  • Thank you eolian pearls. So I got a little overboard today and knotted 4 golden south sea bracelets and one extender. I am wearing this combination tomorrow, a circled pale golden bracelet with a golden south sea ripple bracelet (Pearlescence) and an extender made out of circled south sea pearls from my leftover pile. I have also added a champagne south sea enhancer from Pearlsociety. I am going to wear this combination with my deep golden south studs from Pearlescence.

          • Thank you Pareltje and eolian pearls, and now you can accually see those photos...when my deeper golden south sea pearls arrive from Druzydesign I think that I will get a better contrast.

            • My tourmalines and peridots arrived from Druzydesign. Those greenish grey pearls didn't work out, to big. It didn't look good. Now I am playing with my green akoyas from Pearlescence instead. Here is the first try.

              They look lovely but I want to include the tourmalines as well and maybe remove most of the tahitians. Well see. Today I played with my bracelets again and combined the rainbow bracelet with the blue bracelet (both from cmw pearls) , added the extender and my big circled tahitian enhancer from Pearlsociety. I used my blue tahitian studs from Pearlescence with them.

                    • Thank you eolian pearls, StarryPearl and Pattye. The peridots are really pretty and have the color of spring green. I long for spring and daffodils, it's to cold and snowy now.

                      • I keep trying to incorporate those gemstones with the pearls. It sure is easier to just use pearls in my opinion. I removed the circled tahitians and added tourmalines. The strand is very pretty but a bit, I don't know really, smallish? It needs some bigger pearls or gemstones I think.

                        I think that I may try to add some of these greenish grey tahitians. Those greenish grey tahitian drops are very pretty, clean and big, but a bit boring on their own.

                        Well at least I can string these on serafi, I don't have to use beading wire. I really dislike the feeling of pearls on beading wire when I wear it. Except for the tassels that is. I made a bracelet with all but two of those circled tahitians. It's gorgeous and sort of rainbowy. I didn't see it clearly when I made it since I used a lamp at night. I think that I have to keep it like this.

                        • Your pearls are so colorful, Charlotta. Such a feast for the eyes.

                          • Thank you Pareltje. Well I tried to incorporate those big tahitian pearls. First I wirewrapped some earrings, green akoyas and green tahitian drops on the huggies I got from Pearlescence.

                            I liked them so much that I didn't even include the gemstones. So I made an irregular mix of the green akoyas and the green tahitian drops and didn't even include the gemstones in this one either. It's a 23,5 inches long strand now. I have saved 12 of those big drops for maybe a tincup with the gemstones. To dark today, I have to try tomorrow. A slightly dark photo of the strand an earrings. The sun was almost down. I get another one in the morning.
