  • Love the neck shot of the blue akoyas and aquamarine clasp on the other thread, they look wonderful on you.

      • I rewirewrapped a pair of earrings as well. The tahitians had previous a pair of white keshis on them. But I removed the keshis and added a golden south sea pearl on each earring instead. First the old ones.

        I think that they look nice together.

        • I liked the original design too, but can see why you changed the keshi out. The new earrings match perfectly with your strand!

          • Oh yes, lovely and harmonious!

              • Lovely earring. With the change, they now match beautifully with your necklace! I liked them in their original design, too.

                • I love those goldens and Tahitians. I have seen others before that look jarring, but yours are harmonious.
                  The blue akoyas with the aqua clasp are beautiful. Could you please post the neck shots on this thread, too? Can't find where you have them elsewhere.

                  • Thank you 86Corvettegirl, I agree they were pretty before but I just had to try with the golden pearls. I like them better now.
                    2thdktr, I have seen some mixed strands to that looks jarring, but this one doesn't. Maybe it's because there is less contrast between the pearls. The tahitians aren't that dark and the goldens not a very deep gold. There are also some tahitians in the strand that have a warmer hue, for exampel that copper pearl. Originally I had decided to mix the strand with white south seas, but the goldens were next to them, so I put them next to the tahitian strand and then I just had to string it. I didn't even need to redo it. Some of my poor pearls have been restrung so many times that I don't remember how they were when I bought them or from whom I bought them. This was before I started taking pictures of them though.

                    • Forgot the neckshots. First the bluish akoyas with the aquamarine clasp. The photos didn't turn out that good.

                      The bluish akoyas looks more icecreamy in real life. Also much more luster.

                      • Nice! Love the mix of goldens and Tahitians—and the pendant is a great visual "accent".

                        • Thank you Cricketbug, I really like that combination to.

                          • Inspired by 86Corvettegirls ombre strand I combined a vintage akoya strand with 10 baroque peacock tahitians. The tahitians I bought from Druzydesign last year. The akoyas I had for years, don't remember where I got them. I used the pretty silver and marcasite clasp from the akoya strand. For getting a good lenght for me I removed 33 pearls from the akoya strand. It's actually a non-ombre ombre strand since the change of pearls are rather abrupt and I'm not really sure that this is an optimal design. It might grow on me.

                            • I also rewirewrapped those poor white freshwater keshi earrings again, since I took the tahitians from them for my non-ombre ombre strand. I added one keshi to each earring.

                              With the white freshwater keshi strand. I bought the keshis from Wen Pearls, it was the formerly smelly ones.

                              • The keshis are so pretty, Charlotta! Please remind me what size they are. I think I'd like to acquire some really small ones, and preferably not smelly!
