That pendant is adorable and dramatic and oh, so lovely! I've been hoarding a gorgeous WSS drop for a long while now, trying to figure out what to do with it. Never found a bail I liked for it ... between this tiny keshi "chain" and that golden bail on the green Tahitian, you've given me a couple of really great ideas
and ... velvet ... sigh ...
Glad to help you out with inspiration, Cathy. It sure can be tricky, can't it? I have pearls that I've had for years trying to figure out how to set!
Haha this is good news for me - I have a 4.5-4.75 ring size for my index & middle fingers and 3.5-3.75 for fourth finger. If babynurse ever decide to cull the ring collection, I will have less competition!
Stella hit us hard and we lost internet for the last 24 hours. It's at times like this I realize how dependent we are on electronics. My husband and I woke up this morning, reached for our phones and said "Wha...? STILL no internet...?" I'm exaggerating a bit. *I* reached for my phone and groaned over the absence of internet. My husband reluctantly crawled out of bed to clear the 18" of snow from our driveway. Poor guy.
Thanks, Sea Urchin! The daily threads are a lot of fun. I love the Pearls in Action thread.
Amti, thank you for the kind words re the Golay rope. I will definitely wear it more often and share pics!
Thank you, Pearl Dreams, Pareltje, Katbran, JerseyPearl, MSC, Sue Bee, kalmen, and BWeaves! Soufflé pearls can be so colorful.
BN, we had more snow today than we did from Stella! I'm on the NJ coast, and we had almost all rain from the storm...but this afternoon, a line of snow came through and gave us about an inch. As the crow flies, I'm about 30 miles from midtown Manhattan.
Baby Nurse, I'm just now catching up - I've missed so much beauty! All so magnificent I can't pick a favorite...although that Tahitian ombré rope...doesn't get much better! I also love the small akoya keshi with the brilliant wss pendant, I love them all! Thank you for being such an inspiration!!
Tahitian rope from Pearl Paradise and Tahitian studs from Golay Singapore. The rope is 52" long and made up of 8-11mm silver/blue baroque Tahitians. The studs are 10-11mm rounds with strong blue overtones.
