Pearls! Pearls! And More Pearls! Just in Time for the Holidays!

Did you know pearls are the only jewel created by a living creature? It is an organic gem, formed when an irritant such as a bit of sand or pebble finds it’s way inside the oyster shell. No grit, no pearl. I like that as a perspective on life, there has to be the grit or irritant to create the beautiful, luminous, organic gem of a pearl.

We’ve been seeing a lot of “Pearl Parties” on facebook lately and thought it might be time to re-share some pearl inspiration and tutorials that you can do with your pearls. Ready? Let’s go!

And here is a great tutorial from Kleines Feines Nestchen from her blog. It is in German, but that’s why we have pictures and Google translator, am I right?

I really like the look of linking the pearls together as shown in this tutorial. I could see just connecting 3 or 4 as a pendant. It is in Russian this time, but again Google translator is pretty helpful.
