Making Designer Freshwater Pearl Jewelry

Author(s): Nicole Noelle Sherman


Throughout time, people have been fascinated and bewitched by the pearl. It has been featured in jewellery since early civilization and has adorned everyone from kings and queens to movie stars. The power of the pearls is its remarkable ability to bestow upon the wearer a sense of mystery, elegance and grace. In contemporary fashion, the technical ability to create new pearl forms in an inexpensive manner has generated an excitement about possibilities of freshwater pearl jewellery. Pearls are not only available in classic round and glistening white form, but in a range of exotic and beautiful colours and shapes. This is the first jewellery-making book focused on pearls, and the projects range from casual design to bohemian and classic styles. The chapters cover the development of pearls as a material, proper stringing techniques, an illustrated techniques section and a special section on creating jewellery for brides and as wedding party accessories and gifts. The popularity of the pearl in fashion has never been greater.
