The inspiration: I've always liked the idea of adding pendants to pearl necklaces. I like pearls very much, but still haven't found a way to wear them out-of-garb without feeling very much like and old lady and/or very much too ...pale, fashion-wise. Still haven't given up. In garb though, I am happy to wear them, and a pendant really light things up. This time, I was lucky enough to find a set of cheap earrings that was possible to dismantle fairly easily, as well as I finally found a way to use a set of pearl earrings I bought ages ago. My ears are not pierced, so any earrings making it into my stash are destined for destruction.
Fabric: No - Yes, am cheating here!
Year: 1450-1550, at least inspired by
Notions: Two pearl necklaces, three sets of earrings (of which I used 1+1+2 earrings)
How historically accurate is it? The idea is period, the actual stuff not so much. Perhaps 50%.
Hours to complete: 2
First worn: Not yet
Total cost: About 32 euros for both, but lot of supplies left over for other projects.
