freshwater pearl set

This set was made for a custom order. I have used big freshwater pearls size 8-9 mm and some rondelles with green zircones. The earring measures about 3 cm including sterling silver leverback ear wire. The necklace is about 62 cm long with sterling silver lobster clasp. 

All pearls are knotted, there is a knot in between each and every pearl. That knot does a couply great things: It keeps the pearls separated slightly so they don't rub against each other and break off the outer shell. The knot also keeps your pearls safe in case you accidentally break the necklace. If the strand breaks, only one pearl falls off the strand, instead of 62 pearls rolling all over the floor!
