Carolyn has a great collection of many things. One thing she had many of was pearls, and you know Carolyn and jewelry! This bracelet is covered in natural colored pearls, except for the purple one, it has been dyed that color. Carolyn said that the color was just too fun not to add. The only problem with pearls is that they have very small holes for stringing. Carolyn had to drill a larger hole in every pearl in order for them to fit an eye pin, then thread and twist each one before attaching them to the bracelet. Such determination! It is gorgeous Carolyn!
