    They all scream together, both the screamers and the little h earrings. Very drool worthy.

    Thank you, Pareltje and pattye!

    Day 318:

    Mother of pearl necklace and Tahitian dangles. These are yesterdayís pearls. I worked hard on my first restringing project and really felt like wearing something light and simple.

    Day 319:

    I just completed my first restringing project! These are ripple pearls purchased from Pearl Paradise a few years ago. I knotted them last year but the gaps between pearls were so big I was embarrassed to share them! They look much better now though thereís still an ugly gap between a couple of pearls toward the clasp. I overestimated the amount of thread I needed to knot the last 4 pearls and had extra length left over. I knotted the strand yet again and the gap is smaller now,though still there. Oh well, Iím enjoying the stringing and practice makes perfect, right?

    This is the spot where I had extra thread and an ugly gap.

    So I redid the necklace and the gap is smaller but still there. I can live with this for now!

    I love how you can wear every color of pearl. Congratulations on the restringing. I love pearls peeking out of colorful scarves like that. Beautiful.

    I swear I knot every strand 3 times in a row before I'm sort of satisfied with my stringing job. The pearls are lovely and I would have never thought to wear them with T's. What a great combination.

    Congratulations, BN!! Well done! Your pearls and knotting are just beautiful. It took me a looooong time before I could knot a strand and be satified on the first try.

    Your ripples are lovely...the soft peach color is perfect for spring! On restringing, since these look to be larger pearls, you may want to try a heavier weight thread. Did you happen to notice the size of the drill holes? It doesn't look as though the knots are slipping into the holes, but sometimes the weight of the pearls can make the knots slip. After setting the knot, I always hold the entire strand vertically and give one last small tug. Kind of the way Sarah recently demonstrated her stringing on Instagram. The weight of the rest of the strand works to keep the knot placed while adding on the next pearl.
