This pearl bracelet with vintage rhinestones would be especially beautiful worn on a wedding day!
Creamy and light colored pearl bracelet is made from vintage rhinestones, new and old glass pearls and beads. Each metal plate has a square shaped Czechoslovakia rhinestone with four tiny glass stones, plates are connected with pearl links.
Note that the rhinestones are old and have a cloudiness due the aged foiling, therefore give a very subtle glow. Bracelet is 17,5cm (6 3/4 inches) long. Extender chain allows to add up to 3cm. If requested it is possible to make it shorter.

I practice a lot and every time I come up with a new design or color combination I make an example piece so I can see if it works with whatever I'm at. Not everything make it to bigger jewelry pieces so in time I'll gather a sum of motifs that start to pile up. My working table gets messy very quickly and so I need to find a place for them.
So does need a place any rhinestone or bead that is left on my table. Using them in whatever design I can come up with will add more motifs that need their place. The easiest way to use these odd motifs is in hair pins - no need of pairs like in earrings.
I grouped the hair pins by color: blue rhinestone hair pins, red rhinestone hair pins, assorted green pink purple and the rest went into assorted colors. All of the hair pins are possible to remake in similar design, so if there's something sold and you want to buy just let me know.
Sometimes it happens that the whole process starts to move backwards and the motif from leftover rhinestones and beads will trigger a new piece of jewelry.
I really liked the motif with clear vintage square rhinestone, cream pearls and ivory glass beads. And so I made a Pearl bracelet with vintage rhinestones. This motif design became one of my favorite one. It's so odd when things turn out this way :)

Phew, the time really flies! I have so much to show you! First I just have to share the most gorgeous vintage rhinestones I bought. These were made by Swarovski and are still in original package with K. S & Co writings.
The faceting in square shape is crisp and sharp! The color is marked "Rauchtopas" for smoked topaz in German. But it doesn't look anything like color "Smoked topaz" Swarovski is producing today. These stones have the softest color more likely to be described as champagne or such. It reminds me of the citrine stones in antique jewelry.
