One-of-a-kind, artisan jewelry created with cultured, freshwater pearls can be quite stunning. Utilizing the many shapes, sizes and colors of pearls, artisans hand make this jewelry in designs of all kinds from classic strands to ultra modern. Those who appreciate exceptional pieces for casual, dress, classic or formal evening wear will love beautiful pearl necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and anklets paired with crystals, cut glass, sterling silver and semi-precious gemstones.
Each lustrous freshwater pearl differs slightly within its own form. The color of every individual pearl will vary slightly from natural, mauve and peach, to white (bleached), to dyed beads of gold, green-gold, garnet, pink, purple, peacock or blue, each one being unique. They may come in the shapes of round, square, diamond, triangles or more like rice, buttons, or even faceted. Each coin-like, puffed or flat, stick or petal pearl will look and feel entirely different. Of higher quality than irregular beads, smooth, shinny, blemish free pearls cost more than irregular beads that have varying degrees of luster. All kinds of pearls, shapes, sizes and colors may be combined to fashion elegant jewelry. The possibilities are never ending for the artist!
When paired with crystals or semi precious gemstones, freshwater pearls take on an entirely different hue, even within the same necklace or bracelet. Popular designer jewelry may even combine freshwater pearls and crystals. Artists may enhance the piece with wire wrapping, embellish it with sterling silver toggles or possibly with gold-filled trinkets. Trendy gemstone pendants also dangle from today’s unique pearl necklaces. And artists may combine traditional round pearls with cut glass, pewter and gold-filled beads. These classic, beaded necklaces may include multiple strands of pearls rather than one, with unusual sizes of beads and colors for a more modern style. All types of pearl accessories may be embellished with charms, ornaments or gems.
Impressive jewelry crafted by fine artists can be found in designer collections at art galleries, boutiques, craft fairs and online businesses. Whether wearing jeans or silk, casual or dressy, for any occasion, you will find that pearl jewelry looks and feels impressive. The many possibilities from the classic strand of pearls to the contemporary pairing of pearls, crystals and gemstones keeps fashion on the upswing for today’s modern women.
