    I agree, the chain seems very well balanced with the size of your luscious pearls. Well done!

    Amti according to item description they are 9-10 mm pearls. I haven't measured them, but some are obviously bigger others smaller. They could be a tad bigger, but I really bought them for the color.

    asurazzy, your necklace turned out great! Yes to neck-shots!

    Katalin, the chain looks perfect, little ovals to echo the shape of the pearl!

    So long story short, I've finished yesterday my tincup. Originally I wanted to incorporate some gold connector pieces, but I haven't had the patience to wait for them, so I decided to use a few moonstones.
    I'm not quite satisfied with the chain, although I've ordered it from the same Etsy vendor, as I have ordered my rose gold vermeil chain. I've ordered a yellow gold vermeil this time with seemingly the same measurements according to the product description , and this is what I've got:

    As you can see, the rose gold chain below is much finer, and I wanted to have this look.

    But at the end I wanted to try it with this chain, and this is the result:

    And an obligatory neckshot:

    If I find a better chain I may redo it at one point, but now I'm going to just wear it, and see, if I like it.

    Oooooh! Lovely necklace! I like the chain with those pearls. The GSS and the WSS work so well together, the moonstones are lovely and your wire wrapping is very well done. The length suits you, as well! Let's see if I can make you right-side up!

    I really like it! And Cicadalady, for being relatively new, you've really caught on! I thought only admins could fix photos.

    Asurazzy, im sure, you can do your own tin cup! Just order some cheap pearls, silver chain and silver wire, buy a few tools, and try it! I love to do it, it really relaxes my mind.
    And most important: look on YouTube for some how to videos, you can find a lot.

    So, after a very long waiting I have got my golden south sea drops from Pearl Society. I mean it was not his fault, but Austrian customs. They have kept them for more than 2 weeks! Crazy! So my pearls are around 11.5 mm in length and are around 10.5 mm wide. I've already assembled them to earrings, I just can't decide, which earhook to use. What do you like more, short or long?

    I took the picture next to my pendant, and there is a color difference, but I don't mind. I wanted to have this deeper color gold, because it sits near to my face, and suits me more than a paler one. But it still goes well also with my SS tin cup.

    Lovely!!! The color difference won't matter when you're wearing them. I think the length of the hook will depend on the scale of your face and neck.

    I like the longer hook just because it's a more interesting shape. It also looks like it will be less likely to work its way out of your ear if the back bumps up against your neck.
