The Dark Side (of the Moon?)



OK, not necessarily the moon, but after a month of light, bright colors and pastel pearls, I had the urge to try the opposite, just to see what would happen. (Back story) I spent years of my life in the arts being "dressed up" and "dressed down" all in basic black. I love black! But finding good quality, but affordable dark pearls hasn't been easy. No, they aren't called "black pearls" but they are called "dark peacock" which is the name for the sort of iridescent color that overlays the dark pearl. So I have three strands of these, and when I finally post them, unfortunately, they won't be as budget friendly as the rest of the series. But now that I see how good they look..I'll be scouting for more pearls from "The Dark Side!"

Have a great weekend, and today, you have one more chance to enter our drawing to win your choice of the pearl and silk pieces listed in my Etsy shop...hurry, don't delay a minute longer!!

My husband loves Pink Floyd, so I am going to show him this necklace and tell him I HAVE to have it---for him. :)
