Mother-of-Pearl Necklace

This is a necklace set I made to go with a winter white sweater I wore to a Christmas party. I used natural mother of pearl, gold-filled beads, vintage crystal beads, vintage spacers and clasp. I love vintage crystals and glass beads. Like many things that are vintage the craftmanship is amazing. I bought the mother of pearl beads at Friendze's. It went out of business a few months ago but you can get most any stone on eBay for a good price. There is a great beads show every year in Grapevine, Texas in May that has good deals and every store imaginable. Admission is free. You can go to for more info.

These look like you bought them. I can make simple bracelets for our daughter to wear, but not are very good!!!
