    Default Holiday Wish List

    I thought it would be fun to share the Tahitian pearl items on our holiday wish lists.

    Mine is this amazing bracelet from pattye:

    I was rather naughty and woke up at 4 a.m. this morning to buy stuff.

    I'm drooling over this next one, but I think it's too heavy for me. Besides, Sarah's still working on my waterfall rope.

    I really should not have bought anything, as I haven't paid off the plumber yet.

    I bet a lot of us could recreate this Mikimoto look with pearls in our stash!

    I have enough pearls to keep me happy for now, but want to be able to shorten some of my necklaces when wearing tops with higher necklines.

    The oval pearl shorteners I already have weren't doing the trick-- the pearls slipped through. So I ordered a peanut shaped pearl shortener. My big Black Friday purchase.

    This shortener will work for my Tahitians, but also for my WSS which graduate to 9.1mm. For that matter I should be able to use it to shorten my round tourmaline beads necklace, my amethyst beads, etc.

    Getting more use out of what one already owns is a money-saving alternative to buying more stuff.

    I wasn't up as early as BWeaves, but I did nab my favorite of the new Kojima necklaces. I've been admiring Baby Nurse's Kojima station necklaces, and this Kasumi drop and pink/red tourmaline and spinel necklace had me at hello.

    In addition, I had this 48 inch multi-color Tahitian rope from PP in my cart last night, but I needed to figure out how to use my Pearl Points to pay for it. While I was waiting to chat with PP, it sold. That's o.k. Jeremy himself came on to chat and answer my questions, interrupting his Thanksgiving dinner of King Crab and prime rib. I had the traditional turkey myself.

    I hope the new owner loves this piece.

    Somehow, my Tahitian collection is lacking stud earrings, although I do have several pair of dangles! These will make me sooooo happy~

    from Sarah at Kojima, yummy Keshis!

    From Josh and Celeste at Kamoka, natural color chocolate studs Just tuck these in a box of Mrs. See's~

    OR this eye-catching pair from Pearl Paradise, 11-12 mm studs, if only my ear lobes will hold them!

    And from Sarah at Oceans cove, I can't decide, either these big beauties, OR this edgy mismatched pair

    BWeaves - great choices. I was debating the akoya keshi necklace too. Enjoy!

    Super choices, BWeaves and Red!

    PD, I've been restringing/shortening my strands also and changing out clasps. Feels so good to have them ready to wear and the correct length.

    BWeaves and Red, your new creations from Sarah are wonderful! Can't see PP website because my browser is too old (and I can't update it because I have forgotten my admin password… cough, sputter, sigh). I did go out to JoAnn and got 2 new Ott Lights on super sale, so will at least be able to see what I'm working on

    Red: Kojima had toooo many things I am lusting after, and I really shouldn't be buying anything, but . . .

    eclecticgrl : Baby Nurse wore a keshi strand she got from Kojima with some round pearls a week or so ago, and I was blown away by how good it looked. So I've been eyeing this keshi strand ever since, and decided to try it out. The T-tin-cup looks really nice. I have another one from Kojima which I love, so I'm sure I'll love this one, too.

    Pattye: Go for the mismatched pair. I swear, my mismatched T studs go with absolutely everything.

    And I have been drooling over the Etsy shops of Ocean's Cove and Eric's carved pearls, too.

    Love this thread! I have way too many things on my wishlist.

    Dipping my toes into the world of studs, which I ordinarily don't wear - these are kind of a fun way to wear them: https://www.pearlparadise.com/collec...arring-jackets

    I'm also snagging a couple of the Tahitian solitaire necklaces on the rubber cord - I was sold when I saw Mia wrap them around her wrist, I love that style. AHEM Jeremy you should make bracelet-length ones so we can have more pearls-per-wrap

    Really love this bangle, too: https://kojimapearl.com/collections/...l-brass-bangle

    Not pearls, but I've been lusting over this fluorite necklace at pattye's: https://www.etsy.com/listing/5438121..._home_active_7

    Digging these stackers, too: https://www.etsy.com/listing/5132628...home_active_57

    LOL, so you are the one who saved me from myself! I had been eyeing that Tahitian drop and keshi necklace on Sarah's site, but it was gone when I got up at 6 am.

    That blue South Sea Mikimoto look is stunning. I still want a large blue SS pendant.
