    Hi Fiona!

    Thank you for posting the Fireball pendants! I really like the 'golden' one on you! I appreciate you posting and the luster / color are unique on each one. I thought about purchasing on PP, but since I am such a petite person, I was worried about the size and how they would look on me. So posting really helps.

    Thanks for sharing so many photos of your beautiful new pearls. I am staggered at all the great choices you have. Pendants are very versatile and I prefer to wear them when it's really hot. Yours will suit any outfit. And the long Tahitian keshi - sigh.

    Yes, the fireballs and the Tahitian keshi rope are stunning. It seems there is no end to wonderful and creative pearly pieces.

    Thank you for sharing your collection.

    Fabulous collection! What light box are you using to shoot the pictures? The pearls are stunning and my favorite is the round Tahitian strand with Sarah's akoya keshi mix that is a twin with Jeg's strand.

    Thank you for your kind comments everyone. I'm on a real bender at the moment, it's a worry. Poor Sarah from Kojima has been fielding a million emails from me as well. I'll have more to show in a couple of weeks. The oceanic style necklace from Kojima (the twin of jeg's strand) has the most lustrous pearls and now I'm eyeing off everything! I've bought more and am feeling extremely guilty but THEY ARE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL. I've had some success with getting reviews for a book I wrote so I'm thinking of each piece as a reward per review. It's all a bit forced but I'll take the excuse.

    Amti, my lightbox is just a box that my husband's stupidly big watch box came in. One side folds down, and the interior has a kind of light foam covering. I was thrilled to repurpose it because it's much better than any of the surfaces in our house for pearl photographing. Well, actually there's this great spot on top of the microwave oven but that doesn't make for nice photos in general!

    Hi 8mm. I'm short (5 ft 2 inch) but not petite per se, at least not these days. I love big pearls, and I'm only really moving to smaller pearls now. I go for the whole statement necklace thing at work - I found that not only do I love the pearls but the effect downplays my bust. The nature of my work means that's a good idea to be a bit dressed up as well.

    My view on clothes and jewellery also fundamentally changed after I turned 40. So maybe it depends on your age to some degree. When I was younger (and smaller) I only wore dark and plain colours, and my jewellery was low key at best. I discovered pearls and colours at 40 and now feel comfortable wearing them.

    This is a much delayed and incomplete update. First, I've been buying earrings from Kojima. They are fantastic. I've never worn long earrings before and I'm loving it.

    OOOOO, gorgeous. I was wondering where all those went to. I had been oogling them on the Kojima site.

    Gorgeous earrings! I especially love the GSSP pair and the fireball/feather? Silver white pair!
