    Great luster indeed! I agree with SurfnSci I get these northern forest vibes to it as well...the greens and grays work on several levels!

    Two bracelets that I made before thinking about making an akoya one. Maybe some blue tahitians with the akoyas.

ID:	459290 very pretty those white edisons, the pink overtone does not look like snow....they work great as bracelets though

    These are so beautiful!!! I especially love the various green tones. I'm definitely getting mist and forest vibes.

    (And I'm hoping you'll make that icy blue akoya bracelet next )

    Some photos that I haven't shared of my Secret Forest strand and in one of them my Forest Mist bracelet. Love these colors. The pearls are mostly from Pearlescence and Cees with a few from Druzydesign. Who knew the green in the tahitians got enhanced by silver and grey tahitians? Well maybe lots of people, it was however new to me...

    Thank you CortezPearls. I feel fine, some remaining headache and tiredness occationally but other than that perfectly healthy. Except for my age and asthma, but hey I can still outwalk the those 20-30 years old young er than me. And have better stamina...
    Not-husbands granddaughter, she's almost 4, did recently tell us how come her grandfather and grandmother are really old. They walk really slow and she even demonstrated with slightly bent back and everything, clearly they are ancient. Then Not-husband asked if I also was old and she says no, Charlotta walks really really fast. Too funny.
    Hopefully you will still like the Sunrise Clouds strand CortezPearls since I moved some pearls around and removed the really metallic coppery edison that was a bit bumpy. Don't mind bumpiness really but in this case the bumpiness drew attention, since the other pearls are so unbumpy. I did have a bunch of bumpy pearls, really metallic as well, that I used in my two new bracelets, the Green Fairy and the Leprechaun gold one.
    Currently I am trying to find a home for those white edisons, some less than before since I used a few, maybe 2 in my Delights strands. I have to add some other pearls for lenght. So far I tried blue, peacock green and to mix in colorful edisons. Some day I get there. Maybe an ombre with a darker center. Don't know if I have the pearls though. I also have my rippled south sea pearls from Pearlescence at my beading boards, they were bracelets. I am thinking about remaking it into a rope once more. But should I add some color or not. I did a layout with some deep golden circled south sea pearls, about 5 of them. The pale golden ripples looks great with green as well, but a lot of contrast. The deep golden pearls looks more harmonious.
    Since I have been home this week I have also sorted some of my pearls colorwise, the blues, greens and purple ones at least. Easier to find. I did have some small cardboard boxes in those colors that I have gotten pearls and jadeit in.

    Wishing you a full recovery over the weekend Charlotta!
    I loved the Sunrise necklace. I believe it is my all-time favorite of all others you have been able to artfully concoct!

    I have been at home this week with a cold I thought, turned out to be the dreaded plageue. Funny thing is I'm almost fully recovered and them I got my test results today. Very mild version probably because of my three vaccine doses. I have been well enough to rearrange my pearls, except for sunday and monday were I was feeling kind of sick. Dreaded scissors have been hard at it. Well at least until it darkens at 4 pm. I wasn't pleased with the green tahitians or the two purple edisons in my Hearts Delight strand. Since I did cut apart some other strands last week (or the week before that) I did have some nice circled dark green tahitian without to much peacock in them. So I exchanged those added some other favorite pearls at hand and rearranged the edisons twice. Previous I went from white to peach and now it's white to purple. I also added a bigger blue tahitian and a bigger dark green one so that most color sections have a bigger pearls as centerpiece when I change how I want to wear it. Fear not it looks like before only with prettier pearls and a wee bit longer as well. It's about 33,5 inches long now, still endless.
    Then I looked at my Sunrise Clouds strand. I wanted to exchange some bumpy pearls for smoother ones as well. I had some nice from my latest order from Druzydesign. I reknotted it last night and now I see that there is two pearls that needs to change place with each other. Good thing that I have all this time, since I cannot go anywhere until monday if I am totally fine this weekend. Not that I needs to go anywhere...

