This piece was supposed to go in an entirely different direction! I've been working on a new batch of Fimo roses, something I love doing off the grid since it's so relaxing and fun,- sort of like how I loved playing with clay when I was little...
I had everything laid out and wanted to find something soft and romantic to accomodate those roses (they are in shades of pink!),- however, at some point, not sure where, this project took a u-turn and became a celebration of pearls and crystals, looking quite bridal I think! I am in love with cream pearls. It does make me contemplate yet again if I should be focusing on bridal jewelry in general.

The small roses embellished under the center crystals are made of plastic I think...which would normally be considered an sheer abomination in company of Swarovski crystals and pearls...lol..but hey, if it works, why not? I love the tiny roses...they did fit better than the fimo ones I made (which I muuuuch larger). So there! :) Onwards to my next project!
Have a great week everyone!!
