When grey is more like mauve

It has taken me almost a year to get over my disappointment of receiving these. Having ordered these freshwater pearls expecting them to be grey for a commissioned item and discovering that they definitely weren't, I put them away in a drawer until this week when I finally decided it was time to make something with them anyway! To my surprise they actually worked beautifully with light amethyst Swarovski crystals. I guess the fact that they hadn't been what I was expecting had just made me look at them as 'not right' and not as something that could be made into something beautiful - A freshwater pearl and Swarovski crystal necklace, bracelet and earring set
