    Next to this very white Majorica bracelet you can see the color of the small Tahitians better.

        Exquisite! I love how you captured all the colors in the photograph.

          That long strand of freshwater pearls is so pretty and I love that peacock bracelet. I know just what you mean, sometimes peacock pearls look purple and sometimes pink. Unless it's really sunny, then mine looks rather brown. I made a circled peacock stretch bracelet with a purple carved skull. The skull is mostly to hide the knot insider and it's also pretty cool. I call them my corona bracelets, because I can rinse them of. Very practical.

            Thank you all for your kind comments. The light was really good that day, lisac.

            I always fancy that ringed Tahitians look like little planets.

            Charlotta, that purple stone skull bead really makes for a beautiful and edgy bracelet.

            I found the other half of my strand of small Tahitians today, and at that moment the sun came out. I need to make those earrings. Now just to find some pretty headpins in my stash. I believe I have already made some ear wires that will work well with them!

              They are the third strand from the bottom in this Etsy photo by the seller (WenPearls). I was very happy when they arrived; they really lived up to expectations. And I do love that they are 8-11mm. They’re petite in comparision to other ringed Tahitians I have or have seen. Thank you again for looking!

                What a timely reminder, Multichrome! Pearls are the most sensual gems! Not only do pearls give us visual pleasure with their glorious colors, but are silky to touch, talisman, touchstone or worry beads. When playing with my ropes I notice the pleasant clicking together of small pearls or klonking sound of heavy pearls, too.

                Charlotta and Multichrome, great colors on your ringed T's! I prefer them to perfect rounds any day!

                  Those are lovely circle pearls - great colour, and a nice size for a bracelet. . I find my circles and baroque pearls much more wearable than my round pearls. There’s something appealingly informal and arty about them.

                      Thank you, Pattye! They really are, both the Akoyas and the freshwaters. Looking at them and wearing them is a real pick-me-up! Thank you again to all who have commented.

                      I’ve only been collecting for about a year and a half, and am happy with the pieces I have bought. I got pearl mail today, and I hope I can take photos tomorrow, as it’s supposed to be sunny (at last).

                        Pretty bracelets, Multichrome! I do love bracelets and always forget about taking them out. You’ve inspired me to set some out to remind myself to wear them.

                          Thank you, jeg. I enjoy necklaces and earrings, but I love to be able to see what I’m wearing whenever possible, so I’m partial to long necklaces and bracelets. I hope you enjoy wearing your bracelets more often. Would love to see pics in the “pearls in action” thread if you think of it.

                                It’s sunny today! Here is a sweet little 18” strand of vintage Japanese Akoyas that I found on eBay when I was first becoming interested in pearls. They have a certificate saying that they were purchased in Ginza in 1974. They’re about 6mm and very round. 18” is wearable but definitely a choker for me. I often wrap them twice and wear them on my arm. The more I wear them, the more they seem to glow, though I am careful of them and keep them clean with purified water and a soft cloth.

                                Here they are next to a similar-sized strand of pink freshies that I’m also photographing today while the sun is shining:
