Taking the more adventurous of two design options, Mara George initiated this piece to make use of two different strands of pearls, a couple of unwanted diamond set clasps and a plain white gold band. The 18ct yellow and white gold, diamond set, lace stick pendant gathers twenty-three cascading loops of pearls and is suspended from a strand of matt onyx beads fastened with a matching gold lace diamond clasp. Quite a few hours at the bench on this one! The result got a big tick from Mara, who declined packaging to wear it immediately! As one of the last tasks completed for 2009, how rewarding to see this assured and vivacious woman wear the necklace so well.
