Use freshwater baroque pearls to make a baroque pearl necklace. A baroque pearl is an irregular (as opposed to round) shaped pearl.

A classic strand of round pearls is very beautiful and sophisticated.

Interesting and Modern

But, I think that a pearl necklace made of baroque pearls is much more interesting and modern.

Now, add the fact that you can learn to hand knot your own pearl necklace and you're in for some very cool and satisfying pearl jewelry making.

I hand knotted this strand of gorgeous dyed red baroque pearls! Red happens to be my favorite color.

How Are Baroque Pearls Formed?

Baroque pearls come in many different shapes and colors.

Their shape is irregular because the pearl farmer uses natural mantle tissue from a mollusk to "seed" the mollusk into growing an irregularly shaped pearl.

Round pearls are the result of the mollusk being seeded with a round mother-of-pearl bead.

What Colors are Available?

Freshwater pearls can be naturally found in shades of white, pink, plum, peach and purple.

Pearls are dyed to get the many other beautiful colors available today for making jewelry.
