    JerseyPearl, Cicadalady, thank you)) I just love fiddling with these ones)))

    So here is the temporary rope of baby pearls. Ta-daaaam. It's an OMBRE that's already version Nº2, sorting out lighter pearls was a real nightmare))) *and I considered myself an experienced ombre maker lol*

    So. Who wants to see the bigger pearls thrown in it?)) Ombre bubble rope in natural color pastel akoyas. It even sounds delicious)))

    Wow, Lugano. I love how you made an ombré of those delicate colors and overtones. Amazing. Can you add the big pearls so that they match the overtones of the babies? That would be magical.

    And it should be noted that I am especially fond of that green section in the ombre strand...I'd be tempted to leave it as is and make a coordinating piece (like a tin cup w/gemstones) with the larger pearls.

    Katbran, amti, BWeaves, kalmen22, Cicadalady, thank you)) I will rest my eyes for some time and then add the bigger pearls.. that was quite a tiring ombre) sorting out light coloured bits was rather challenging: never thought I would make an ombre from almost white pearls

    Red, that's exactly how I see it! )) but I'm not sure if it will work out with overtones.. will show the result!

    JerseyPearl, thank you)) I do have quite a few pearls left, but in pink and silver color. I think I will do some baby akoya tin cups later for my etsy and/or the market stall) I will try to throw in the bigger ones, but if it won't improve the look - I can always take them out) I want it to be a unique rare unusual piece for some reason))

    Here are some photos of the finished ombre. I've rearranged it a few more times today, almost went blind but ok, it's sunday after all. I haven't decided where the clasps will be yet, I'm thinking about putting two yellow gold 6mm ball clasps for the strands could be used separate or together, but that depends how it will look after turning into a bubble rope)
