To celebrate The King of Threadneedle Street blog tour HAPPENING NOW, I’m giving away this Victorian-style genuine freshwater pearl jewelry set, including a 2-strand necklace, 2-strand bracelet, and sterling silver earrings. You see a variety of lavender, silver, and peacock pearls, faceted onyx, and bicone Swarovski crystal beads. The ear hooks are sterling silver.

Jewelry making is a hobby I’ve enjoyed for years. When writing the scene in The King of Threadneedle Street where Andrew gives Alysia a rare lavender pearl jewelry set, I went wild with my imagination. I wish I could recreate the masterpiece I imagined for the story, but I hope you’ll enjoy this more practical version I made for the blog tour giveaway. Here’s where the inspiration came from:

Before Alysia dressed for dinner, Marsden delivered a small white case and left without a word. She unfolded the note to see Andrew’s capricious scrawl. He wrote, Please wear these for me tonight. She unwrapped the chocolate truffles and nibbled on one as she opened the lid of the box.She gasped — an elaborate jewelry set glowed in the lamplight.Breathtaking pearls, a smoky lavender color and set in designs she had never seen the like of. The necklace was not merely a strand, but an arrangement that resembled an elaborate tiara, or half of a snowflake. Woven into delicate patterns with graduated-sized pearls, it looked like some priceless artifact discovered in an ancient tomb.Alysia dropped her dressing robe to hold the necklace against her collar. She fastened the clasp and tried on the matching earrings and bracelet. Exquisite. And that he had picked the color to complement her eyes? Romantic. She looked in the mirror to see the luster of the pearls reflecting the lavender facets of her eyes, making them paradoxically smoky and bright. He would like that, she thought.She put away the red taffeta dress laid out on her bed and dug in the back of the wardrobe for the sheer lavender and silver gossamer gown with the dropped sleeves and low-cut back. She checked the ensemble in the mirror and beamed at her reflection; Andrew knew what he was doing.
