    Default New and less new pearls

    I have been going a bit crazy with the pearl collection and wanted to share. I also found a great box that lets me take better pictures. These might not come out the right way, so testing first.

    First photos are of my most recent strand. This is a SS rope, it's soft silvers and lemons/champagnes. The clasp allows me to wear in different ways. Neck shots another time!

    These are 9mm to around 14mm. Second one is upside down, aargh.

    This is part of my collection of strands bought from Kathryn Wyatt at Imogene, a store in Clifton Hill (Victoria, Australia). She is the one that started me on my pearl mania! Otherwise, most of my strands are from Catherine Cardellini, some from Pearl Paradise, and another from Jan Logan (store in Australia). I've taken lots of photos today, hopefully enough download....

    This was the strand that started it all for me...10-12mm, around 38 inches I think.
    The third one is with a new pendant.

    Here is the pendant. It's around 15mm I think. I've also shown it next to my 12-14mm Tahitian strand from Jan Logan.

    Here are more of the new strand. I'm having a real problem getting these off my phone, on to the iPad, then uploading to the site. It's taking ages.
    Photo 2 was taken on my husband's iPhone and the colours look different. His phone seems to wash out the colour, and mine saturates the colour just a tiny bit. That photo from the iPhone shows the new strand next to another new strand- this one is the one shown at the end. It's a SS keshi strand from Catherine Cardellini, and they go together beautifully.
    You can see I had a go at a neck shot. Not my thing I'm afraid!

    Here are a couple of photos of my third Imogene strand. This goes up to 16mm and is maybe around 42 inches. The three Imogene strands are very special to me.

    Thank you . Unfortunately I have problems with neck shots - I just can't take them! I'll dig some out from earlier posts...
    Last photo is my son modelling the rounder Tahitians.

    Thank you. I tend to wear as ropes because I like to look down at them, but taking photos of a long rope is where taking photos gets tricky.

    The colours of your round Tahitian strand is so amazing!! And the sequence of the colours of thos strand makes the strand so very pleasing to the eye.

    Fiona, you have a stunning collection. The Jan Logan Tahitians are absolutely amazing and I really love your new SSP rope.

    Here are more baroque SS from Catherine Cardellini. The first photo shows a gold and white together. This particular golden yellow doesn't do anything for my skin tone, but with the white nested above it's fantastic.
    The second and third photos show another golden inside the white. This is much softer golden yellow in real life and is gorgeous on my skin. Both the golds have colour changes on the pearls where they are bicolour. I really like that effect.
    I do think my camera is saturating the colours a little. I've not done anything to the photos myself.
