    Purranha, it's as though you read my mind! When I contacted battah about my Lilia's Treasures strand, she happened to send me a picture of herself wearing them. I think they may have been part of her personal collection and at the time, I felt a bit badly buying them off her neck!

    Also, I just want to roll around in the ripples. Is that weird?
    Lol!! No, I completely get it!

    Day 248:

    A few years back, Pearl Paradise had a special on white baroque akoya. I bought these two strands and had one shortened so that I'd have the option of wearing one shorter strand or the two nested together.

    The earrings are metallic white freshwaters, also from Pearl Paradise.

    These pieces are among my favorites-- really versatile and lovely!

    It's just sick how much more I love baroque akoyas over round akoyas. You look so fab in these, BN!!

    Mikis were our top line when I worked in Nordstrom Fine Jewelry. Sold lots of rounds, but when I saw my first baroques, a special order for the dept manager, oh wow! Never bought either, though I won some earrings.

    Pattye, I so totally agree re: baroque akoyas!

    BN, I remember when that sale was on, and deeply regretting not making a purchase. I absolutely love the character these pearls have.

    BN, excellent idea making one shorter than the other! I have used this technique myself and it adds so much versatility. Your akoyas look lovely on you! The baroque shape makes a formal-look, look a bit friendier, if that makes any sense.

    I also regret not buying the white baroque akoyas, but I had not seen them in person back then. BN's are just gorgeous. And I LOVE that they nest.

    Ah, Pearl Sister My own 2 nested baroque akoyas are a favorite of mine too! Only difference is we used orbit clasps because they're easier for me to open or connect as a rope. The luster on that batch was incredible, and the soap bubble orient ... amazing. That deep wine grape plum burgundy ??? sweater looks exquisite with those pearls!!!

    I never tire of seeing your baroque akoya, both the white and blue. Gorgeous!

    The burgundy sweater makes the sharp luster of the baroque akoyas even sharper. I really love this combo. Thanks to you now I see what soap bubble effect is all about - never seen it IRL because I only have one strand of white round AA akoyas.

    Wow the luster contrasted with the color of your sweater is so striking, BN! Just gorgeous. I feel like I'm running out of superlatives!
