  • I try again. I made another akoya and tahitian mixed strand combining those ice blue akoyas from Pearlescence with some silver peacock circled tahitians.

      • Love these Charlotta...love the "hammered" (mottling) on some of those chunky light colored baroques...makes them extra colorful!

        • Dear Pearl Forum Members:
          I think you've noticed!
          Your Favorite Pearl Forum has been UPGRADED!
          We now have better security, more features (you can add YouTube and other videos directly on your post!) and overall a fresh new look...you can now enjoy the forum on your PC, tablet or phone since it will look PERFECT on all devices.
          When you edit text and you add bold-type, italics or underline you will see text changing on the fly (no longer will you see those odd-brackets next to your text), adding photos will also be easier.

          We hope these improvements will make your experience much more pleasant and enjoyable

          It took weeks to make the transition as clean as possible, but there might be slight issues here and there...so, I ask you to PLEASE let me know if you find or detect any issues with the forum. I will be correcting some transitional errors (misbehaving text) from the site for the coming weeks but will be happy to take care of any issues you find and report back to me

          Again, welcome to your revamped and upgraded Pearl-Guide.com experience.

            • It takes forever to open now, but I appreciate the extra security and features. It will just take me a bit longer to get used to how to do things the new way!

              • I'm also experiencing a slow-down when opening but it seems to be due to the "graphical interfase" we now have that allows the forum to display properly on cellphones and tablets...but it does make quite a difference! I would NEVER check the forum on my phone and now I can
                Anyway, please let me know if you have any issues...this week I will try to resolve them all.
                Have a great start of the week!

ID:	450577 approximated the Spanish girl, but by myself, so it’s only an approximation.
                  1) French braid to base of skull, rubber band, pony tail left.
                  2) 18” Tahitian, ball clasp
                  3) clasp necklace around neck
                  4) knot long narrow scarf over the clasp
                  5) haul the necklace and scarf above the elastic band, wrap the scarf around the hairband, knot a bow.

                  • I think The Spanish girl had a maid, and a longer necklace because the portrait shows shadows of dark glowing beads winding up her braid. Or a shorter necklace, with extenders and ribbons, but I don’t think so.
                    It’s not totally comfortable, but the braid supports a lot of the weight.
                    Ta-da! That was fun.

                    • I can see how that might work, especially if she had a maid. Perhaps she could use some sort of a hair adornment with a loop under it or take two elastic bands attache them to each other like an eight, and use one for the hair. Then a scarf or something around the elastic.

                      • If she’s like her mother, she’ll have any number of creative ways to play with this! in fact, I’d be prepared to mail her the rest of the pearls with a “Pattye” kit. Or Wendy kit. Or Bernadette kit, or Cees.

                        • You did a really good job with your photos! When I use my fingers to expand the pictures, they are still very crisp and the colors and details are perfect!

                          • Thank you lisa c. All I do is cutting those photos. Of course I delete a lot. Usually I take three photos of something, move it some thake three more...etc last sunday I deleted 419 photos. I delete them or else Google photos gets crowded, and also my phone. It's very meditative arranging photos in folders. And easier to find, for me that is.

                            • Forgot to tell you lisa c, I have tried to teach her to string but she didn't want to. I sent the rest of the pearls along with the necklace anyway. Probably one day she will give it ago

                              • Last sunday evening, after dark of course I suddenly had an brilliant idea. I immediately got my scissors out. It being dark and all didn't exactly help. You all know how I wanted a green tahitian strand with mixed sizes. Well I had recently remade my big multicolored tahitian strand from Pearlescence into an ombre rope. But I cannot show you any photos because they have the wrong size or to much kb. And someting don't remember what is was is disabled. Help CortezPearls!
