beadFX has a new line of Biwa pearls in and I absolutely love them.

The colour options available are beautiful and if I could afford it, I would buy them all.

While teaching the cuff bracelet there on June 20th, I had everyone take a break and let them over to the pearl section of the store to show everyone how fantastic they are.

So while the class was diligently toiling away on their bracelets, I got to work on a crocheted necklace that incorporated the Biwa Pearls, some multicolour freshwater round pearls and some Crystal Golden Shadow Crystallized Swarovski Elements.

For your viewing pleasure are the results.
A big thank you to the photographer, Dwyn of beadFX.

It may look like a torture device, but if you manipulate the pearls just right, it is reminiscent of a Victorian ruffle collar.

okay... maybe you have to squint a little...


  1. I taught there today and I was drooling over those pearls too - I did not buy any, but oh my did they call my name!!! I have to go back tomorrow to finish teaching - I may come home with some in the end!!!!!

  2. Wow, this is seriously gorgeous!
