Snow Inspiration=Pure Sparkle...

In honor of all our recent snow I thought I would show you one of the necklace and earrings sets I recently made. I titled it Pure Sparkle. As you can see by this close up shown on one of my hats I love working with lace in my jewelry. This combination of stick pearls, Swarovski crystals and lace really do sparkle when in the sun or lovely lighting.
Here is a view showing the clasp which is beautiful all on its own. The perfect compliment to the beads used in this necklace.

Here is the necklace and earrings together. The sparkle does not show in these photos. You really must see this in person to get the full effect of sparkle, shine and glimmer.
Have you worked with stick pearls?
With all of our weather I am spending time indoors going through some drawers and organizing them. It is like a treasure hunt as I find my personal treasures I have. Yesterday I found some fun things I will share in the future.
I am so happy that March is here and I can experience the days staying light later which gives me more energy. I am hoping our rain storm we are having will help to melt the snow and wash it away so I might be able to enjoy my daffodils which were just beginning to bud when they got buried under 4 feet of snow last week. I do so love the bright yellow blooms as they really do give me hope that Spring will be here even if for a very short time as we always get snow in April and May.
I am off to my studio to work on a small project.
May you have a wonderful and super creative day that brings you much joy.
Happy creating...

  5. This is such a lovely set! So feminine and pretty. I am looking forward to spring flowers, too. I am beginning to see buds sprouting in the parts of our yard that are not still covered in snow! Theresa

  6. Wow.. how lovely.. !! Beautiful arrangement.. Have a wonderful spring! ♥

  7. Totally gorgeous and the lace and pearls look beautiful together :)

  8. Stunning jewellery set Sherry, I'd never have thought of using lace in a jewellery project, yet it really does look stunning - sounds amazing with the sparkle too!

    It's so satisfying when you find treasures you'd forgot you had when sorting through things!

    Your comment you left me about the doll book made me laugh - yes, I think I half expected a doll to materialise from it too - lol.

    Have a great rest of the week xx

  12. WOW, this necklace is amazing. Delicate is the right word indeed!
    Have a happy day xxxx

  13. I love this necklace, it is so romantic, I am seeing more and more lace embellished clothes, so the necklace will go right along with them. I know, cleaning can sometimes get the creative juices flowing!


  14. I've never heard of stick pearls before, there quite exquisite! Love how your necklace and earring came out. I bet they really shimmer in the light!

  15. How lovely! Look forward to seeing the treasures you found, I so need to do the same, cabinets, boxes and bins all in need of a good sorting.


  16. What a lovely necklace! The pearls are beautiful and the lace touches are so interesting and a fabulous addition. I love stick pearls, although I have not used them much. They always look so rich!

  17. WOW, what a gorgeous set. I just love your creation and this design is stunning. Very delicate and romantic.

    Thank you for stopping by and the kind birthday wishes.
    Have a great weekend,
