                OMG, Those Sea of Cortez are stunning. And all those T's and Fiji's. Wow.

                I still haven't figured out what type of clasp works best for me on a pearl bracelet. I thought the orbit clasp would be great, but I find I cannot work it left handed. I suspect I would need a toggle clasp. Hooks tend to come undone on me. I'm not sure I could work a fishhook safety clasp left handed, either. The elastic strung bracelets would probably work great, but I just can't shake the memory of those elastic necklaces with candy beads strung on them, and you ate the necklace while it was around your neck.

                  BWeaves, I remember those candy elastic necklaces! I can't wear elastic bracelets either-- I worry that the elastic will break.

                  I can manage toggle and box clasps with one hand. Haven't tried the orbit clasps but I struggle with lobster claws one-handed. I think it would have to be one of the little ones, which have less tension; the large ones are stiff.

                  My only Tahitian pearl bracelet is one of the leather ones from Kamoka. Seen here in indirect light indoors, and then direct light outdoors. It's a bit tricky tightening this with one hand after getting it on my wrist, though.

                    A fun topic! Taking pics already, so easy to slip the "worn daily" Tahitians off my wrist. They are the 2 bracelets on the right, worn aside a sterling watch and 2 silver bracelets. The large keshi bracelet is from Ben Bergman of Cook Islands, and the smaller are Kamoka Keshi, probably purchased from Sarah at Kojima and strung my me.

                      Thanks, BWeaves, MSC and Lady_Disdain! BWeaves, I hope you find something that works for a clasp.

                      Pattye, I really need a belly drilled keshi bracelet. I like having the dangles hanging off my bracelets, too. Pendant/charms work well with the orbit clasps. Here is a Kamoka keshi pendant, and sitting to the side is a Kojima charm.

                        Elastic can be knotted just like silk (ok, it is actually fiddly to get a nice tight knot without over stretching it). I usually string pearls on doubled elastic and knot between pearls.Even if one strand breaks, everything is still secure.

                        There are locking toggle clasps, for that extra protection. This is one I made. The stem of the toggle fits in the little loop but only slips in or out if it is twisted 90 degree. Easy to operate and hard to fail.

                              Looking forward to bracelet season again. I give them up for winter, but we are in the 40s this week, so spring is around the corner. I have tried bracelets in the winter, but have lost pearls that got caught in coat sleeves. I'm not giving up my winter coats, so the pearl bracelets need to wait.

                              These bracelets are so very pretty.
