    Purrhana, I love what you have done with your GSSPs- all the stylings are fantastic. I especially love the flowers that give a visual focal point. And, just the simple harvest strand with the leather jacket is just understated elegance and classy. You have given me many ideas!

    Thank you Luvglitz and 2thdktr!

    I've shared extensively my findings in posts from a couple years back and I think that's before you ladies joined PG?
    Here is the link to the flower connector and they have it in all colors - gold silver and rose-gold.
    This particular shop has a lot of beautiful flower findings. Enjoy!

    Oh, beautiful- very thoughtful to provide the link, Purranha. I am not ready to try my hand at stringing yet, but it is on my list to try.

    So, Cathy, thanks to you, I was inspired to style my harvest strand REVERSED today so the poor hidden pearls in the back can come out to play.

    Also, I am scraping my closet for cloth that would go with the GSSP color palette lol. I am usually not a yellow clothing girl but it worked out well today!

    Love this look, Purranha. You could even add a third strand, Maybe an 18" up at the neck?

    OMG lol Red I totally did! I tried it since Newberry had 3 strands. But I didn't like how it turned out as I think the white bbq needs to be a bit longer. I had mine shortened so it can nest with a 16" strand. I'll have to figure out an extension option before giving the 3 layer look another try!

    I love it! You could even hang the enhancer from the shorter strand...

    LOVE IT, Purranha I too have struggled with the clothing issue. Double strand of baby golden Vietnamese akoyas ... triple strand of TINY ombres from Cees, now the GSS Harvest strand ... and I don't look good in, or buy much in the warm, golden - yellow - orange color palette. Hmmm ... more wardrobe work required

    Cathy! I mainly like GSSP with white tops, but have found this light canary yellow and even light heather grey work really well. Baby pastel powdery blue work really well, too! This baby blue with the gssp color palettes i almost mimicking your strand of the multi color vietnamese akoya!
