Pearl knotting

Last fall I took a class from my LBS on pearl knotting. We made a bracelet in the class.

And here, showing my awesome non-dominant-hand picture taking ability:

My sister had a milestone birthday this year so I wanted to give her different than another pair of socks (although she might actually have preferred that, but who asked her?). I wanted to use my new skill to make her a necklace, without it looking like something Mrs. Cleaver/Barbara Billingsley would have worn. I thought mixing in PINK crystal might do the trick.

And of course I needed to make matching earrings. I didn’t think to get a picture wearing them, so this one in the box will have to do. My sister is far too camera shy to allow one of her wearing them to be posted.
