Another day @ The Brain Injury today & our gift from the teacher was she bought us all Fresh Water Pearls so that we could each make this. I chose the black Swarovski Crystals for my necklace & Burgundy Swarovski Crystals for the sterling silver angel earrings. They both took a lot of concentration as they were quite challenging for me. I am really pleased with the finished necklace & the earrings are much prettier then the camera shows here.....they have a burgundy crystal in each bottom where the dress is but for some reason you can't see it? They are quite a deep dark colour too?

I think you are saying that you strung these yourself. Did you really? Kay

Yes I did I had to count to make each side even measure my neck & do the math to make it the right length & add closure beads to prevent falling off & then the Instructor helped me with the little heart on the end & the break apart magnetic clasp. I think I could do this again except I would need help to finish the ends. ~hugs~
