Ndebele necklace

Post by Fleur on Thu Jul 23, 2015 2:41 pm

Shame on me, that I haven't posted pics of my wonderful Ndebele prize earlier Embarassed  - but I have worn it all the time and so love it.
It feels always special to wear a stunning Faerybeads design.

Thank you Fleur. Hug They are so shiny.. like a mirror and perfectly round as well and I love the purple hue.

I wish someone would offer decent pearls as well. I have been looking for full strands of peacock pearls on etsy and was thinking about doing the coring myself, but that would result into serious investing in equipment before I had the finished pearls in my hands... and I noticed it is really hard to find nice peacock pearls on etsy. Maybe it would be easier to buy perfectly round white pearls (I found lots of good ones and for reasonable prices) and hand-dye them myself. But that would be even more work.... Rolling Eyes
It´s a shame that katzenmeiers make only shell pearls... Sad

Laughing I am one of them... I was hoping that maybe one of the glass artists could do the coring... Wink I have no idea if I am able to drill the large holes for the silver cores into pearls, the ones you buy have usually just the tiny holes for normal pearl necklaces.

Your Ndebele necklace is so beautiful! The aztec beads match the Ndebele perfectly and the peacock pearls are a feast for the eyes too. Great combo! Love it! Drool
