The Bead & Button Show is approaching and I’ve started to take inventory of my supplies. One item that I continue to purchase (even though I DO NOT NEED ANY MORE) is pearls. I just can’t seem to pass up all those tables filled with these beautiful creations from the sea. Here are some inspirations on lovely jewelry being created with pearls, pearls and more pearls!
