Another necklace finished. This one's for my mom, for Mother's Day.

A necklace of ivory-colored pearls separated by small coppery shiny bits, interspersed with occasional amber beads that have been marked off with gold-and-crystal spacers on either side, draped over a light tan object on a white background.

All the beads in this are manmade. The pearls are glass pearls from Celestial Crystal, and the amber is synthetic resin. The spacers are copper-colored glass (between the pearls) or crystal bits embedded in metal-plated rondelles (around the amber). I think there is one natural stone anywhere on the necklace and you can't see it because it's a 4mm bead that's next to one of the necklace's ends; it's on the other side of the support object.

Which... is a fancy way of saying that I have no real photography tools so I used a leftover piece of posterboard bought for the March for Science protests as the background, propped it up against my bottles of oil and kitchen scale on the counter next to my stove, and draped the necklace over a double-width roll of masking tape because I had it nearby, then put the camera on the countertop as a substitute for a tripod.

At least it was an actual camera this time rather than my phone.

Gorgeous! And such a sweet Mother's Day gift. <333

(Ooh, and by the way, if you have any sea glass projects around and about that you're looking to sell, please let me know — I would love to donate some dollars your way!)
