    My gssp necklace from PP looks darker golden when I'm wearing a maroon top.

    I generally LOVE gold with black, but I didn't love the GSSP on black clothing...

    I love the new tin cup you created with the flower accents. All your different layered looks are great!

    I love my GSS pearls with black clothing. I also love them with many different shades of blue (navy, grayish blue, pale blue, etc.) and also red and burgundy. They look great with white too, but I don't wear white often.

    Purr, I really like all your looks! Love those tin cups!

    I flew into LA yesterday to visit the vault and got to spend some time with lmgarden and Erin. (More pix in the Fiji thread started by Red) Attaching some pix of the other harvest strand with my original strand. The newest strand has some of the blue keshi mixed in. I will probably wear this strand mostly doubled.

    Exactly. Better yet, those two amazing golden keshi at the back of the long strand now end up front and center. Gorgeous.

    Jeg, the styling as a triple is really tasteful.

Hmmm ... more wardrobe work required
    Purple ( and all forms of purple=lavender, heather, mauve, etc) and all then shades and hues of red and blues ( that make up purple) should go with or coordinate with those as it is a complementary color to yellow. Also greens. I do this in my gardening to make things harmonious. I have the same problem, Cathykeshi, I have no yellow or orange clothes because I look awful in them! But even different shades of brown will make them pop. It helps to have a little white accent to help the eye rest a little bit. I have been trying on my harvest strand with different clothes and I find gray is working, too! ( I would love to see your double strand of baby goldens and the triple strand of ombres, hint, hint )

    Thanks for the color wardrobe input ladies! Once the weather gets a little colder here in PA the GSS will go with all the deep reds, burgundies and deeper greens I already own ... summer's more of a challenge! 2thdktr, I think both those necklaces are on PG somewhere ... let me see if I can find them

    Thanks Kay, Red and 2thdktr! I'll have to see how long my neck can handle all those pearls...

    Purr it's not the length but the color that makes it not flow right to the eye. If you want to wear the white at the neck try a white longer tin cup
