My SIL is in a wedding in March and she asked me to make some jewelry for her. She picked out the beads and pearls and gave me an idea of how she invisioned it. We started talking about it in January and I just finished it tonight. It took me a lot longer to finish than I expected, about 15 hours hands on, but based on the sketches she drew me, it's (hopefully) exactly what she wanted. I had to work out of my comfort zone with this one...I've made quite a few simple earrings, necklaces and bracelets, but haven't worked with pearls or with thread (vs. wire) before.
