    Thanks!!! Today in "back to the classics" my Kojima freshwater drops on my diamond huggies, Mom's circle pin, and Nana's necklace worn with the clasp in back.

    For the newbies, only the clasp remains of the original pearl necklace. The two strands of pearls are Freshadamas from PP. PP did a great job matching the Freshies to the akoya clasp. After 60 years of constant wear, the original akoyas were worn out. But I still think of it as Nana's necklace. It sort of reminds me of the joke about the museum that has the original ax that George Washington used to chop down the cherry tree. The handle was replaced 4 times and the ax head replaced 3 times, but it's the original ax.

    Jeg, you have the most amazing Fiji strands and pick such great shades for your coloring!

    Bweaves, love the textures of your handwoven blouse and the Ripple/Kasumi pearls! (And more!)

    And PD, look how your WSS reflect the purple of your shirt with a soft lavender haze!

    If I ever learn to do selfies, lol~

    Oh, I'm horrible at selfies. I upload the photos to my laptop and edit the crap out of them. I crop them so everything is centered and spot out my zits and wrinkles. Electronic face lift, cough, cough. I don't mess with the pearls, though.

    Pattye, you are right, they do reflect the colors of whatever clothes I wear.

    BWeaves, I love seeing your pearls with that jacket!

    gorgeous strands everyone! you guys inspire me to use my pearls more often.

    still getting used to wearing my strand on a daily basis (not daily - everyday, more like daily - there's no special occasion), for fear of looking too... expensive? fashionista? :P here's my baroque akoyas, which look great even against loud prints. they didn't break the bank but they sure look like they did!

    Thanks so much Amti and Pattye!! Amti, the pearl range is approximately 9.5-13.5. The colors are more subtle taupe, olive tones. Pattye- yes, selfies!

    PD, those shapes make me smile, too. BWeaves, love your heirloom pieces, and the memories that go with them. Crazy Missy, beautiful Akoya strand, and it looks perfect with the colorful top.

    CrazyMissy: Your baroque rope is gorgeous. That's the sort of necklace I wear with everything. I've really warmed up to baroque pearls, because they seem to have an amazing glow.

    Today I'm wearing 3 akoya ropes with jeans and a T-shirt. The more casual I dress, the more pearls I layer on. Photos later.

    BWeaves,

    Great fashion statement:
    The more casual I dress, the more pearls I layer on.

    Marianne, pattye, BWeaves, jeg, JerseyPearl, MSC, Pareltje, Katbran, thank you ladies! it was a tough choice, as I basically have lost my personal project (the last pearl/ no more pearls) partner over this job position. But I don't regret it, as we together were going the doubtful direction anyway (wholesale). Thank you!

    amti, thank you! I would ideally like it as a rope, but couldn't yet find a matching strand to mix it with))

    CathyKeshi, thank you! oh I must show you that faceted TH ring - just had it finished last week

    CrazyMissy, I have a strand of those (from PP? biggest size?) and I wear them like every day... and with other strands as well (baroque ropes etc). So no worries with your pearl choices they look great!

    BWeaves, you ROCK the brooches! I cannot express enough how I LOVE your brooches!!

    I was wearing my blue tahitian aka "Wilma" necklace, but the sun has set by the time I got home so no decent photos
