Pearl Beaded Choker
Designed By Julie A. Bolduc
This choker is made to match the Pearl Beaded earrings and Drawstring bag also available on this site. All three of these pieces would look great together as part of a Wedding ensemble. These items could also be made in other colors for the bride's maids or even for a formal event.
