The Project: Pearls...Pearls



After my laziness during the weekend I decided to start creating again. I watched many old films these days (East of Eden, Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) and I was in a very 1950s and 1960s mood. So, I was inspired by the most elegant woman of those days, Jackie Kennedy Onassis who loved wearing pearls.


Style icon: Jackie Kennedy Onassis wearing pearls




I chose many freshwater cultured pearls in different colors and made a long, long, necklace that can be worn in many different ways such as this ...

...or this

or even this...

...why not as a bracelet as well!



Because some times, a simple black dress and a few strands of pearls are enough for an elegant outfit!

Stunning necklace you made! I love the versatility of it! And Jackie O was a true style icon. I think without her, pearls would still be considered outdated, but she just showed women how chic they can be :)
