      Gorgeous strands. I also used to buy vintage akoyas. I have had lots of fun with those strands, only one remains as it ones was. The others are quite reformed.

        Thank you both, BWeaves and Charlotta! The white ones are simplicity itself. I’ll post pics of the very shiny freshies tomorrow. As the pearls in each are about the same size, they were a great lesson to me in spotting the difference between the shape of Akoyas vs. near round freshwaters.

        It’s been about 18 months since I bought my pearl stringing kit from Pattye on Etsy. I had a feeling I was starting something fun, and it was true!

          I’m wearing these today. Never mind that it’s washday and I’m in a t-shirt and shorts. They’re my lavender 6.5-7.0 mm AA+ freshwaters from Pearl Paradise. I bought them in April to cheer myself up, and let me tell you, it worked! I got them smaller than my white ones, since a 35” strand of the 8mm ones is quite a bit heavier (as you know). Also I wanted to knot them, and they are a good size for that. I love them to bits. I would probably faint at the sight of AAAs or freshadama lavenders, as I think these are so beautiful. Thank you for looking and I wish everyone who celebrates it in January a Happy New Year. And a HAPPIER new year!

                Those lavender pearls are gorgeous. I agree, lets hope for a happier 2021. I know things can always be worse, but 2020 has been kind of bad.

                  I’m a bit late to the party, but I now know why keshi are so loved. Last month on a whim I ordered these loose white keshi, and they arrived right at dusk yesterday. This morning in the sunlight I brushed off the drill dust and—oh la la! I strung them on some thread so as not to lose a one. The mirror-like lustre makes them hard to photograph. I wish I’d ordered more now! Look for them to appear in the beader’s thread soon. I can’t wait to wear them. I have enough for a bracelet and a pair of earrings for sure.

                  Thanks for looking!

                    Beautiful keshis. I bought some just like yours maybe two years ago. Stunning luster and rainbow overtones. Mine were freshly drilled and did stink something fierce. After some cleansing and airing the smell finally disappeared. You probably had better luck. I bought 80 pearls, most of them are in my morse code tincup. You have to post a photo of your finished bracelet and earrings.

                      Thank you, Charlotta! Also, a tin cup or some form of station necklace is a marvelous idea. I’m glad these didn’t smell bad; I’d heard of that before so I definitely didn’t want to drill my own!

                        Oh, those are so pretty!!! There’s always room in the brain for new pearls.

                        Wow, look at the crazy colors you captured! What delights!

                          My husband got me a bracelet from PP for Valentine’s Day. I absolutely love it. They are multicolor AAA freshwaters, 7.5-8.0mm. They’re so lustrous and look very Spring-like to me. On the day they arrived there was no sun, but the next day it came out and I took a few photos. The colors are wonderful. Thanks for looking!

                            What a beautiful bracelet you got for valentine. And I bet it's great with your lavender rope.

                                Thank you, Charlotta and eolian pearls! You’re right, Charlotta; it goes wonderfully with my lavender rope. I also have a white freshadama bracelet with the same size pearls to stack with it.

                                Someday I’d like to compare the PP freshadamas in the same multicolor shades with these, but it’s hard to imagine loving the freshadamas more than the AAAs. The quality is so totally there!
