    Bweaves looking forward to your waterfall necklace, hope the package gets out before hurricane hits.

    Battah thanks for the tip. Good idea to lengthen.

    Tonight I wore a simple drop freshwater I got from wens. I asked her to put eye pins on the drops. I decided to add a chain and added another jump ring at the end so it can dangle from my huggies.

    Very elegant!!!!

    My package just went out. It should get back to Sarah by Monday, so ahead of the hurricane.

    I like that. I'll keep it in mind for future use.

    Kalmen you always look so gorgeous! I love seeing your event photos on Instagram

    BWeaves glad you like it! It offers a lot of options. Sometimes I double the chain to shorten it, sometimes I use a different, larger chain. It's a nice way to tweak necklace length for necklines or layering.

    You could even use an inexpensive necklace extender such as is sold at Walmart. They come in different lengths and yellow or white metal.

    Kalmen- such a glamorous look. It doesn't look "simple" to me!

    BWeaves- I'm sorry the bracelet didn't work out. I'm sure you will enjoy your waterfall since it's something you've been wanting.

    Pistachio akoyas from PP and black and white Tahitian studs from Kamoka. They clash, but somehow they go together. The B&W studs just go with everything. The "white" one looks more like a blue akoya, sort of.

    Yes, I'm glad I got mine when I did. I'm starting to learn that the unusual pearls have to be bought when you see them, because they may not come around again. There's still some pearls I'm kicking myself for not getting.

    Whew! The Kojima necklace is in San Francisco according to tracking information. I had hoped it would get out of Florida ahead of Irma.

    Presenting my set which started my rather late pearl journey -- the "smallies".

    These were my mother's, and we don't even know what type of pearls they are (any guesses?). I had them since I was 7, but only wore them during Sunday mass and some formal celebrations like weddings. I started using them a little more frequently when I started working, because it felt very mature to wear them -- and we all know that "adulting" is so hard.

    I still wear them now, they're great for dress-down days and are kinder to the earlobes. I'd bring out the gssp's during the days wherein I have to deal with clients. A little shock-and-awe power goes a long way. :P

    the "smallies"? You're funny!
    A simple pearl earrings and pendant on a dress down day is perfect. Comfortable but still look great.
    I haven't seen your gssps...
