This necklace is a bold and slightly creepy take on the classic pearl necklace, inspired by a combination of antique Lover's Eye jewelry and the trophy collecting some serial killers do, and what they may do with their collections. Each eye is blue--as killers tend to have desired traits that link each victim--but is also a slightly different shade from the others to seem as though each one could belong to a different victim.

I painted each iris with acrylic paint and coated them in two coats of varnish for protection and shine. Both the backs and fronts of each pearl have a painted iris so that as they turn and flip while being worn, each will always resemble an eye. I used pearl-knotting so that each pearl is secure, insuring against the mayhem that comes with a beaded strand breaking. The pearls are freshwater, and the sterling silver clasp had a double locking mechanism for added security.
