    Hehehehe, The Smallies. Love it. They look like very nice akoyas to me.

    You're probably right, BWeaves, small akoyas. They look too small and too round to be freshwater, but I could be wrong. I just like the fact that my mom wore them in her younger years, and they are still in such a great state, I think my daughter can still wear them once she hits 7!

    Hello Bailey1856! indeed, the set is quite comfy and low maintenance. I hardly feel the weight of the earrings. I am not wearing the gssp's today, but here is my earlier post regarding those with photos, and the story behind the purchase. Truth be told, I am still getting used to the size of my gssp studs. On the other hand, I'm beginning to think that I need a pair of white studs of the same size. Decisions, decisions...

    I love smallies. Easy and lightweight to wear.
    Pearls are addictive

    Today's pearls - gorgeous sticks that I adopted from BWeaves. I can't seem to get a good pic but they have gorgeous luster.

    I think they're very Cleopatra / Nefertiti looking. Something about them makes me think of an Egyptian collar necklace from the ancient paintings.

    Yes! That's what drew me to them. I love collar necklaces (colliers?)

    CrazyMissy- I love smallies! They are classics and so wearable.

    Battah- that collar looks great. I really like the way it sits on your neck.

    Here is another strand from Sarah, at Kojima Pearls', sale. I had them shorten it and make a pendant from one of the pearls that was taken out. I thought this was a really fun look and fits right into my collection of shell jewelry. It will be perfect for my tropical travels!

    Oh, that top is cute. And so are the pearls.

    My long triple for my first day back at work after Hurricane Irma. I needed my comfort pearls. My 8 mm white Hanadamas from PP. My 6-7 mm blue Vietnamese akoyas from PP. And my 5-6 mm first akoya rope that I recently restrung on Beader's Secret. I think I strung it too tight. It's kinking. But my experience has been that the knots loosen up after a few wearings and then it's just right. If it doesn't loosen up, I'll restring it a bit looser. I always knot too tight. I can't stand it when the pearls slide between knots. Since I strung it so tight, it's now 2 inches shorter than it used to be, so it doesn't nest the same way it used to, but that's OK.

    There were hoards of power company trucks in the parking lot this morning, heading out to fix stuff. Greg and I saw a convoy of power trucks heading down the highway last night after dropping off my Dad back home. I know Florida is usually the "screw up" state, but I have to say, the Florida governments and power companies were prepared this time. I see a lot of well organized fixing getting done.
