White Wednesday - Pearls, Girls!

I was playing with some pieces of costume jewellery earlier, well, actually I was trying to get some order into the heaps of stuff, and I realised that I had quite a few faux pearl necklaces. Pearls, aaah, they are such tactile little things, round, smooth, cool and softly shimmering and I love running strands of them through my hands.

So, for this week's White Wednesday over at FADED CHARM, I took a few photographs of my pearls. The first few are of a necklace which I really adore. Pearls combined with Swarovski crystals, doesn't get much better than that -


These gorgeous vintage pieces always have such wonderful clasps -


This is so much fun, piling them all up and playing with them -


Happy White Wednesday to all who are playing along as well. For more beautiful Whiteness, hope over to the FADED CHARM blog and check out the links.

Those clasps are a work of art on their own. Definitely need short hair to make the most of those ones. Never been a pearl girl but those are very nice indeed.

Karen said...

You crack me up! We sooooo think alike! Remember when I told you not to sort or fold or wrap any lace - cuz I wanted it in a big pile whenI dumped it out and got to discover each and every piece? That's what this post reminds me of.
I love your pearls. I have one set of my Mom's, I wish I had the rest. BUT! Didn't know I'd one day want them and they went with the estate sale. Hurts my heart just thinking about it.But I guess we can't hang on to everything.
I love your pile.
Hey my niece is over from Oxford! We are going to see her today, along with my other niece's new baby! Very fun family reunion today!
Have a great weekend!!!
Hugs! Karen
