I am forever on the look out for fine ladies or women of royalty wearing exceptional pearl jewellery. Today I was thrilled to see this wonderful portrait of Catherine the Great, by Fedor Rokotov from 1763. I immediately focused as I usually do on the pearls of the wearer. The size of these amazing pearls in here hair would in life take your breath away. Remembering pearls were incredibly rare in the 1800’s and before. We do know that Russian aristocrats adored pearls but just feast your eyes on eyes this!
I often ask my clients to please send me a pic wearing their purchase and am so happy to see one finally came through. This is the lovely Jane wearing her special Double White Pearl Earring which I was commissioned to make. I think the results are pretty wonderful.
Just when you think you have seen every possible White Pearl Earring on the planet you find there are loads more to enjoy. I have a real thing about creating completely different pearl jewellery but when it comes to the White Pearl Earring I have gone to town.
If the Julleen Pearl Jewellery range isn’t one of the biggest variety and collections of White Pearl and Sterling Earrings made by one designer label, then honestly I don’t know what designer label would do bigger and what’s more, better!
Pearl Jewellery is my true passion in life. I am sure I drive some people mad as I must mention my jewellery making every day. I strive to make an earring last for a life time and for a design that is only meant for the person who buys it. This is why many of my earrings are one’s OF and my customers return two decades on, yet have their original pieces still. I am collecting all the images of White Pearl Earrings for all to see on my Pinterest page. Some with a bit of colour added in the way of a stone like a garnet or peridot but basically a beautiful white pearl earring in Sterling Silver or with gold vermeil added over the sterling.
I really love using colours when making pearl jewellery. Creating a look that no one else would dare to try is my favourite thing. I wanted an Art Deco look and wanted to use a bit lime green with black against the stark beauty of white genuine pearls. Introducing the Designer set called Groovy. I used some cute Lime Crystal beads in both the earrings and the necklace I think it goes beautifully with the Black Wood Pendant and button pearls. It has a type of Deco feel to it and it certainly is something you will never see anywhere else.
Christmas time brings inspiration sometimes. I just made the perfect Earring. A double white pearl drop bezel set and tear drop sterling silver earring. I thought I would share it here. Stunning 9 mm button bezel set pearls with a large plump dangle pearl. So feminine! Similar can be purchased at https://www.julleen.com/product-category/earrings/bezel-set/
I have always liked star fish and really it makes for the perfect fit with pearls and so I created a substantial large pink pearl bracelet that even has a seaman’s hook clasp. All the components match well with a nautical theme.
When I first made the peacock green pearl twist necklace I knew at the time it was a spectacular piece that every one would just adore and have for decades to come. This necklace was first worn by beautiful Teresa in 2005. Here we are in 2018! and she just sent me a image to let me see how it is doing and how often she still wears her favourite Julleen pearl necklace.
I am so proud of this necklace and it really is one of my finest designs ever
The earring Terri wears here are just as stunning as the day she got them and again this shows how Julleen Jewellery is not a throw away item but one made to last for really a life time of wear.
One of the most beautiful and gemstones in the semi precious genre has got to be Citrine. These days many shades of citrine are available to most jewellery makers. I have used lemon and pale yellow citrine but just recently I created a stunning pendant which included one baroque gold pearl and a huge golden citrine. The gold pearls I use here is one of the first purchases I made when I first started Julleen Pearl Jewellery.
Now what to do with this fabulous pendant? I could of course make it easy on myself and just thread it onto a plain white pearl necklace or even just thread it over a chain. Nah Ah. Not me. I want to build a fine designer piece around the pendant and so began by choosing more of the golden pearl that highlights this stunning 22 ct Golden Citrine. Adding some champagne, cram and white pearls and copious amounts of sterling silver spacers, Voila after about a half a days’ work, this is the result!
Now available of Etsy let’s see what you, the public think of my lovely new gold hue gemstone and pearl necklace.
