    Default My cheapo WSS bracelet.

    Hi everybodeehh! I just got my cheapo white southsea pearls bracelet I bought from etsy. The vendor name is TheGypsyPearlCo.

    I bought it for 170 US$. I like it cause its baroques n BIG. Size from 12.3 to 15.58 mm. It have 13 pearls in the bracelet. Maybe Ill take it apart and turn some of the pearls into earrings or something. Its not high quality but I really like it. The tahitian bracelet I also bought it from them. Its low quality but big with nice color.

    Anyway..thats my report for tday!

    It would be difficult, asurazzy... If my carved pearls don't satisfy you at their prices, that doesn't matter : it's your own taste and not negotiable. You like cheap, and my work is not, that's simple. Anyway, my pearls must be appreciate as fine objects, first, not only to make the show.
    Now, you can't imagine the real work that they give me, between carving and manage everything around : the only count of hours makes my prices lower than these of a plumber! That while normally, my pearls would have to be so more priced as unique pieces of art, because price of art is out of a working time question. Just I must wait to meet enthusiasts knowing real creation value, and, first, making difference between art and craft.

    Haiiyaaaa I was just kidding.
    But...Ohhhhh Im the kind of person who does not knowing about real creation and value huh?? I can not aprreciate a fine object? What kind of fine object that can not make the show anyway?
    I like cheap because im a poor pearl buyer that cant spent much on expensive things. Im a working class that have to pay bills. I like cheap things that looks expensive. Worth the price. Not sure your things looks the price tags tho. As you said I'm not sophisticated enough to appreciate your creation. So better spent what little money I have on something else like galatea.

    Please, keep calm, Asurrazy : when I talk about the difference to do between fine object and the show, it's not at all to attack you! I have said that I appreciate your creative feeling to choise your jewels, and I really think what I say. So, maybe you might find an other artistic work better for you than mine, even I wish you that! It is not a question of sophistication, just to decide to pay the price for something you love, but sometimes, it's not possible. I have the same problem, myself, with pearls I should want to buy for carving, because it would be my right feeling, but I can't... Now, you talk to me about an other carved pearl supply... More expensive that mine, even if, sure, carvers working these serial productions will never become rich, doing that. Other exemple, with certain faceted pearls : we can appreciate or not, I do, but to pay 500 dollars once, selled by ten minimum, seems to me a little expensive for a serial mechanical production. So, you are not sure that my things are on the right price, but it would be discussed for so many other things...

    Come at me bro! Kidding again.
    Ya so sorry Eric that I'm not yet in that majestic level of appreciation or understanding of the artistic real sophisticated value of your arts.

    I'm just a pure consumer here. You are talking to a person that purely will only buy pearls. I'm am not an artist, not reseller. Just a pure potential consumer. I work hard for my money. I Just want to spend it for things I deemed worthy in my own personal opinion and taste. Wish me for a promotion and pay rise on my salary then I'll get all your craft oooh I mean arts! I promiseedddd!

    That's Wilma Flintstone worthy!!!

    I'm starting to view those old cartoons differently. I used to think Wilma was wearing rocks, but now I'm sure they're pearls.

    You are sympathetic Asurazzy. You have a passion and use of many efforts to satisfy it. I like that, because I'm in the same case. It's not important you see me as an artist or a craft, just show me your nice pearls, it will be sufficient. So, I should want to find such nice as yours, maybe priced to allow me to buy them.

    Thank you everybody! I was thinking to make a necklace out of them so I bought another. The other bracelet is smaller tho. 11 to 13 mm WSS. Maybe can make it as graduated necklace??? Ill post pic of it when I get it. I want to learn how to know with this one as well. Beader secrets will deliver to aus right? Should get the white one with it? Silvery or ivory or grey?? Hhhh...now have to think about clasp...

    Eric you know me, I need a wrist slap here and there. I've been eyeing some of your arts there and want some of them. But I gotta wait till I find a fairy god mother to turn my husband into Richard Branson. Then I'll get aaallll your arts! And make pretty things out of them that I can show off.

    I can't wait to see what you make with them.
    Also when your fairy godmother is done turning your husband into Richard Branson ask her to send some of that money magic this way
