    Parrot Lady, we have out summercabin near Lysekil, we accually see the town from across the water when we sit on a patio in the mountains, near the house. We try to sit there every evening when we are there watching the sunset over Lysekil, unless it rains...Its beautiful and Lysekil is a pretty little town. I had/have relatives that moved to america as well, but that was something like 100 years ago.

I removed thd chain (but saved it for some other project) and put them on shepardhooks. I wanted to see how I liked blueish akoyas before buying something like BWeaves blua akoyas. Also they replace the lavender strand that my daughter pilfered.

        They turned out nice I think.
        The earrings are really pretty on the Shepard’s hooks. But may I suggest you pinch the ends together a little bit. It looks like your pearls may slide off the hooks.

              Thank you everybody, Sunseeker I will pince the shephardhooks together some. I always puts silikonstops on my dangly earrings so that the pearls cannot escape, but I removed them for the photo. Some photos became a little blurry. If the light are good tomorrow I might retake them. You cannot see the lovely colors on the bluish akoyastrand. I also remade my to drop tahitian strand into a rope. It turned out lovely, but the photos didn't show all the colors, so have to retake them to.
              The clasps are one of my favorites to. Would love to have earrings like that, but have never found any.

                  A truly beautiful and diverse collection of pearls, Charlotta! You definitely have "made them yours" with the beautiful vintage clasps and being able to string! (Sick computer kept me offline for several weeks; it's been replaced, so now I'm back and sort of catching up!)

                    And with my golden strand from Cees and my new golden studs from Oceanscove. The new studs perfectly matches the strand. I am glad that it did. The champagne studs are from Tahitipearlsdesigner.

                      Oh, that frog is adorable. If you're a Doctor Who fan, you could call it The Solitract (cue the episode that aired last Sunday night).

                          So I did restring the drop tahitians into a rope, addes some other droppearls I had on hand. It's now 107cm or about 42 inches long. I am sure that I took at least 50 photos on them today, but light is wrong. The colors don't show up as well as I wanted so I add the previous photos of the 2 strands I combined.

                          It is more fun as a rope, then I can admire the colors whenever I want.
                          This one shows the colors a bit.

                            BWeaves, I have to admit that I have never watched Dr Who... But I have heard of it. Might have to give it a go.
                            Thank you Happy huka and Pattye. I've gotten a good use of my Beaders secret Pattye. I used forest in the drop rope. I can actually use forest, navy or taupe if I want. They all go great with my tahitians. I used taupe on my greenish south sea strand, I tried gold, wich I used for the dark golden strand, but had to change it for taupe. I held them up against the Beaders secret chart but mint and aqua seemed to cold and kiwi a bit green. Do you have any suggestions Pattye? Taupe looks great though.

                              Those drops look great! I always call drop pearls like that "potion bottle pearls." They look great!
