  • Thank you Pattye. It was fun learning a new technique.

    • Oh, a rainbow of pearls and gems ... very nice Charlotta! I've been holding onto a small array of little pastel sapphire briolettes for some time now, thinking of a similar design

      • CathyKeshi, I think that it will be perfect. You have to show us your design when you are done.

        • Might be a long while, Charlotta ... while my mind can wirewrap, my hands disagree, sigh ...

          • CathyKeshi, for me it's more that my hands and my head agrees and my eyes disagree. I have strained my eyes on numerous occasions.

            • I still had some blue akoya pearls left from the strands I bought from Wendy at Pearlescence. And I didn't have any matching earrings for my tincups. So I wirewrapped some pearls to make dangly earrings.

              • I also got an idea about making some dangly black and white earrings. Had to get my aceton and glue again...

                I used these pearls for my earrings. White south sea pearls.

                And some tahitians. They are not this dark in real life, dark grey with some brown maybe. Depending on the light.

                So in the aceton they went and then I glued on pearl caps and attatched some silver chain to them. Actually very pleased with these. The pearls looks lovely together.

                            • I still cannot capture the color on the tahitians correctly. The shift in purple to, but not in a warm tone. Here is a photo in morning light from the window on a plate I found in the cupboard.

                              Both the tahitians and the south seas I bought from Bob at Pearlsociety years ago. The south seas were dangly first, but I didn't like the findings, and then studs. The tahitians I haven't experiment as much with. I haven't really used them as studs for a while since I prefer other studs, usually the more colorful studs I bought from Wendy at Pearlescence and from JerseyPearl at Oceanscove. The new black and white dangly earrings have a beautiful grafic look to them that I like. So hopefully will get used. I think they will look great with both my south sea strand, from Cees, my rikiteas from Cees as well and my grey and white strand that I showed with the earrings in the previous post.
