Plump and Round Fresh Water Pearls, hung by wrapped silver on shaped and hammered earwires.
I like to think these little darlings are a Classic.
... they are lying on a pretty Bay of Fundy beach stone which in turn is lying on a flea market knotted lace tablecloth... two more things I can't resist.
Earth Stone (properly called Bauxite) Sterling and Copper
on a little pen and ink leaf from my sketchbook.
I like the irregularity of these stones and that they feel cool to the touch...
Airy Sterling Silver Spirals with Amethyst hung by twisted and twirled Silver,
Turquoise Jasper, Patinated and Antiqued Copper
(hanging on the side of a bowl I made many years ago as a student... why does it seems like yesterday)
One of my favourite paintings with a Pearl as the Vocal point is The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer (love the look in her eyes) .... which brings me to mention the novel, The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Tracey Chevalier.. I really loved this book... a fictional account on the 17th century household of the Dutch painter Vermeer.. There is also a movie.
