Custom Commissions Interested in a custom creation for a special occasion? Select from the designs and colors below, and contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the neck measurement of the piece you'd like. Just put a ribbon or string around your neck where you want the inside of the necklace to fall--do you want it right at the base of your neck? Do you want your collarbone to show? Do you want a deep v-neck shape? You will receive a quote for approval and estimated timeline -- cost will vary according to types, color, and size of pearls, complexity of design, and clasp materials, but you can get a ballpark idea from looking at the examples.
Jewelry Design at the Grammys!
eighth blackbird pianist Lisa Kaplan wore a woven pearl armband designed by Sandra to the 2012 Grammys. The piece includes a beaded bird skull, and peacock-colored freshwater pearls. eighth blackbird won a Grammy for their most recent CD -- Lonely Motel -- in the small ensemble classical category.
NEFERTITI Inspired by an Egyptian queen, this elegant design will enhance any neck and make you feel like royalty! This design is woven in concentric bands of color made up of round pearls followed by long oval or rice pearls and finished off with smaller round pearls. Back clasp can be hook and eye, lobster claw or a faced clasp.
Color choices will vary with availability of pearls, as these require pearls that are better matched for size and color than the other designs. Shown here are a peacock and silver necklace, a green and gold piece, and a rich cream piece. These are designed to float at the base of the neck, so be sure to specify the inside length that will fit you when ordering. Price range shown: $185-$275.
WOVEN COLLARS Natural pearls woven into organic collars really make an artistic statement! Collars can be uniform (same length all the way around -- like the cream one) or longer in front like a chestplate. Clasp can be in back (like the cappuccino necklace) or on the side (like the peacock necklace.)
Colors: Peacock mix (greys, silver, blacks); cappuccino mix (coffee & cream colors); white/off-white; peach; yellows; greens; pomegranate (garnet red) and others as available. Price range of those shown from $185 - $295.
RIPPED PEARLS These free-form designs feature a combination of woven bands and graceful loose strands. I prefer an asymmetrical side toggle clasp for these, but they can also be made with a back clasp. Choose black, white, cream, peach, or ask for other colors--I may have them in stock or be able to get them.
Shown here in white pearls with sterling flower toggle clasp and black pearls with sterling rope clasp. Price range--about $175-$275.
STARBURST The Starburst design explodes in color, with freestyle spikes of pearls that move and shake when you do--so go out dancing! Usually closes in back, with a lobster clasp, hook & eye, or toggle clasp.
Colors shown here include Fruit Salad (cantaloupe, honeydew, banana and strawberries); Citrus (lemon, lime, and orange); and cappuccino (coffee and cream.) Other colors available -- can include purples, reds, peacock, greys, greens, golds, etc. Also a great design to incorporate other stones such as amber, quartz crystal, onyx, amethyst, garnets, etc. Price range of pieces shown -- from $175-$295.
