I have truly fallen for the Downton Abbey craze, and I couldn’t be more delighted. I recently signed up for Netflix and spent most of this past weekend catching up on Season 1. I am so in love with the series that I even beefed up my subscription so I could get two DVDs at a time.
I’ve you’ve read my post about Junebug’s origins, then you know I’m a huge fan of programs that take me on a fashion journey through time. Downton Abbey takes you back to the turn of the 20th Century, just after the sinking of the Titanic. It was a time filled with fabulous hats and even more fabulous jewelry.
I’ve seen quite a few pearls in this production and was inspired to make my own pearl necklace. I tried to keep the dainty style of the early 1900s, but I wanted to funk it up a little bit. So I used pearls in the lovely pastel colors that promise to be a huge hit this spring.
I call this Not Your Mother’s Colorful Pearl Necklace. It’s my take on an old classic. You like?
