Blue cameo necklace by fairyfrog Blue cameo necklace by fairyfrog
Sterling silverset blue laser-cut agate cameo with dyed sweetwater pearls.

I had the cameo laying around for two years waiting for the perfect project. The pearls been in my drawer for over ten years for the same reason. I finally got to use them!

Victorian-inspired.

All the findings by me.

how did you dye the pearls? I've been trying to figure out how to. And I've looked online but nothing has worked right. I have a lot of pearls laying around and wanted to add color to them.

I did not dye these myself, they were purchased dyed over 13 years ago.

But I googled it for you and came up with this as a first link.

Pearls are a matural substance and strong dye should affect them. I have been thinking about trying to use a dye I normally use on feathers - they dye both feathers and nails (keratin), and should affect pearls as well.

If I get round to experimenting with it I'll get back to you.

Here's the link.

That is really pretty!!!

I have an idea! What if the cameo in the middle was replaced by a small watch. that way it looked like you were wearing a mini clock?

Lovely idea! I have some brand new, victorian-styled little jewelry clocks I've been meaning to use in a project!

Absolutely gorgeous! *is green with envy* I want one! XD

If all goes well and I get to finish my mad hatter hat I might need a hatpin or two for it. I was thinking of commissioning you to make them :P because of your general awesomeness. I know you're probably very busy, and I'm not sure when my hat will be done (hopefully before June XD), but I thought I'd put the idea out there at least.

That is a very pretty necklace you have put together I love the master piece in the middle it brings the dark bead into a slow cooling mood as it come down the collar bone and into the center of the piece at the light blues and whites, very very pretty.
