  • Welcome mskuj. We love to see your pearls

    Comment


    • I'm drooling over everyones' pearls, as usual. As soon as life settles down for me (I finish taking a work certification exam, and IRS tax season slows down) I'll start posting more photos of my daily pearls.

      • Thank you, Charlotta, SydK, eolian, Pareltje, and CathyKeshi! Yes, itís a new rope. You guys know my collection well! Sorry Charlotta, I was trying to edit the post and then I got duplicate photos, so I deleted the post and started over. You mustíve caught me during the edit. Thank you so much, Cathy, for your so very nice compliments.

        SydK, another winning combination! And eolian, all the blue Akoya are so pretty. I love all the shades!

        So glad you decided to join in, mskuj! Those pesky wish lists are never ending...

        I have been playing with more earrings, adding stones and fossils. Havenít taken pics of all of them, but hereís one of the fossilized coral. The pattern reminds me of an Asian print. Worn with a silver Tahitian rope I knotted with pearls from Pearls By The Bay, and a coral and Akoya rope from Kojima.

          • That explains it Jeg, it thought it was weird. I thought I had become totally nuts there for a minute, haha. Your new earrings are beautiful, the fossilized coral is perfect with those silvery tahitians.

            • Today it's Kasumis and ripples. The earrings are real Kasumi pearls with amethyst. The shorter necklace is from Kojima, and the longer one from the sister site Pacific Pearls.

                • My goodness, BWeaves, the colors!!!

                  Comment


                  • Looking good!
                    Jeg, I love your fossilized corals...I've been working on a pair of earrings using elongated, slightly fan shaped stones. I have a pair of ovals I'm going to set next! I never would have sought out this stone, except for the fact that my youngest daughter asked me to hunt for some coral fossils last year in Tucson. She's working on a PhD in geochemistry and is studying stable isotopes in fossilized sea creatures. Apparently they tell quite a story!

                    • Thanks so much, Charlotta, eolian, 86C and Jersey Pearl! Eolian, a silver rope is very versatile!

                      BWeaves, all such pretty colors of Kasumi and FW’s!!

                      JerseyPearl, your daughter sees fossils and thinks in scientific terms I have to google. I see fossils and think, cool! I also have some ammonite fossils I’m anxious to use, some stalactites, and some other pretty stones.

                      Sparkle and Spice necklace from Kojima, with a color banded Tahitian necklace, and SS and Tahitian keshi earrings I put together.

                      • BWeaves, your Kasumi and FW Ripples are stunning ... I love those bright greens; brings life to the colors.

                        That fossilized coral is so pretty Jeg; and Oceanscove, I saw your grey "snowflake" stones; lovely! I have some pieces from New Mexico, sand beige in color with white patterns; the pendant centerpiece is a fossilized sand dollar. An under-appreciated stone, both for beauty, and it sounds like for scientists

                        • Bweaves, I’m so happy to see your lovely kasumi earrings and ripples again. Those pacific pearl ripples are one of my favourite strands here. The perfect ripple strand is still on my pesky endless wish list, though it’s dropped down below blue akoyas for now...
                          Jeg, I love the corals with the Tahitians.
                          Circles for me today.

                          • JEG and SydK: Love your pearls.

                            Today I'm wearing freshwaters and lapis. In the necklace with the large lapis beads, I replaced the small, dull, dinky pearls with 9 mm Freshadamas from PP, and now the necklace looks so much better. I also added a large orbit clasp. The other lapis necklace has Rice Krispie pearls, small lapis beads, and two large carved lapis beads. Both necklaces have fluted gold beads, so I think Mom bought them from the same vendor. Earrings are lapis with a diamond halo. All pieces are from Mom.

                            I didn't used to like these necklaces together, but since I added the large orbit clasp to the bigger necklace, they really nest nicely now.

                            • Beautiful ripples and lapis strands Bweaves. It's great to see you and your pearls again.
                              Another beautiful combination Jeg, that sparkle and spice always catches my eyes.
                              Love your circled tahitians SydK, circled tahitians is always so interesting to look at, usually so many color combinations. I never get bored. Well I might if I examine those early circled tahitians that I bought so many years ago, pretty boring and many of them dull. Every time I look through them I throw away some, usually heavily blemished as well. I know better now.
