  • Love the "Baby Tahitians" from Alexander Collins
    Amongst all these photos of splendid jewelry...I feel in Pearl Heaven! Guess that is why they say you are greeted at the "Pearly gates"

      • Thank you CortezPearls and Marianne. CortezPearls, I wonder which kind of pearls there are though at the pearly gates.

        • I have been having rather fun combining akoyas with tahitians recently. Both vintage and new ones. My first and favorite is a rope that I made with silvery blue akoyas from Pearlescence and drop tahitians from Pearl Paradise and from Wen Pearls.

          Then I made this one with vintage akoyas and blue green tahitians from cmw pearls. This one is a waverope. Love this color.

          Then I combined some green, sometimes blue tahitians with the green akoyas from Pearlescence.

          My latest one I haven't ever gotten a photo of yet. I combined these three bracelets to make a strand. Ice blue akoyas from Pearlescence and silver peacock circled tahitian.

          Then I did combine those tiny akoya keshis with a big circled tahitian from Druzydesign.

          And I guess that I can count that long rope as well. Silvery blue akoyas from Pearlescence and some tahitians and south sea pearls, I think that some are from Cees, one is from cmw pearls and the rest from my leftover pile.

              • Thank you Bweaves and CortezPearls. I am happy that someone likes my creations and photos. It's my favorite thing to do on my free time, create pearl creations, well I do love to play with colors, and taking photos of them.

                • It's also been the year of the bracelets. I make bracelets, I remake them, I use the pearls to make ropes, make new bracelets and so forth. I have completely lost track of my bracelets. I have two categories of them now. Those with clasps, I use those to make a strand a la eolian pearls style. Connecting two bracelets, an extender and an enhancer and voila a necklace. Then there are the stretch bracelets with a carved bead to hide the knot. I use those as accual bracelets. Since they are on stretch I can rinse those of. At the moment I have these three tahitian bracelet with clasps. They are all from cmw pearls. First the green one.

                  That blue one is great with my other blue tahitians. Then the rainbow bracelet. First with those pretty earrings from Pearlescence.

                  • Love them, Charlotta. I love them linked together, too.

                    Comment


                    • Thank you Bweaves, very practical with those kind of clasps.

                      Comment


                      • I also love the little skulls skulking in between the pearls.

                        Comment


                        • Bweaves, those skulls are great for hiding the knots. I add a tiny bit of glue as well. They are sturdy as well, when I remake the bracelets I use my plyers to remove the stretch cord, and not a scratch. My two currently tahitian stretch bracelets with red jasper skulls. It's the rainbow ones that I made with pearls from my leftover pile.

                          They are prettier in real life. Very colorful.

                          • Always a delight to see your pearly creations, Charlotta! Absolutely first rate!

                            I want to revisit stretch bracelets. With the ones I made a few years back, the huge freshwater pearls were too heavy for the elastic, lol.

                            • Thank you Pattye. How big were those pearls? I tried to make one with really big south sea pearls but it didn't look good worn. I think that somewhere between 9-12mm are both comfortable and pretty. But then I had those big tahitian bracelets from Cees that were amazing. I made a rope out of them.

                              • Dear Pearl Forum Members:
                                I think you've noticed!
                                Your Favorite Pearl Forum has been UPGRADED!
                                We now have better security, more features (you can add YouTube and other videos directly on your post!) and overall a fresh new look...you can now enjoy the forum on your PC, tablet or phone since it will look PERFECT on all devices.
                                When you edit text and you add bold-type, italics or underline you will see text changing on the fly (no longer will you see those odd-brackets next to your text), adding photos will also be easier.

                                We hope these improvements will make your experience much more pleasant and enjoyable

                                It took weeks to make the transition as clean as possible, but there might be slight issues here and there...so, I ask you to PLEASE let me know if you find or detect any issues with the forum. I will be correcting some transitional errors (misbehaving text) from the site for the coming weeks but will be happy to take care of any issues you find and report back to me

                                Again, welcome to your revamped and upgraded Pearl-Guide.com experience.
