Thanks to Michelle Buettner, our "Pearl Professor," for hosting and creating such inspiring pearl art.
For this challenge, I am gearing up for the July 4th holiday and chose a pattern by Jill Wiseman as my inspiration. Jill's Fireworks Necklace was in the August/September 2013 Beadwork Magazine shown below.
I decided to interpret it quite literally in a color palette of red, white and blue. The white pearls are complemented by blue and red glass beads.
And here are the handy links to more pearl inspiration.
