Akoya and Freshwater Pearls Drop Earrings

Who would have ever thought that certain mollusks/mollusc would produce something so beautiful out of being irritated? We should be so lucky.

Who can resist pearls? They flatter any skin color, they make us feel beautiful.

They are our go to when we can’t make up our minds to which jewelry we should wear.

With this pair of earrings I chose three different size pearls to make them interesting.

I wove pearls smaller then rice krispies with gold filled wire. These are organic shape Akoya’s. For those of you not
familiar with akoya’s, they are salt water pearls.

Tiny ones like these are rare.

The centers are fresh water pearls with a high luster.

Finished off with an Akoya drop.

14k gold overlay on sterling vermeil hammered hooks.

All of the earrings I make like this are called “Bubble Tops”

Very time consuming to make, I love doing this. These are designed by me just like everything else I make.
