I like this set almost in spite of myself: it is composed completely of fakes. The pearls are Swarovski, and with the exception of the clasp, the silver is all plated. Even the hematite is not authentic: it is a substance called “Hemalyke” from Fire Mountain Gems.*
I made the necklace a few years back as a throwaway for some event I was going to; I love the way the silver plated balls and bead caps have tarnished slightly, giving the piece a faintly antique look. I made the bracelet in early April, again for an event and to match the necklace; it is not as pretty as the necklace because the silver balls are still shiny and new.
I only wish I had a better picture of them. When you have tremors, it is hard to keep the phone still enough to take a decent picture. iPhoto just cannot help you when the original is slightly out of focus.
*According to what I have read, most hematite on the market is fake, especially the cheap beads. I still use it because I love the steel gray look.
