    Years ago, I never would have mixed these pieces together, because I feel that none of them match. But you've all inspired me that anything goes, and everything goes with everything.

    Pearl Guide folks are such inspiration, aren't they, BWeaves? I too would never have mixed pearls like I do now. That look is fabulous; rich in color and textural contrasts ... love it! Especially that ruby swan on that jacket lapel

    When your mailman delivers LOVE in a box ... Kamoka Keshi bracelet, 14K & 18K yellow gold, white/silver/palest blue Kamoka keshi pearls, grown with Love by our dear Celeste & Josh, gold work customized to fit my wrist by our dear Pattye. I'm not always the biggest fan of tin-cup styles, but this ... oh, THIS. The fit is perfect, falling down onto my hand, light as a feather, and like wearing something made of silk. Best of all, the clasp carries just enough weight to keep the bracelet from rolling around, and it's tiny companion keshi mean no pearls banging around on the bottom, at my keyboard and desk. This one is hard to take off Love and Hugs to Celeste, Josh and Pattye!

    Cathy! What a lovely bracelet— enjoy your new treasure!!

    BWeaves, I love your mix of ropes and swan with the casual wear. Where did you get the sparkly clasps? I think you said they were ordered from PP? Originally from Stuller (just guessing)?

    JEG: I love both looks.

    BN: The disco ball clasp on the Hanadamas was ordered special for me by PP. I asked for white gold with CZs instead of diamonds, and a screw clasp instead of a fishhook. I think PP was very hesitant about my request, but when the clasp came in, it looked amazing.

    The clasp on my first akoyas is from Fire Mountain Gems. I don't know what the base metal is, but it's plated with gold and has crystals of some sort. It never tarnishes and the crystals are very sparkley. For a "faux" clasp, it's held up very well. I keep thinking of replacing it with a better quality clasp when it starts looking bad, but it looks great. It's also a screw clasp.

    Both disco balls are incredibly sparkly in bright light.

    For clasps I never intend to open I like the screw clasps because they just look like a bead. There's no claspy bit hanging out. For clasps I know I'll need to open and close a lot, I prefer the fishhook style or an orbit clasp.
