the beauty of simple pearls


I'm still sick, although starting to feel better. I'm just super tired still and can't seem to get my body on a normal sleeping pattern. Jet lag and a time change are not a good mix for me! Still I'm tired of just wondering around the house feeling bad and am trying to get something (anything!) done despite my sniffles. Enter costuming...


Pics of my finished 17th century necklace. I know it's super simple but I'm totally in love with it. The orange silk ribbon might have something to do with it of course.




In other news... I couldn't take the four walls anymore on Monday and went out to help Tina fabric shop for her turban. I had a great time, probally overdid a bit, but I needed the time with a good friend. While at Jo-Anns I found a pretty light weight funky green-yellow cotton for $2 a yard - score! When I got home I realized that the fabric matched the vintage beads I bought in San Diego - sweet! Do I know what I like or what?! I'm thinking a new Regency day gown is in order. Trimmed with red.

It's gorgeous!! There's nothing quite like a simple necklace of pearls. :-D

Very true, there is nothing you can't wear pearls with. Maybe that is why I'm loving them so - all the possibilities. :>

Good point! I've always loved them because they're my birthstone, and they're white, but their versatility is also a plus. ;-)

Ohmygosh, we have matching necklaces! :)
(Mine's pink pearls w/cream ribbon. The next one will be cream pearls w/blue or purple ribbon.) Love those!
