Arms Tiered Pearl Necklace & Earrings

When I took Sfandra as my Apprentice, we exchanged gifts. Hers to me was a tiered pearl necklace and matching earrings, show at left below. But as these items were made as a surprise, she couldn't check the fit on me. As a result, the pearl necklace didn't lie quite right on my neck, and bunched up.

So I reworked the necklace to better fit my neck, as shown at right above. I couldn't find any three-hole spacers large enough to allow the silver leaf beads to hang freely between the tiers. So instead I used oversized bugle beads.
