Not Your Momma's Pearl Necklace

These pearls were screaming my name as I passed by them at the gem show. I stopped and fondled them, checked the price and continued to look around at the other booths.

I gave myself a lecture about how I shouldn't be at the gem show . . .   how I didn't need any more beads . . . then I turned around and bought the pearls.

What can I say, I didn't have anything like these beads. And I seem to be a sucker for lime green these days. It showing up in everything I make.

Don't they look great with the pink abalone mosaic bead in the center? I fell in love with that bead last year at String a Strand in Chicago.

Now, I need to find the right blouse to wear with the necklace.
