Leather and pearls just do it for me, cause it's classic with a twist.
I love this look with the six large white fresh water pearls each dangling from black leather cords that knot at the bottom of the sterling silver wire. They hang 2.50" from the top of the wire.
I have a new favorite source for fabulous handcrafted work with natural pearls and stones.
She is an Asian woman who travels to the Orient to purchase her base goods, and then returns to North Carolina (wee-hoo, my state) to create her own designs.
All of her pieces are the latest on the fashion scene and always incorporate natural stones, fresh water or baroque pearls, and sterling silver or gold plating.
