What Happens to Old Pearl Bracelets When They Die? They are reborn as new Pearl jewellery

Here’s a story of a very tried bracelet that was very much loved and worn often. After one of the 4 rows of a black and white pearl bracelet became loose, my friend of many decades asked me what could be done to revamp it for her mother to whom she had gifted this piece years ago. I suggested to remake it as a necklace. My friend’s Mum, who was finding the clasp difficult to cope with thee days saw this as a very positive thing to do.

After giving her preferred length, I pulled the entire bracelet apart and created a long and very charming new necklace for her, making it to the required length. This was done by adding some whopping big white pearls and more topaz and smaller black pearls. Voila! a stunning new piece was made for my friend’s Mum.

Today I was sent the picture of her Mum wearing her new necklace and I am so proud of the new design but even more so, now that she told me she wants to wear it all the time. She says she loves it so much and that it’s just perfect. Well what better words could I want to hear, as the designer.

Nothing makes me happier than hearing such wonderful things from my customers.

 

Mad About Coral Earrings for the Australian Summer

Coral beads and the fabulous orangey pink colour have been a favourite of mine for decades. October 2019 has come so quickly I know and you can feel the buzz in the air as the weather changes. Coral is a great happy colour for just about anyone and am sure we’ll be seeing it at the Melbourne Cup and the Spring season of racing and many other fun events around this time of year.

This is what inspired me to make some very cute Coral bead earrings and put them into my Esty store. Please take a look at what I think are some of my best coral designers over the years. Loads more in my Etsy Store.
