These necklace is made using absolutely gorgeous, lustrous freshwater pearls, varying in size from 10mm to 13mm. A truly stunning piece of jewellery which I hope will become one of your family heirlooms.
I have hand knotted each pearl to secure it in place and protect the lustre from its neighbour. Freshwater pearls are gorgeous knobbly bits of lovelieness, each one being unique.
I drew the heart and cut it from 0.8mm solid sterling silver. I want this piece to be truly eye catching, so I hammered the surface of the heart to create multiple surfaces which add to the glimmer of the silver, and then gently curved the surface. The heart measures approximately 5cm/2" at the widest parts in both directions and the necklace is 66cm/26" long excluding the heart.
Such a special necklace deserved an amazing clasp - so I made a S-clasp using 2mm sterling silver wire and it is very easy to use, no fiddling behind your neck!
I have also made a matching bracelet and earrings too, if you would like to make a set or add to it at a later date.
The necklace will arrive wrapped in tissue, placed in a Jojo B logo box and wrapped in grosgrain ribbon.
