Pearls, Red Velvet crystal, Ruby Swarovski, -8161-B


Cultured Freshwater potato pearls are the main ingredient in this design. The Center red crystal looks just like rich Red Velvet cloth, that you have to reach out to touch it to make sure its Not fabric! Because these are real pearls they do not fit on the wires i use, so they are strung on the same cable that i use for my necklaces. Secured at the top with a crimp bead, and sealed then in a bead end to attach to Silver plated ear wires.

I chose ruby Swarovski 3mm bicones for the accent. I regret not having purchased smaller "Red Velvet" crystals. I was not sure i would be able to fit them into my Native themed line of Jewelry. But i just had to find them a place in my designs, so i have reintroduced my 'Fine Jewelry' line to my studio.

Between the beads i added bright black 15/0 seed beads. Just the hint of black seems to further accent the "velvet" appearance of the center Crystal. Makes me think of Black Velvet, very inviting, yet very chic.

I currently have made this design in Silver. but will be making it in gold later this month.

I LOVE this design.. I hope you will also.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The Red Velvet faceted crystals caught my eye from across the room at the International Gem Show last fall. I just Had to go check it out & Touch! Nope, it was not fabric covered, it was not resin covered, but the Richness of the bead itself made it a "must have" that day. I sacrificed some of my needed component beads just to be able to bring these beads home to add to my inventory. Then experimented with them in various settings. When i placed them with the Freshwater Pearls. the beauty jumped out at me.. this was the Niche they wanted to be in. The International Gem Show returns this Nov. I will be searching for more of this Red Velvet wonder. I want to be sure to have it as a staple in my Jewelry designs.
