Rings & Things Product Playtime: Pearls of Time

Remember the gorgeous Shell Pearls* that I blogged about ages ago?  The ones I got from Rings & Things? I finally worked them up into a necklace!  Pearls of Time, shown above, is made with a variety of my components in the pewter and white "oxidation" finish, with three colors of the shell pearls in two sizes.  I like the way the pink and subtle grey-blues soften the metallic shades of my components and give the industrial imagery a more antique and fancy feel. I really liked working with these shell pearls.  The quality is excellent and they have a nice weight and sheen to them.
