    • Today I altered some earrings. Some months ago I wanted to change the wire on my tahitian keshiearrings, they had goldwire and I didn't think that the goldwire looked good with the silvery pearls. So I rewired them with silver wire. However I did manager to break one of the neon apatites. Today I rewired the keshis with a pair of topaz studs with a loop under it. I didn't like the earrings the topaz belonged to so I cut them apart.

      Then I used the end of the earrings with amethysts and wirewrapped them to some silvery white freshwater keshis.

          • Charlotta, I recently made a pair of earring with blue topazes and silver-blue akoyas very similar to yours! The only difference is that I used earwires instead of studs!

            • The silvery pearls goes very well with the topaz don't they. Do you have photos of then in your tread Alyend?

              • Charlotta,
                I've just read your request, and fortunately I'm wearing them, so I've just made a photo. In a few minutes you'll find it in my tread "my collection".

                      • Today I'm wearing my copper green tahitian earrings from Cees and my frog pendant from Pearlsociety. I bought the copper green pearls from Cees loose and glued them myself, I altered them today. The finding part that hangs from the earlobe, the hook, was think and flimsy. It didn't feel secure. The glued cap part of it was ok. I cut of the hook and I now use them with these rings from agustus-collection that I had for years. I secure them with silikon stoppers. The hook ones were not thick enough for the stoppers. I accually have some other pearls with caps that I sometimes use with the rings.

                        The south sea pearl on the frog is gorgeous. Would like a strand like that one day. It's a slightly cooler medium golden color, but it's not green. The copper green tahitians are to rare to find enough for a strand, Cees says.

                          • I never tire of your golden-copper-green Tahitian earrings. Great setting for them.

                            • Thank you Red, I'm more comfortable wearing them now. They woun't go anywhere without my noticing it, the rings are rather thick so they stay where they are.

                              • Love the variety you can wear with these rings/loops. The copper greens are so gorgeous!
