It all just kinda came together. Found these gorgeous faceted freshwater peals that are impossible to describe. They glow and they shimmer and they remind me of pomegranates. The cubic zirconia drops are actually red and not orange as the camera kept trying to decide that they were, bringing out the brighter reds in the pearls. It was a totally separate idea to make the chain; I'd been wanting to do that one for quite a while and finally gave in... then combined them. I also had two pearls left at the end, so... I made earrings.
