A friend needed (desperately) a last minute touch for her evening outfit for an important event, the outfit had a deep cleavage ....
So - since I'm such a good friend always ready to help those in need... especially when design issues pop up... since it was a last minute thing I couldn't start from scratch, I prepared her a last minute improvisation by taking half a curl from my Goldilocks earrings and hung it on a large loop. to this I added a wonderful large fresh water pearl to give it some weight and to increase the movement of the flexible curl.
The outcome in my eye is very feminine and design wise a nice combination of a trendy jewel with a classic touch.
With the photo I'm not yet quite happy, I think it will have to be taken on a live model, meaning sometime over the rainbow or just over this super busy period.
The curl is created using a tiny crochet hook in a rare technique as most my pieces are...
The chain is 20"(52cm) long and the curl with the pearl are additional 2"(5cm) .
