    Thank you Pattye. I really love those huggies as well. They go with just about everything. I especially like that they are without embellishment, lets the pearls shine. You have to show us you new charms when you are done

    Charlotta, you've inspired me to make some charms for my little hoops, still in the planning stage. Love the shape of your Pearlescence huggies! Always fun to pop in and see what you've redesigned!

    I find it fantastic when small and large pearls are mixed between each other on a neckless. And colors are mixing really nice. My mother has one similar amazing neckless in one of her houses in Cannes. I will try to get photo of it this week.

    Haha K. You probably don't have enough tahitians. In my early pearl buying days I often did buy tahitians rather inexpensive. Some were not all that good. I have thrown out the worst of them. The rest are in a fishing gear box. I also put the odd tahitian or other pearl in there if I create something out of several strands. Mostly there is one or two pearls leftover. Over time they have become rather many. I have almost an entire strand of golden south sea ripples there for example. I had a rope that I remade. Also lots of peachy freshwater pearls, they look hideous on me. Once in a while I do something with all those pearls.

    Charlotta My returning thought when seeing your creations and reading things like "my leftover pile" is that I don't have nearly enough Tahitians!

    I also have the trice remade really long mixed sizes tahitian rope. First it was just rope lenght, then I made it really long, 56,5 inches, then I missed those soft color transitions from the first one, so I rearranged the pearls and shortened it to 41 inches long. The really big tahitian drops and the smaller ones are from Cees. There are also a couple of roundish tahitians from Druzydesign scattered about.

I usually pair this one either with some blueish grey tahitians on my Pearlescence huggies or my lovely green tahitian studs, that also are from Pearlescence.

    And I have to post some photos of Dark Blob, the leftover from making the ombre ombre strand. It also have some pearls from my leftover pile, but the big tahitians are from Pearlescence and the small ones from Druzydesign. The Blob part is because most of them isn't really round.

ID:	453707 surprisingly wearable Dark Blob. It must be what people think that black tahitian pearls do look like when they haven't ever seen any...

    Thank you CortezPearls, I do love playing with colors and shapes. With pearls, or quilt (even though I haven't really sewn much the last couple of years) or plants.

    It's an Art Form to get this. I cannot say I'm this kind of artist...but many here on the forum (such as you) are FANTASTIC!
