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!

      • Well this is the photo that I tried to upload yesterday. The ombre tahitian and south sea rope that I made with pearls mainly from Pearlescence.

        I wasn't totally pleased. It's pretty but still. So I shortened it and removed the golden south sea pearls. The photo is a bit dark.

        • Then I had an idea, late at sunday after dark. An ombre ombre strand. So scissors came into action. Treads did fly everywhere, no not really. I removed most of the peacocks...and some other including all of the south sea pearls. I made an ombre from silver to blue to green to light peacock green. Then I alternated the big pearls with 7-8mm tahitians in the same color, those from Druzydesign. An ombre ombre strand. I love it. It's about 24,5 inches.

          The photos aren't all that great. I post better ones soon. But at least you get the idea. The colors are more like on the first photo in the previous post

          • Wow Charlotta! Your ombre ombre :-) is gorgeous!!! And the earrings are so pretty as well!!! If there is a possibility of a neckhot I would really be interested to see what this one looks like...

            • Thank you eolian pearls. Maybe I can get a neckshot if the weather is bad this weekend. If it's sunny then the photos are all bad. I have been using it for two days and I really do love it. It's very blue and green at front and fading towards the back. Luckily I had all those tiny tahitians from Druzydesign. At first I had thought to scatter them randomly but when I did the layout they looked better alternated. I did arrange them sunday evening with crappy light but waited until monday night to string them. I just had to rearrange a few pearls. I prefer to sort pearls in daylight by my kitchen window. Sometimes I even put them with beading board and all on the window sill so that I can think about the placement whilst eating dinner. I have to watch out for the cats though. I remember a quote from Persian Pickle by Sandra Dallas were Quennie Bean says she rather quilt than eat. Well I rather sort pearls than eat. At least if the colors are pretty.

              • Here are two new photos, it's to sunny to show the pearls properly. This was sort of what I had on mind when I wanted a green tahitian strand. I didn't think that it would be ombre but I really like how this one turned out. Funny though that I asked Wendy to find green pearls like this and then I had already bought them from her, the big one that is.

                I like the earrings as well, even though they are peacock, maybe a medium green peacock. Beautiful pearls though.

                  • Thank you CortezPearls. Somehow I love small tahitians much more than say the same size of akoyas.. Maybe it's all the colors

                    • I have started my yearly restringing, well I go through them all and check to see which ones that needs restringing. My ombre golden strands from Pearlescence have big pearls and are pretty heavy. Whilst restringing these I added an inch to the one that are deep golden at front and fading towards the back and removed some from the one that goes from deep golden to white. They are now both 20 inches long. If I want to I can connect them and make a 40 inches long rope.

                      I had intended to use the leftover pearls and those in the golden and green rope, the huge ones to make a mixed south sea rope. But I ended up making a 20 inches long strand of mixed south sea pearls instead. I only used my favorite pearls.

                      • This is what I made out of those ginormous south sea pearls from Pearlescence . I added them to my vintage golden akoya waverope. I changed the waves.some. It's light, pretty and layers well.

                            • I did manage to get some photos of my new ombre ombre strand, but the light wasn't cooperating one bit. Overcast one second, sunlight the next. For every photo I saved I deleted at least ten.

That flickig light didn't do anything for the poor pearls.

It's a bit short so I added an extender. Some day when I can get hold onto some lighter 7-8mm tahitians I will add those. I sort of took all of my favorite ones for the ombre ombre strand. Smaller strand with extender.

The pearls are from Cees. They got leftover when I shortened the mixed sizes tahitian rope
