  • Oh, Charlotta, that South Sea strand with the overtones is breathtaking. And I especially love the silver aqua Tahitian earrings next to it.

    I have tassel findings; in the new year I would like to try to make one and see how it turns out. Love yours. Thank you again for sharing.

    • Charlotta, Iím sorry to hear you were so sick! I can tell you are feeling better because you are back to your deconstructing, rearranging, creating inspirations.

        • Thank you Wendy, multichrome, Jeg and CortezPearls. I am much better, but was really sick for about 10 days. I recovered quickly however, probably because I sit up during the day and don't lie down (don't want pneumonia ever again) and drink lots of water.
          I am very pleased with the south sea rope. It looks great with so many other pearls. Today I made suchi and a new rope. Not at the same time. Not-husband has been longing for suchi, noone delivers were we live and we are not suppose to go anywhere that isn't absolutly neccessary. I made maki, california rolls, 2 kinds of nigiri and homemade gari. It was great. Whilst I waited for the rice to cool properly I made a 40 inches long rope that is perfect with the white south sea rope. I made it out of those silvery blue akoyas from Pearlescence, 2 silver tahitians and a 5 white south sea pearls. This one is much lighter and is perfect for layering. The blue looks great with the white pearls. I don't have a photo of it just yet. I will try to take some next weekend.
          I am sure that your tassel will be gorgeous multichrome. My first tassel took about 4 hours to make (had to figure out how to), the following 3 about an hour each.

          • Charlotta you have the most amazing ropes!
            Love your new creation, and I am totally in awe of your sushi making abilities as well! That’s a truly special multitasking talent you have! It happens that I have been eating loads of sushi this week as we have a great new delivery service in my winter home town and I can prepare sushi rice and sashimi but dont really have much patience for anything else sushi related. I guess it is like with wire-wrapping, I leave this part to the professionals:-)

            Get well soon, I am very much looking forward to your new pictures, the silverly new rope sounds dreamy...

            • Thank you eolian pearls. I learnt how to make sushi during a summer vacation some years ago. I bought a big book about japanese cooking, in english, and experimented away. I had to refresh the rice making though. I usually try to learn something new each vacation. One time it was wire wrapping, last summer I made ramen from scratch and ones me and my daughter made cupcakes of every kind one can imagine.
              I also made a 45 inches long tahitian rope last week. I cut apart five bracelet for this one. Well they were bracelets at one point at least. Most of the pearls are from Cees and then I added some pearls from a bracelet I bought from Druzydesign. Mostly drop pearls, 8-14,5mm. Lots of neutral colors in this one. It goes with everything.

              • After cutting apart all those strand, the lovely green akoyas from Pearlescence looked all abandoned. Since I really do love my silver blue akoya and drop tahitian rope I combined them with my favorite and most colorful circled tahitian pearls from that multicolored tahitian rope that I recently made. Yep, cut that up as well. I needed the darkest pearls for another project...the green akoya and circled tahitian strand is now 27 inches long and the pearls between 7-10,4mm. It is a bit pastelly and very pretty.

                OPS, got carried away. Back to the green akoyas. The mismatched green tahitian studs from OceansRhyme are perfect with this one.

                And that lenght most often depends on how many pearls I have available...I show you the strand with the darkest of the circled tahitians tomorrow.

                • Beautiful arrangements, Charlotta. I’m glad you’re feeling better. Sushi sounds good, hm hm. Wasabi will clear out everything that’s bothering one, haha! Thank you for the hint about the time it may take to make the first tassel. I also love your clasps and want to purchase some for myself. I still have the name of the seller from whom you got them, so I’m good!

                  • Thank you multichrome. I am sure your tassel woun't take 4 hours. I think my first tassel included a little kitten that stole the half made tassel with wire and ev everything.
                    Wasabi will do that. Not-husband has tried it on a lot lately. He says it's good with ham and mustard. And eggs...well I haven't tried. Usually I prefer gari.

                    • Charlotta,
                      So sorry to hear you have been under the weather. Pleased to hear you are now feeling better.

                      Love your new strands. The one that catches my eye would be the South Sea necklace, with the white and golden south sea pearls, with the Tahitians. The colors just catch my eye. All of the 3 are beautiful. So lovely the way you have placed them together.

                      Wishing you a happy holiday. Feel better soon.

                      • All 3 strands are GORGEOUS but I have the same eye for the 3-colored necklace (just like AzFlyGirl)...I just love that beautiful contrast in colors

                        • So glad you’re feeling better, and up to your old ‘snips’!

                          • Thank you AzFlyGirl, CortezPearls and lisa c. I am feeling much better. And I have a new knot cutter, much better than my old scissors. The strands are all trembling...moahaha. I had to buy a new reamer. It broke. I was going to ream out a knot that had gotten struck, now I have a pearl with a knot and a piece of reamer stuck inside...I found the knot cutter when I bought the new reamer. Didn't egen know there was such a thing. Bought a new wire cutter as well. Mine was a bit dull.
                            I agree with you all about the mixed strand of golden and white south seas and dark peacock tahitians. It's just so pleasing to look at. Mostly I prefer silver with tahitians, but peacocks accually looks good with gold. The white and deep golden south sea pearls did not look good with some cooltoned tahitians. I tried that first.

                            • When I cut apart that multicolored circled tahitian rope, that I mentioned yesterday, I first removed my favorite dark pearls. I had a plan for those pearls. I found a baroque white south sea strand at OceansRhymes sale a while ago. I ordered them well before I got sick and they arrived just when I was starting to feel better. I also bought a dark circled tahitian bracelet with an adorable tassel. I do have my holy grail white south sea strand from Cees, so I didn't needed it as a strand per se. I have wanted to make a black and white south sea sea and tahitian strand for a long time. Since I first saw BN:s strand. I did make a white and grey strand ones. For my new strand I used about half of the new white strand. The rest I used for another project...I also added some white south sea pearls from Pearlescence, the dark circled tahitian from new bracelet and the dark tahitians from my cut up rope. It's 26,5 inches and the pearls are between 8,2-11,8mm.

                              I like this strand. I will post the one with the rest of the south sea pearls tomorrow. I will have to find a new use for that tassel charm.
