Double strand freshwater pearl necklace

I wish I had a bust! Hm, that didn't come out right. :D I mean one of those fake necks you hang necklaces on. Before, I thought of fake necks as display tools, or as models to photograph necklaces, but they'd also be handy while you're working on the piece (as simple as this looks, it can be worn four different ways--two right and two wrong--not counting the fact it's reversible).

This is a stuffed panda, and the neck is too fat. When you wear the necklace, substantially more pearls show on the sides.

Wow, that looks very snazzy. I particularly like the clasp, and I've always been fond of a strand of pearls. I wonder, instead of a colored stone, if you put a lustrous but rough-cut blue stone instead of that dangling pearl, wouldn't that bring out irregular texture of the freshwater pearls, and perhaps, remind one of the waters whence they came? I have no idea what kind of stone, though. A starry pendant might be cool, too. Just a thought... I don't really know anything about jewelry, even the wearing of the stuff.

That is one glamorous panda... : )

A blue stone would be neat!

I'm moving along slowly figuring out this stuff...right now, if I were to substitute anything for the pearl dangle, it would be a black stone (the reasoning is the necklace could then be shlepped over any outfit and still match). But pearls + blue stone sounds beautiful.

I'm kicking myself why I didn't buy more of the pearls. There was a sale, and I was thinking of a single strand design with enough left over to do a bracelet. This turned out to be a pearl-eating necklace. mumbles...
