You may remember the blue tahitian pearl which I wangled during the last Hong Kong buying trip….
Well, We just heard from its new owner who has made it into a beautiful pendant on a handmade silver chain necklace. Here it is
Maker retired jeweller Dennis (who made this for his daughter) told us: ‘First I made a handmade chain, a slimmed down version of an antique pocket watch chain, with a matching adjustment section. It is finished with a small freshwater pearl as a charm. On the other end is a hook fastener in similar style.
The long links were made by stretching large O-rings
The bell for the pendant is like the calix of a mini-aubergine and the whole is a bit like regalia, but it is going overseas, where they are not shy about a bit of power dressing.’
Thank you for letting us know what you made Dennis – we send these pearls out into the world and we do wonder how they fare.
