Trinket #46 - Pearls and Glass

To redeem myself after yesterday's tacky trinket, I felt I needed to make something with a little more class today. I guess I'm a bit old fashioned, but nothing to me is classier than pearls.

My grandmother gave me a delicate string of 4mm ivory pearls when I turned 16 and it is secretly one of my very favorite necklaces, not that anyone would guess that because I've only ever worn them four or five times. I suppose I keep them reserved for special occasions, and those don't really come up much for a person who wears t-shirts and jeans everyday. Maybe I should make more of an effort to get them out of the jewelry box, even if it is just for the memories of the awesome lady who gave them to me.

So, there you have it. Today's trinket is a simple but stylish pair of earrings made from silver wire, glass seed beads, and freshwater pearls.


  1. Elegant! I happen to think, even in jeans and a t-shirt they would look adorable. I've become fond of the fresh water pearls myself.

    Beth, by the way, thank you SO much for the package! Seriously, for everything!! You will be receiving yours soon.. I'm finishing it up. I am grateful for all that you sent and anxious to test the bonus!