    Thank you SurfnSci. Maybe that's why that bracelet is my favorite. Funny thing is the pearls were leftover and looked kind of boring whilst in a bowl. But when I ombred them they really became quite special. The same happened to a pondslime ripple freshwater pearl that I didn't like. I put it in one of my Happy bracelets and now I think that it's rather pretty. Funny that. That doesn't always happens though. I remade a bracelet yesterday that I recently made and haven't photographed yet, it was sort of rainbow arrenged, pretty but needed something. Whilst I rearranged them I removed the tahitians (except for one) and akoyas, kept only the golden south seas and the edisons and the one pale goldeny green tahitian. And it's really pretty now. Nowadays I am picky and wants a piece to truly make me happy in order to escape the dreaded scissors...

    Oh wow, Charlotta, the Sunrise and Sunset with a green flash bracelet really is spectacular! Look at those colors and that luster

    These is something special about deep golden south sea pearls and the not so brightly colored edisons. They look so good together. I often combine this deep golden south sea bracelet (I have exchanged some of the pearls for even deeper golden south sea pearls from my latest shipment from Druzydesign) and my Sunrise and Sunset with a green flash bracelet.

ID:	459133 The Sunrise and Sunset with a green flash bracelet might just be my favorite bracelet ever. And it sort of made itself when I was playing with some leftover pearls....

    Thank you eolian pearls. I feel better than expected, just some sore muscles. Not as bad as last time. I did make an all cherry peacock strand yesterday. I had som extra in another strand so I made it a little bit longer. It's very colorful. Hopefully I can take some photos next week or so. I also remade the Snowdrifts strand as well, I exchanged the white edisons for white south sea pearls, added some more blue pearls and made it a bit shorter. Much better. I am trying something else for those white edisons. I don't want to use it as an all white strand, I wouldn't use it. However pretty I haven't found any pearls that can rival my white south sea strand from Cees. Not even other south sea pearls or akoyas.

    Oh these are truly amazing Charlotta! Meant to be shining together, absolutely!

    I hope you feel OK after your third dose...I love cherry peacocks and was eying some at CMW as well...but I am starting my no-jewelry buy year so once again I unfollowed them on IG to escape the temptation So I am happy to hear I will be able to admire yours

    Thank you SurfnSci and CortezPearls. I did as you might remember remake the Fire and Ice strand, first I made Ice separately, then I used the Fire pearls in Rainbow Delight. Then I remade Ice as well, I did like Ice I just wanted to play some with some white edisons that I got from PearlRoadYW. They are very pretty. Then I added blue pearls and call this one Snow Drift, the blue tahitians being the shadows.

Maybe combining them with some other edisons and maybe south sea pearls. I can always find a home for those blue pearls in my designs.
    Since my experiment with edisons last summer, when I gave freshwater pearls a chance and found out that they really can be very lovely, I have given peacock tahitians a shot to impress me as well. In my opinion it's mostly a good thing to try to get over ones prejudice, unless it's about trying to eat dangerous herbs and mushrooms. Yet people tend to try wacky things like that. There I go rambeling about again...anyway I did buy a strand of cherry peacock circled tahitians from cmv pearls that did look really colorful. I have yet to see it in daylight but it looks promising. I haven't decided what to do with them yet, could make a strand out of them or I could try them with some edisons. I have put them on my window sill waiting for daylight. I will be getting my third vaccine dose today. If I feel fine after I might just play with them some. After the second dose I got all dizzy, tired, with headache and generally sore for three days. Hopefully it goes better this time.
    By the way I temporary added those last blue green tahitians from cmw pearls to my third version of Fairys treasure, a bracelet since my cat Kycklingen (the chicken) stole one of them and made it go under my stove. I retrieved it and will not let loose pearls stay open anymore (I do hear laughter from somewhere...) Anyway Fairys treasure
