A friend of mine asked me to take a look at a pearl necklace that she received as a gift from a friend. She loved the pearls but found she wasn't wearing them because the necklace looked too formal for her taste.
She requested a long necklace she could wrap around two or three times that was more casual. I re-styled this necklace for her by hand knotting her pearls and clear fire polished glass beads - to add a bit of shimmer. I left some space between the knots which gives the piece a more casual look.
My friend picked up her newly designed necklace today and loved it! Now she has a very versatile pearl necklace she will be able to wear all the time instead of a piece saved for special occasions.
