Vintage Pearl Garland

Vintage Pearl Garland

I didn't like the fake pearl garlands I found.  I had piles of old pearl necklaces from yard sales that I'd saved.  I knew I'd figure out how to use them some day.  I strung them on light weight wire, all mismatched in sizes, types and colors.  I find it more interesting this way.  There are 2 of them that probably total 14 feet.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Creekside Rummager
