An EYEFUL of Pearls and Gemstones at Patricia Saab Designs

Where DOES it all start? In my busy home studio where pearls and gemstones find each other with a little help from me. Matchmaker~that's my role.

Whether knotting pearls into long ropes or wire wrapping flowing, simple, balanced pieces of jewelry, my goal is to draw you in for a closer look.

Pearls and organic gemstones have that magnetic appeal for me, perhaps they do for you also. Enchanting the eye with their subtle colors, glowing from within, holding us spellbound by slight differences, as only gifts from Mother Nature can.

The dark charcoal/black patina on sterling silver chain and findings is hand applied and polished. The contrast with pearls and gemstones looks informal, shiny and rich, too, quite different from the oxidation of tarnished silver.

The designer's journey means learning, exploring, experimenting~always. Beader's Secret thread evolved from a search for a knotting medium stronger than silk but offering a wide choice of colors. Other knotting and stringing supplies include needles, french wire (gimp) and PowerPro braided bead thread.

Custom knotting, restringing and restyling available by request.
