  • I love everything on this page.
    The keshi earrings on the lace background made me think they were depressions in a desert landscape. It took a minute for my eyes to flip the image to pearls on lace.

    JEG, I love the pendant and pearl chain, and especially the Sea Glass necklace. I always think of that one as "the one that got away."

    • I hope this is ok, lilpearl, I wanted to get a better look at your earrings. Yowza! Gorgeous!

      • Hi Bweaves, I love your brain, what a vision! Anyway, this was sort of an obscure photo of the main body of the pearls, but the photo shows the lightning-strike effect that shows very neatly irl.

        I made a whole series of photos trying to isolate things like the soap bubble effect, the perfect surface of the nacre, and the undulations, because one shot couldnít capture all of it. It was fun but frustrating with a cell phone. I suppose the new models are trying to accommodate frustrated photographers, but I just paid off this one (huff), and Iím not in the business. I just like taking pictures.

        Thats a dead giveaway that Iím old, to be even comparing digital cameras with film, lol.

          • I've been wearing pearls almost every day, but not been photographing them.

            Yesterday I loaded up on black pearls. SoC ring from Douglas and PP in front of my loom.

            The fabric currently on my loom. I couldn't unsee the crazy clown faces, so I rethreaded the left side so it matches the zig zag section on the right side. This is Tencel in 4 different colors. It's not dyed. The pattern is woven in.

                • Lilpearl, your south sea earrings and pendant are gorgeous.
                  Eolian pearls, your tahitian pendant is beautiful and goes so well with your sweater? Those triple earrings are really special as well.
                  Bweaves, gorgeous tahitians and weaving. You create such beautiful fabric.

                  • Yes, the SoC ring is in rose gold. The SoC pearl has intense hot pink colors around the base and intense teal green at the top. It was slightly pear shaped, but I had it mounted point down. It probably should have been a pendant, but I really wanted a ring and this was my favorite pearl that Douglas brought to Ruckus for me to choose from.

                    Today, Kojima ombre' tin-cup with Greg Who hanging off it. Pale peach ripples, also from Kojima. POJ white metallic drops hung on my Mom's diamond hoops.

                    The ombre' tin-cup looks really different when I wear it with the clasp in front, because that's where all the pink, white, and gold pearls are. The Tahitians are all behind my neck this way.

                    From when I was going through my Princess Diana phase in the 1980's. Garnet and diamond halo ring. This is an amazing garnet. People always think it's a ruby because it's in a nice setting and it has good color and sparkle. But the back facets of garnets always look black compared to rubies, which is one way to tell the difference. This ring was not very expensive, but it looks amazing.

                    After I bought the garnet, I told myself that if I ever found a pear shaped amethyst in a similar setting, I'd buy it. The jeweler must have read my mind, because a few months later this ring showed up. It flashes different colors.

                    • Wow! What a lovely assortment of pearl Jewelry!
                      I love the SoC pearl ring with the pave diamonds...the rosť pink is my favorite against green pearls.
                      And that Lily Pad ring...it's just lovely! It's something my wife would love to wear (she is mostly an earring and bracelet girl )
                      Lovely garnet too!
