    Ooooh, rice krispies and lapiz lazuli. Great combo, thanks for the inspiration BWeaves!
    My, my... battah's and jeg's gssp necklaces make me want to get one! Ok, maybe when my toddlers are a little older.

    Here's one from over the weekend. My mom's birthday is next month, but she's with us for the next couple of weeks. So I gave her a box, and I told her that she can open it next month on her birthday or... she can open it now and maybe start using it. I don't think I got to finish my sentence, she opened the box, ogled for a bit, and started using them. In fact, she's on her 3rd straight day of using them while on grandma duty. :P

    I knew she didn't have gssp's in her collection yet, and she likes her pearls on the small side. So I got her these 9mm 24k round gssp studs. Found this pair on sale in a jewelry shop in Marina Bay Sands, which was closing down in a week (lucky me!). And thank heavens they were on 18k gold poles, my mom has the itchies when she wears anything lower than 18k!

    I thought some of you might want to know this strand happily ended up in my collection. It is Pkinnew's beloved Kamoka strand. I know she really loved this strand because she posted it many times and when I received it, the gimp was worn through. Marianne graciously restrung it for me. It nests perfectly with a strand of Tahitians I purchased in Hawaii. Even though one has a yellow gold clasp and the other is white gold, I think the pearls compliment each other.

    The 2 strands are very compatible with each other! Beautiful.

    CrazyMissy, that was a well-chosen gift!

    Wow, I've missed so much beauty last week!
    Jeg, those Tahitian strands are stunning worn together or alone!

    CrazyMissy, what a wonderful gift. I completely understand about the itchies.

    JEG: I thought that was one double strand necklace, they match so well. They are gorgeous, and I wouldn't have even noticed the clasps were different colors if you had not pointed it out. I mix metal colors all the time. I even hook white gold orbit clasps to yellow gold ones and nobody notices. Then again, I have a lot of 2 color and 3 color gold jewelry, so people just assume that the linked necklaces are supposed to be that way.

    I don't have a photo yet, but I restrung my first akoya rope last night, again. I've got to learn not to do a choke hold on every freaking knot. Beader's Secret doesn't stretch or loosen up like silk does, so I don't need to knot as tightly. I need to just snug the knot up, not pull it till its breaking point. Anyway, the rope doesn't kink anymore, and looks a few mm longer. And I didn't need bandaids on my fingers because the thread didn't cut into them. You'd think I'd have the hang of this by now, but I don't do it every day so I haven't got muscle memory for knotting until I've done it three times in a row.

    Jeg I'm so glad to see that it was you that got Pkin's beloved Kamoka strand. It goes perfectly with your Hawaiian strand. It was just meant to be. Enjoy your special strands.
