asymmeTric balance

Pearls with Panache – a classic revisited:  asymmetric statement necklace


length:  21”/53 cm        weight:  2.85 oz/81 g


components:  large freshwater pearls, fibre beads



This take on an old classic is nothing but demure or old-fashioned.  Instead, it is bold, and full of energy and personality.


33 large white freshwater pearls, graduated in size, are kicked into gear by the insertion of four beads that could not be more different in colour and texture, vintage beads molded from that shiny black fibres. 


The contrast between the lustrous pearls and the roughly-textured black beads, inserted strategically to achieve a stunning asymmetric balance, turns this necklace from “nice” to “knock-out”.


The necklace is joined by an unusual clasp in the art deco style.


Result:  a sophisticated updated classic that can be dressed up or down.


Make your own statement with this distinctive and exclusive piece of wearable art, designed and made by me.



Note:  This necklace is part of my series of lighter necklaces for those who want to make an asymmetric statement but can't tolerate heavier necklaces.
