    SO MANY PEARLS, SO LITTLE TIME----

    Comment


    • Thank you Pattye, I will try, but you know those scissors has a will of their own. Now they are thinking about combining those smallish tahitians left with one of the rainbow bracelets that I made myself. I am not sure that the rainbow effect will be possible to see.

Would add to the lenght at least. I could also make a double bracelet out of them. One day I will surely try.

        • Thank you eolian pearls. I am rather smitten myself so it will probably stay the way it is. I have lots of other pearls to play with. Mostly restringing I'm afraid. My ombre tahitian rope from Cees needs restringing. I am thinking about adding a clasp again. Not that I need a clasp, it's just finickely finishing an endless rope some. Well recently I had to remake a rope twice, the needle wouldn't go into the last pearl. My bad, I left to little room and the knot on the first pearl had lodged itself into the last pearl making it impossible to get the needle through it. So that one did also get a clasp.

          • I did put an orbit clasp on the mixed sizes tahitian rope that I shortened to 41 inches and got some better photos of it that shows the colors better. The previous ones were a bit warm. There are so many soft colors in this one. Most of the pearls are from Cees with just a few from Druzydesign.

            • Like these very much...specially the use of those big, circled-drops. They just add so much flavor to the necklaces.

              Wow...and just saw those aquamarine ones...stunning!

                • Yesterday I remade my mixed south sea strand. As you might remember I made this a while ago, really liked it and then I wanted to try to make a ombre tahitian and south sea rope. Well since I have now remade that rope yet again I had all those south sea pearls in a pile. So I remade it. I don't think that it's exactly like before but that doesn't matter. The pearls in this one is from Pearlescence, OceansRhyme and Kongspearl.

ID:	451006 Those deep golden south sea pearls aren't earrings. They are the ones I saved from restringing all those pearls from Pearlescence, to use with those deep golden south sea pearls that I still haven't recieved from Druzydesign. They are at the mercy of the swedish postal service...

                      • Today I have been wearing my green and pink tahitian studs from Pearlescence, my newly remade stretch bracelet that I made with silvery pearls from Cees and my new vintage coral necklace from vintageatmums on etsy. I love my new necklace, the pendant and chain is vintage and the swivel dog clip is new. Very handy that dog clip.

ID:	451045 I couldn't find a good single photo of those earrings, but I did loose all of my photos a year ago. And this is a photo of my new necklace that the vendor took.

                        • Very pretty combination Charlotta! Oh red coral...beautiful vintage piece, I believed vintage is the only way to go with red coral as the governments fail to effectively protect these species and overharvesting together with the climate change threaten their extinction.

                          • Thank you eolian pearls. In sweden it's not legal with new coral or ivory. Ivory is more protected than coral though. I wouldn't buy coral that wasn't vintage. I think that this piece is from the 70:s. And I love that red color.

                              • I have been busy restringing strands lately. I have started anyway. Only those that needs restringing, but I wear then a lot. I started out with my rikitea strand from Cees. I accually added two pearls next to the clasp so that it's more comfortable. The photos are a bit warm.

ID:	451253 then I continued with my ombre rope from Cees. I added a clasp near those lighter pearls. Those photos didn't look good either so here are some old ones. Click image for larger version

ID:	451252 And the back. Since I added my usual clasp I can pretty much turn it anyway I want to anyway.
                                Then my vintage akoya and blue green tahitian waverope needed restringing as well. No wonder, I have worn this a ton.

ID:	451250 Yesterday me and not-husband had to resque smallest cat. Last year we made a library with bookshelves on all the walls. High ones. In one corner we added a small bookshelf for cd:s. That one is angled with some space behind it. Yep you guessed right. Smallest cat, being clumsy for a cat, had fallen into that small space. Bookshelves firmly attatched to the wall. It's an old house. It's made out of boards that are thick. Anyone try to kick though our walls will break their foot. Luckily not-husband has been playing with the clumsy cat and has been teaching her to climb up one of those fabric tunnels for kittens to play with. Don't know why, they both love that game. So I lowered the tunnel into that small space and told the terrified cat to climb. And she did! She lost her grip twice but finally I could see her little head and grab her. I checked her over and cannot find anything wrong with her. She was upset and had to sleep on not-husbands arm though. She quite often falls down from chairs and such whilst rolling about. But usually not at that height.
