    Smile Tahitian keshi studs

    Hi everyone,

    I'm in the market for some tahitian keshi studs. Nothing flattish, more rounded, but gnarly, and definitely keshi. Any ideas where I can source these?

    Edit - I see that Pattye has already mentioned Sarah. Sorry.

    Thanks everyone,

    I've contacted Sarah, but only just a few days ago, so no reply yet. I did see those studs, but am trying to get away from the cornflake look. Thanks though!

    Thanks Pattye. Completely forgot about Kamoka. How is that possible you say? I've never purchased from them, and they went off my radar. I'll give them a go

    Imanit, do you have experience with these sellers?

    Hi Kelly -
    You might try Mana Pearl (http://www.manapearl.com/shop/tahiti...-earrings.html). I have never ordered from them, but I believe other PG members have. I like their site because they show photos of the actual pearls you will be sent, and they include pics of someone modeling them. I just bought a Tahitian keshi strand, and would like to eventually get earrings, so I will be interested to see what you end up with. Please keep us updated!

    Try manapearl.com. They have them from 8mm to 12mm http://www.manapearl.com/shop/tahiti...-earrings.html

    They ship from French Polynesia so return can be cumbersome just like purchasing from Chinese sellers on ebay. You can email and ask for more pictures if you want to be absolutely sure.

    Oh, I just noticed wildonion replied to you. I myself and another PG friend, who doesn't post here anymore, have ordered from them.

    I bought some really cool keshi earrings from Sarah at Kojima. I think she has a thing for keshis. :-)

    If I may suggest an unorthodox solution:

    You might want to check those SS baroques from Indah http://www.etsy.com/listing/11593189...-silver-south?
    Those are not Keshi and not Tahitian, but so gorgeous and might fit your aim pretty well
