Pearls are a very popular bead type for jewelry making. Classic film stars like Audrey Hepburn continue to glamorize pearl jewelry as stylish and classy. Though pearl necklaces are arguably the most popular DIY pearl jewelry projects, jewelry making tutorials for pearl bracelets, pearl earrings, and pearl rings are beloved as well.

Pearls have been a treasured items for a very long time; an abundance of references to pearls can be found in the religions and mythology of cultures from the earliest times. The ancient Egyptians prized pearls so much they were buried with them. In ancient Rome, they were considered the ultimate symbol of wealth and social standing. During the Dark Ages, knights wore pearls into battle, since it was believed that these magical gems could protect them from harm. As recently as the 1900s, pearls were considered only accessible to the rich and famous. Today, with the advent of pearl cultivation, pearls are more available and affordable than they once were.

The value of the pearls in jewelry is determined by a combination of the luster, size, color, symmetry, and lack of surface flaws that are appropriate for the type of pearl under consideration. Luster is the most important attribute, according to jewelers, in determining the quality of pearls. Pearls come in eight basic shapes: round, semi-round, button, drop, pear, oval, baroque, circled, and double bouldered. Pearls have been, and still are, primarily used to make pearl jewelry, but they can also adorn clothing and be used (crushed) in cosmetics.

Pearls can add sophistication - that single strand and simple earrings with the little black dress concept - and they can be fun to wear - this bracelet is fun to wear or with the right outfit sophisticated. Two in one. Special event coming up - not a clue what I shall be wearing, but I shall be wearing thi bracelet, no question

I love this! Great way to get the runway look for less!

I used this pattern to make several bracelets. I did use diffrent beads, like one was just sapphire dhe rest were glass beads. I think this pattern makes great gift and is perfect acessory . I didnt make it so full of beads , but still came out very pretty. I could say is great pattern.

I made this today and it turned out beautifully, although I might look for some Diamante's to scatter between the pearls. I used the same pattern for a bunch of similar glass beads and that turned out pretty nice too!

I have looked for this pattern for a long time I will be making it this weekend.

This is so pretty and really easy. I also think it would look beautiful as a necklace. I'll have to give that a whirl!
