    Talking My south sea tin cup summer project

    Maybe some of you have seen my post partly about my new project in the SS forum, but I thought I start here a new thread, maybe I can get a few more options.

    Originally I wanted to buy a big WSS enhancer pendant. A few of you have posted about your good experiences with Pearl Society, so I just browsed through their eBay shop. As it is, I quickly realized, they have a big selection of golden SS also. Although I have never liked yellow gold and golden pearls bevor, somehow a bug have bitten me, and I just had to order a few golden pearls, and of course not a WSSP but GSSP pendant. This is how it goes with pearly girls.

    So these are the items which I ordered and are already in Vienna at customs. I hope to get the this week sometime:

    The pendant:

    I was really considering if I should use silver or yellow gold vermeil chain, and I still haven't decided actually, but I'm really tending to use yellow gold vermeil, to achieve a completely different look, than my other tin cups. Can you maybe show me your south sea tin cup?

    By the way, someone posted here about eikopearls, sorry, I really forgot, who it was. If you read it, please chime in! I would like to thank you for inspiration! These I have found on the website of Eiko pearls, I think they are stunning:

    I have just ordered a few Tahitians from Wen, I even may go for a tincup with all the three colors, white gold and black.

    Asurazzy your tincup with the rose colored pearls is beauty! I'm really curious for neck shots!
    Regarding layout of my new tin cup I'm planning a long necklace, at about 80 cm, i.e. 32 inch. Maybe I make an other one with the Tahities, but at first I have to see them altogether, to decide.

    I love the mixture of different chains used in those tin cups. Are you going to do something similar? Looks like you're going to have a great time making necklaces!

    I love tin cups and have many. The chains of the ones you showed are wonderful. I don't know which one I would choose. Great pearls too. With the length you have chosen to make, can you double it with ease? I find I really like the option of being able to wear it long or doubled. Post lots of pictures when you get all the parts and put it together.

    Newberry I normally wear my long necklaces never doubled, I don't like that I always have to adjust them. I have a 90 cm Tahiti tin cup, an I could wear it doubled, but the layers never look like I would like to have them.
    It's really hard to find the right materials, almost impossible to find chains like this. I just have found yet a connector piece, but I'm still looking for the circles. This is the connector:

    It's not as sophisticated that the ones on the pictured items, but still a filigree connector. I just need really nice hammered circles.

    I like that connector. What makes you examples is the texture of the chains. You might look for a ready made used chain on ebay that you could cut up.

    I have expected it to be a little bit deeper gold, but I still like it. The size is big enough, now I know, what size I would like to have in WSS and Tahiti.
