Claire's pearl necklace inspired by Diana Gabaldon's Outlander book series! I have attempted to make the necklace Diana describes that Jamie gives to Claire on her wedding as is mentioned throughout the book series. I have made this necklace as faithfully similar to Diana's description as possible. Made for fellow Outlanders by your fellow Outlander! :-) I gifted the necklace in the photos to Herself when she came to a MOBY event in Sacramento. She was verra busy Signing A Lot Of Books (about 2000!) and could not open my package, so I have no idea if she liked them or not :-)

"... it was a string of small baroque pearls, those irregularly shaped productions of freshwater mussels, interspersed with tiny pierced-work gold roundels. Smaller pearls dangled from the gold beads." - Diana Gabaldon, "Outlander"

"... I felt in my pocket, checking to see that the pearl necklace Jamie had given me on our wedding day was still safely sewn into the seam of my skirt. It was; the small, irregular beads of the freshwater pearls were hard and smooth under my fingers. Not as expensive as oriental pearls, but it was still a fine necklace, with pierced-work roundels between the pearls. It had belonged to Jamie's mother, Ellen. I thought she would have liked to see it used to comfort his men." - Diana Gabaldon, "Dragonfly in Amber"

I have used the same materials and techniques described in the book that would have been used in the 18th century. Real, natural, small fresh water baroque pearls, 14k gold plated pierced-work roundels. Closed with a 14k gold plated fishhook clasp, who's exact style has been used for literally hundreds of years... especially for pearl necklaces. It's pretty and much more secure than our modern lobster clasps. I hand knotted between each bead just as it would have been done in Jamie's time. The necklace has the slightly primitive and rustic feel of a period piece - when everything was handmade just as this necklace was. This is a classic design that will never go out of style (Outlander fan or no!) and I have made this necklace not only beautiful but heirloom quality.

This necklace is nickel free, all of the metal parts are 14k gold fill.

This necklace was handmade by me with love and care, and will come to you in a lovely gift box that I hand stamp and tie with a ribbon - ready for gift giving!
