    Hey, don't be so hard on yourself. I think it looks fab! I have been wondering what a thick chained tin cup would look like but just didn't have any thick chains around that I could cut up. I would love that in a rope! The luster on those pearls is tdf!

    Well, I love your necklace MSC. But I'd also be inclined to make it into a bracelet with that wonderful wide chain...actually a double bracelet if you have enough length. And the large small contrast of the pearls is also really great.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that necklace MSC - I think it looks great. That said, I think JP has a good idea .. that chain , for some reason, does make me think of a bracelet .

    Beautiful pearls BN

    MSC - great job on the necklace! The pearls are gorgeous, so colourful. The chain is perhaps a tad chunky for the pearls but it does look good.

    A number of designers are showing heavier chains with pearls. Seems to give a more casual look in many cases, which I like. MSC, that chain is fab and so are the pearls; I feel the look will grow on you.

    And thank you to Everyone else for sharing their June beauties! LOVE your unique combinations, MSC, BN, JP, Lmgarden and Sanippy!

    Thank you, amti, Jersey, Sanippy and Pattye! I was actually thinking of converting to... earrings! Though now that I'm thinking about it, bezel set mabes between the chain sections would look fab (especially if they were to be SoC mabes!). Well, the future hold infinite time for that stuff... The necklace as it is, is starting to grow on me, but I don't think I'll keep it as is in the long term. The front three pearls are my favorites though, so brightly colored blue and green!

    I like that chain on your tin cup. It's different and has presence.

    I took photos of the T's I've worn the last two days, and now can't find them. Oh, well, you've seen them before. I'm trying to get used to wearing my T's with my summer clothes.

    I adore your tribute, lmgarden, very fitting to wear such a timeless necklace. Just lovely!
    Sanippy, your lavender studs give my hearty eyes every single time! And now the pendant to match!!
    BN, that tassel, i L-O-V-E that tassel!! And the tiny pearls too. Of course, the tiny pearls.

    Thank you everyone!! I have to give all the credit to Jersey for sourcing me that spectacular green pearl. I loves it like Gollum loves the ring

    This morning I got up and started on chores, but then it got repressively hot, so I sat down for a bit and made a necklace. I had originally planned to do this in rose gold, but it looks like I won't have a budget for that for a long while (my work contract is coming up and it doesn't look like there's funding to renew, boooooo). BUT! My bff gave me a bunch of old gold jewelry that her aunt had hoarded, so I had this old mens bracelet and neck chain in 14kt yellow gold and thought why not? I broke it up into sections and wire wrapped a small parcel of Gambeir Rikitea pearls along with some keshi in between. If I'm being honest, I don't totally love it, but it's alright and I'll wear it for now.

    Newberry has a long tin cup on a MAJOR chain that I've been coveting since last Ruckus. I've never seen another like it, because most vendors use weeny chains for tin cups.

    I was out in the field on a very hot, humid day yesterday, photographing bears. No pearls worn yesterday!
    Today is Vietnamese multi-colored akoya and silver tin cup chain and Mom's little akoya buttercup earrings
