  • Yes, that crochet cloth is really special to me. She had made a tiny flaw in it, but I kept it.

    • Wendy found me another treasure. An amazing big tahitian multicolor strand that has the same amazing luster and colors as my rikitea strand from Cees, only bigger. These once are 11-12,3mm. Mostly I have pearls that are about 8-10mm, like my rikitea strand. I do know that I don't like my big ripples or the baroque south sea pearls, both around 15mm. But maybe that has do do with the quality of the pearls rather then the size. My rainbow strand is about 11mm and I love that size, also the quality of the pearls in the rainbow strand are amazing, hardly a mark on them. So I ordered this bigger strand and I love it. Since it's about 19inches and my rikitea strand is 18 inches, I discovered yesterday that they accually nests. I did restring my big strand even though they were expertly knotted and with a perfectly fine orbit clasp. I wanted it to have the same clasp as most of my other strands. I can also make a rope out of this strand and my rikiteas.

      With my white south sea huggies. I converted these to go with my edisons huggies that Wendy made me. The white south seas goes great with the strand.

      • I also bought one of those tiny tahitian Collins strands from Wendy, the blue one. It's 7,1-7,9mm and goes great with my blue tahitian strand, also from Pearlescence.

        • I am so happy with all of my new pearls. I also got a new caliper from Wendy. Now I am off to measure everything under 20mm. Where is kitten assistent?

          • So beautiful and if I was you- I would also be very happy with the new pearls. I just want to reach out and grab every cherry/purple pearl in your new strand.

                Both are knotted with Beaders secret in navy and can easily turn into a rope with that nifty clasp I use. I wore them together 2days ago, not as a rope but as two separate strands, with the blue studs I also bought from Wendy last year. These blue pearls are perfect with blue jeans and a cashmere sweater, or any outfit really. It's a beautiful blue color on the pearls.

                When worn they don't look dark, just really blue.

                • My new big, 11-12,3mm, tahitian strand from Pearlescence is so gorgeous. I have worn it for several days this week. Today with my rikitea strand from Cees. They nest perfectly, and I wore them like that for most of the day but I have now linked them together as a rope so that I more easily can admire the pearls. My new strand is like a sibling to my rikitea strand, the same luster and colors but different sizes. So many gorgeous colors, even a red one.

                  Such an amazing strand, Wendy has really found me some treasure this year.

                  • I had to photograph possible earrings and other layering possibilities. I have a weakness for using these white south sea pearls that I remade to use with the huggies from Pearlescence together with my big tahitians. They are really nice together.

                    The darkish tahitians I also remade for the huggies work as well. They have sort of a purply brown color.
