Cheap pearls

You must know that when I make jewelry, I don't sit down with a plan or a pattern. I just sit with all my beads on the table in front of me, and I play with them until I decide which ones go together. Yesterday, when I was making the blue and silver necklace in the previous post, I was thinking about some charms that I was expecting in the mail, ones that look like starfish and seashells, and I had the thought that they would look very nice on a necklace with blue waves and pearls. I told myself it would be the next necklace I made, so today, I made it.

These blue glass beads don't look as nice with the pearls as I had hoped. In fact, they look rather cheap to me. I don't think I will be using it for those charms after all.

If any of you feel differently, and would like this necklace, please email me. I will be happy to send it somewhere where it would be appreciated.

I think this is rather pretty.
Is it possible you are too hard on yourself? :)
I think you do great work.
