    Default Todayʻs fun

    Hereʻs something Iʻm playing with. These are yellow Thai sapphires with gold spacers, with a South Seas and Tahitian pearl. I may change the pendant though, itʻs not hanging right. Thatʻs why I like beading, because if you donʻt like something or it doesnʻt work, you can redo it. I have tied a strand of opal beads before, and it took me three times until I was satisfied. Good thing it was for someone else, because Iʻm never satisfied. You canʻt untie the way you can clip and restring

    I like it, Waimeamomi,
    Especially the pendant. And I like how well the yellow compliments the Tahitian pearl....

    I agree! The colors look great together. And it's a good dress up or dress down piece.

    Thanks, again. I have different pics at different places in the forum of other pieces. this is what I did yesterday when I moved away from my new pearl passion for a little while. This is all whiskey quartz with vermeil findings. The quartz really is 2 shades, but very pretty! Also this is an opal and Tahitian necklace with 14k beads. These are Australian jelly opals and the quality of the Tahitian isnʻt as nice as some, but they look good together. 4mm opals, 12mm(?) pearl. The silver grey color is the more accurate, but it does go darker in some light. Thanks for the support

    Today's fun part 2. I got a day off and I went to town. The other pieces are on the gems & pearls thread. The tourmaline is watermelon, large graduated, that I got in NYC. The turquoise is sleeping beauty mixed with sunstone. Fun, fun, fun.

    Oooooh! I like the Tahitian with opals combination. And the watermelon tourmaline is scrumptious!

    Wow, lovely designs all. I really love the jelly opals with the Tahitian necklace. And the tourmalines, and the SB turquoise, and...are those some of the keishis? Beautiful. Great work!

    Thanks everyone! Once again I was inspired by PG to get in there and get to work. The opals and pearl sold this summer, I'm going to try and some more because I love them together.

    Heidi - Those aren't the SS keshis, but larger freshwater ones. You can check out more pics of them on the pearls and gems thread that's going.
