zip-top food bags) but the metal itself with not tarnish as quickly as sterling silver.

Note that the recycled glass is unique in itself, with slight bubbles and organic shapes. Please allow for this variation in the material.
