    All I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW!!! What a fabulous collection you have!! The luster on those goldens is wonderful so is the WSS. I love the Rikitea strand. And you have such a variety of studs....perfect for any occasion!! Love the colors, shapes & textures of those tin cups! Love the freshie ropes, especially the pinks with the drop earrings!

      Keshis, this is a small group, sadly enough. I bought the strand and earrings from Druzydesign and the strand of neon apatite from jaipurgemstone on ebay. I really love that tiny strand.

        Thank you GemGeek and 86Corvettegirl. I have so much fun creating this tread today. About the studs. I love studs. Dangly earrings not so much. I always put earrings on even if I don't always wear other jewelry. I have lots of rings for exampel, but I never wears them, the gets in the way.

          Pendants. Not so many but I hope a new one arrives next week. The first one is my favorite. It's a very big tahitian on an enhancer from Pearl society. I usually wears this on the keshistrand or on a chain.

          The next one is a circled crazy colorful tahitian from Druzydesign. I wore this with my new aubergine tahitian studs the other day.

          Next is a south sea drop I bought from Bob at Pearl society years ago. The gold necklace was my grandmothers birthday present on her 50 birthday. She wore it every day until she died at 80. I am greatful to have it.

          This floating tahitian I bought from TahitiPearldesigner on etsy. It goes really well together with my tincup with the small tahitian drops.

            These are just wonderful Charlotta! The Rikitea Tahitian strand is the favorite among my other favorites...if that makes sense .

              My dropshaped tahitians. The longer strand is from PearlParadise. I bought this strand in 2014. The shorter strand is from Wen Pearls. They really look great together. The dropshaped earrings I made from drops I bought from Druzydesign. I recently restrung these with Beaders secret in forest. I'm thinking about making these two strands into a rope. I don't use them as much since I bought the Rikitea strand.

                I could definitely see those combined as a rope! That's the great thing about knowing how to string your own pearls-- the ability to redo our older pieces in new ways.

                  My akoyas. All vintage. Some were broken or needed restring. Thats how I learned to string. I bought Pearl and bead stringing with Henrietta. I also found a blog, Linda's art barn. I bought supplies on ebay and then I practiced. I found Pearl guide after that. First I have a 7mm akoya strand with a white silver clasp with a diamond on it. These pearls are great. The clasp is made 1990, the same year as my son was born. I bought it from Ronaldogem in 2013 or 2014.

                  The next strand is a baroque akoya strand with a silver and marcasite clasp. I found them in an antique store in sweden.

                      Thank you Pearldreams and AndrewM. I will try to make the drop tahitians into a rope tomorrow. If I don't like it I can always change it back. I search a long time for special clasps, then I found tahitians. But I still love them and used one of them on my Rikitea strand.

                          Thanks for sharing your collection, Charlotta. Wonderful pearls all, but those Rikitea Tahitians are super special.

                              Okay. Now, I have this fantasy photo of Charlotta wearing ALL of her strands together. Dripping is pearls. It's my motto.

                                Thank you everybody. I don't think that I can wear them all at once... would probably not have a long enough neck (haha). Also haven't shared my +100inch freshwater strand yet, there is also the 60 inch freshwater strand...I might topple over...
