    Default What should I do with all these??

    Ooohhh went home from work n found a package. Opened it n voila...pearls with very nice color! The blue baroque akoya look like psychedelics fukushima rat poop. I lovee it!! The Fijian are
    Blue...green..copper...goldenish...ohhh my..my...what should I do with it??? Ring or pendant?? Or both?? Maybe pair it with small colored gemstones...topaz..peridot..maybe citrine?? Ofcourse set all in yellow gold to give more color pop! I just took pics of them thinking maybe round blue n baroque blues together? Or..graduated rounds or...make an extra long pendant with all of them! If anyone got Idea please turn em in! Planning to set it next month.
    Btw..got these from Cees. Since everybody been having a Cees fever so I figure to poke my head in n contacted the virus!
    Ohhh yeeasss I also grabbed a strand of Tahiti from Cees. It's not yet arrived but he gave me a photo of it. 13.20 mm to 11 mm. Mine Its the upper strand. I want to insert like maybe gold spacer for every 5 pearls...n get a clasp..but I don't want any old clasp...must be a fab clasp..dunno what it is yet but fun to think about! So pleaseee throw in sum Ideas!

    All stunning pearls, but those Fijian pearls are stunning. I see a pendant for the biggest one, a ring with the next one, and the three smallest set into a bracelet. Love the colors, the blue, the brown and the Fijian greens.

    Default The Tahitian strand.

    Well I just got an idea for what I want to do with the Tahitian strand.

    Ill post it in here so I can remember the steps I need to do. First I will canibalize one of my necklace component.
    1. I got this golden baroque Southsea pearls that I almost never wear. I dont really like this necklace. Its gold on gold so no visible contrast. The necklace have 13 22k gold n diamonds spacers. I will break the necklace and take the spacers, keep the pearls for something else. Then I will use the spacers for the new Tahitian. Put 1 spacer every 2 or 3 pearls. Name:  20170827_173555.jpg

    2. I actually ordered a ring to be made for me in the form of gold flower with big gold pearl in the middle. The pearl have 1 black dent on the underside but it will be drilled n set into the flower so wont be visible. I told the jeweller dont made that into a ring, instead make that into a big flower clasp with 1 gold loop on each side. N he said ok because they only start to produce the petals so no problem with that. The example of the flower is like in the photo, but it will be a clasp and it will be bigger. The golden pearl is bit big, 10.22 gr I honestly dont know the mome for that or how many mm but I want the petals to show not covered by the pearl.

    3. After the clasp done then I will assemble the necklace. Clasp Will be done in 3 more weeks. Ill post of the actual Tahitian strand after I will recieve it on my doorstep on Tuesday. This can be called as Necklace project no.2.
