Meet Eva: Peach and Gunmetal

** Read the original post and follow the blog at my new domain: www.evamdesigns.com!!! **

I’ve been busy working on my 1920s Collection this past week and have finished five new pieces that I’ll be posting over the next few days! Today I want to introduce you to Eva.  This necklace features a cluster of peachy freshwater pearls (4 mm), dangling from three delicate gunmetal chains.  I absolutely love how the chains sparkle in the light, although that’s something I find difficult to capture in the photographs.

Anyway, in addition to the necklace, I’ve creating a matching set of earrings! These earrings have tiny freshwater pearls (2-3 mm) clustered on handcrafted gunmetal ear hooks.  What do you think?

Meet Kait

Yesterday I released another necklace in my new 1920s Collection available at my Etsy shop, Eva M Designs.  Kait, as you can see below, is simple, soft and lovely.  I named her for a friend from high school who embodied this classic look – a long chain of pearls on antique bronze wire, complemented by (soon to be released!) pearl stud earrings.  I added a few bright Swarovski crystals to add contrast and an antique bronze leaf to tie in a second strand of smaller pearls.

Kait measures 32 inches (81 cm) of beads with another 28 inches (71 cm, 14 inches/side) of ribbon, allowing you to adjust the length as you desire.  Kait would look gorgeous against a dark red satin or navy blue fabric, although she looks just as cute when worn with any garment of contrasting color.

Yesterday I also finished Lucy, another opera length necklace.  Lucy features peach pink freshwater pearls on delicate, dark curb chains.  The contrast is striking.  Though I haven’t released her for sale yet, I’ve decided to share a sneak peek with you!
