    Some more photos of my new blue and purple strand. The akoyas are from Pearlescence, the purple beadnucleated freshwater pearl are from that Lilpearl strand I bought last year that was to purple for me to wear on it's own. They have all kept their purple color though.

Well some of them anyway. Rainbow and blue strand and then my aqua strand. Some aqua tahitians are from Druzydesign. Also my green akoyas and tahitians strand. Those green akoyas are also from Pearlescence and the big green tahitian drops are from cmw pearls.

But I didn't. I really do love that blue tahitian bracelet from cmw pearls.

    ​​​​Lastly a photo of my lucky strand. I only recently realised that it's lucky. Good things happens when I wear it. And I'm not supersticious.
    Click image for larger version  Name:	_20210509_132717.JPG Views:	0 Size:	185.9 KB ID:	453273 Recently I had this waverope on when I did the checkup on my almost 20 years old car. In sweden they are to be checked up every 14 months and sometimes the person who does the checkup can be picky. My darling car do have it's flaws. But that day the checkup person totally fell in love with my car. The four wheel drive, the I don't know what it's called, when you change the gear to pull up boats and stuff. And the motor. My car is basically an off road car. Some parts glued and rather scratched. The plate attatched with screws. But it runs great... So you see quite lucky that strand. Yesterday I had it on again, just because it's pretty. On monday they made my age group release for getting the vaccin. Well the whole system for booking crashed of course. You are to identify with electronic id. Yesterday I found a reference to a hospital on one of those sites, called it and got my vaccin the same day. You see quite lucky indeed. Yay. I have been waiting like forever since I have pretty bad asthma and meet a lot of people at work every day. Funnily enough Not-husband will get his on thursday, even though he is older than me and booked two weeks ago. I told him that he had to wear my lucky strand. He of course said that I was bonkers. I think that it's those vintage akoyas in the strand that makes them lucky. I bought them very preloved. Someone clearly loved those and wore them all the time. Whilst putting on perfume and/or hairspray. Some pearls were very damaged. The other ones great and with great luster. I think that whomever loved that double akoya strand passed that love on. The green blue tahitians from cmw pearls are gorgeous as well, but maybe not old enough not loved for that many years to be classified as lucky pearls quite yet. I did tell Not-husband to wear them anyway. He is going to a drive in vaccination placed. Wearing a t-shirt. He doesn't want to wear a rope of pearls...some people clearly hasn't got any sense...
    And the only side effect of the vaccine as of now is very sore arm muscle. I get that with all vaccines.

    Thank you AngelinaS. I was very pleased with myself when I came up with the morsecode idea. Except for the wirewrapping part. Very hard on the eyes. One could do anything really. Birthday presents, making a treasure hunt for child, with the morsecode tincup as code. So many possiblities.

    Oh my goodness, Charlotta these are all GORGEOUS, but I particularly love the purple and blue combo. And the morse code idea is absolutely ingenious! I love that so much!

    Thank you CortezPearls. And you can write anything with two different kinds of pearls. But it takes a while.

    That tin-cup STRAND is simply GORGEOUS!

    Thank you CortezPearls. I like those purple pearls with lighter pearls. I first had them as a strand, but it got to be too purple for me. Most of the others are in my morsecode tincup.

ID:	453080 I combined the purple beadnucleated freshwater pearl with white freshwater keshis. I had so much fun with this tincup, that spells out my name. Some day I am going to wirewrap the whole alphabet.

    Wow! Charlotta I really like the large purples placed next to the Akoyas...they really go well together...this was a combination I needed to SEE...thank you

    The aquas with Akoya are also special but my heart really goes out to the purple combo...it just packs an extra punch!

    BTW: HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all !!!

    The purple beadnucleated pearls are placed assymetrical in the strand, I didn't like it when I first arrange them symmetrical.

    Finally some photos of my blue akoyas and purple beadnucleated freshwater pearl strand. I have been busy redesigning our gardens. And digging, making new flower beds, exchanging the soil and planting. Yesterday we made an herb garden. The blue akoyas are all from Pearlescence. First a photo of my latest blue akoya remakes.

    Newbie here! Charlotta, I've been drooling over this thread for the past 2 days. You have such beautiful pearls! I've been obsessing over jewelry findings and pearl sellers you've mentioned and can tell this thread is going to be dangerous for me. I love seeing all your combinations. So creative!

    Thank you linda.wald. It really is very pretty, the blue and purple combination. I hope that I will have some new photos in a few days.

    Oh, I'd love to see the purple and blue combination! Note: I also love the others... and the pastel blues and ssp strand would look good on a darker colored background (just a thought).

    I will. It is a great combination really. I'm not really surprised since blue and purple look great together in flower beds and in quilt especially with an addition of a darker rose color. Not that I have any deeper rose colored pearls...but it would be pretty
