    I know what I forgot CortezPearls. I could have sewn on a pearl earring on my octopus.

    I still might CortezPearls. Remember those tahitian keshis I bought last summer and didn't know what to do with. Well first I made a bracelet, with just keshis. Well it was a bit smallish for me so I remade it into a triple wrap bracelet with a toggle clasp and some silvery and blue pearls. K call this one Fairys treasure.

ID:	458347 It's pretty. I'm not sure it will survive the scissors should I suddenly need blue tahitians. The keshis are from Druzydesign, the akoyas and some small blue tahitians are from Pearlescence, some silver tahitians from Cees and the circled blue tahitians from cmw pearls.

      This is what the bracelet looked like before K remade it.

          Thank you SurfnSci. Hopefully it does. I just know what happens when I get an idea and suddenly need a color...

            I demand to see the Octopus with the hat! I don't care if it's wearing pearls or not. Just stick a pearl in the photo on a tentacle. It's not like you don't have a few spare pearls lying around, Doug!

              LOL! My daughter would kill me if she knew I was posting her creations online for the world to see!

            He could add a pearl as an earring with a pin BWeaves don't you think

ID:	458376 Some pearls are perfect and don't need improvment. Blue tahitian strand from Pearlescence and white south sea strand from Cees. They are lovely on their own and together.

                  Love to see Winter is Here! We've had snow in the mountains too! Hopefully I'll be able to take my daughters to see the snow this year (they've never seen snow!).
                  Pearl looting is a must if you're a Pirate!

                    Your daughters octopus is beautiful and very well made CortezPearls and pretty mabes as well. My cats stay away from my octopus wierdly enough, since they steal pearls, my warm slippers, some weird thinghy that stops hair going inte the pipes in the bathtub, all kinds of building supplies and twice a paint roller drying of...
                    Thank you eolian pearls I love playing with pearls. I have been playing with my newish edisons this week, I had added two white south sea pearls and three golden south sea pearls but today I removed them and added two bigger ripple pearls instead. It's now an all freshwater ombre pearl strand, surprisingly many colors in them. I call it Sunrise Clouds. I would love to make a Winter is here strand but sadly a lack of cooltoned white south sea pearls. The ones I have loose are white but with a slight creamy tone to them. Gives a custardy effect...
                    CortezPearls, hopefully your daughters loves the snow. I don't but then I am used to it. I loved snow when I was a child and would play with it outside for hours with my sisters. I still could of course but nowadays I get cold. I also don't like the slippery roads and all the extra clothes one has to pile on that restricts my movement, even though I did buy a new outdoorsy jacket last year...I have to admit that freshly fallen snow or frostcovered trees are pretty though...seen through a window.

                        My pleasure BWeaves. Now I am making cotton pads that can be reused. Sadly no new photos. To much snow to go to my photostudio aka the outdoors room at the summercabin. It's so remote that you cannot easily get there when the snow makes the hill to difficult to drive up. Noone plows that road, also it's a narrow dirtroad. So I will show some old photos that I found on my phone yesterday. Apparantly the light was glorious the 28 mars 2021...
                        The white south sea strand from Cees from yesterday looks great with my circled deep golden south sea strand from Druzydesign as well.

I have some of my rainbow strand from Pearlescence as well.

Not only for the almost perfect pearls (difficult to find a single mark), the mostly totally round pearls and of course the remarkable colors, some I never even seen before (like the dark blue edisons). Mostly it's so precious because Wendy could take my idea and make it even better than I could imagine. Most of the time I prefer to do things on my own, but this exercise communicating only via messages and photos was really good for me and I now consider Wendy to be a friend.

                          I am thinking about remaking my Fire and Ice strand into two bracelets instead, a Fire one and an Ice one. They could still be used as a necklace with an added extender and enhancer. I think that the different portions would benefit from not being in the same strand.

                          These firey pearls would probably look better on their own.

ID:	458443 As would these. I haven't fully decided yet. I recently did make a mixed south sea bracelet with some pretty circled south sea pearls.

ID:	458446 Love the pearls, not the bracelet strangly enough. Yesterday I used that bracelet as a base for my last vintage akoyas, a previous much remade wavestrand. I tried it with white south sea pearls, green tahitians, blue tahitians, peacock tahitians and so forth. I don't have a photo just yet, but picture this

ID:	458447 but with the bracelet above instead (the one on the photo is still intact, but the akoyas are from the same triple strand). I think that I like the new strand. Those akoyas didn't work with the other version because they are to warmtoned. The pearls in the mixed bracelet is from Pearlescence and Druzydesign.
