Monday Jewel [Naomi Fujimoto's Pearls]

Happy Monday! 
It was my first time to buy Bead Style magazine and I'm so thrilled that I did.  The cover page sold it to me.  Look at that gorgeous pearl necklace!
A couple of Mondays ago, I wrote a tutorial on an MOP brooch and a blog on how I love pearls so I am uber excited to come across this wonderful project.
This necklace was designed by Naomi Fujimoto where she "mixed metals and irregularly shaped pearls in an elegant statement necklace."

I think she used Mauve colored pearls and combined it with brass and copper shades of metal beads.  I love how bold, beautiful and chunky the necklace is.  The bracelet and earrings are lovely as well.
All I have to do now is find me pearl strands and metal beads.
Happy beading!

Thanks so much for the compliments! I'd love to see a photo of your finished necklace. By the way, at the bottom of the supply list, there is source info listed for the pearls and metal beads, if you're interested. Thanks for the post!
