This has a nice romantic look to it. These are glass pearls strung with silver pewter beads. The necklace focal is a filigree puffed heart. I also made matching earrings. I prefer glass pearls to the natural ones because I think they will hold up better. With real pearls, they always say no hairspray, no perfume, no lotion, etc. Those are too many rules for me. I always treat my jewelry carefully, but I'm not keen on a long list of rules. If you've ever seen the many collections of glass pearls, oh my! So many beads, so little time!
