  • Thank you for the information, eolian! I am more familiar with that white swirl side of the shell. The species I have found on beaches are not conducive to drilling. They are very thick and shaped more like half of a marble.

    More pics of my tri-colored strand from Cees. Earrings are golden SS and white freshwater.

    • That strand is gorgeous jeg.
      There are so many beautiful shells to be found, somewhere else. In sweden there aren't that many pretty ones. I think that they are beautiful with pearls, perhaps not the blue mussels that we use as bait. They are also quite big, and not all that blue either

          • Thank you, Charlotta, eolian and Douglas! Yes, Spring is finally here! I think we favor the same seasons, eolian. I love the light and sunshine, and I am anxiously awaiting the blooms from the bleeding hearts and columbines. Always my Spring favorites.

            Two Kojima feather pearl mixed strands, with freshwater earrings I made.

            • jeg, your mixed strands are pretty! What is "feather pearl"?

              Comment


              • I love the mixed necklaces too Jeg! And yes spring and summer full of sun and flowers are definitely my favorite seasons.

                Back to feather pearls as far as I understand these are non nucleated FWP (second harvest?) with distinct lines that make them look like feathers, I see them as “angel wings”. I have also discovered them on PG, specifically BWeaves has a lovely angelwing pendant from Kojima that absolutely won me over. So yes, of course, in case you were wondering, I DO have a feather pearl in my mega stash in the US waiting to get to me when the time is right...:-)

                • Lovely ombre' JEG! Gorgeous feather, eolian pearls! That's a very pretty one. Prettier than mine.

                  Today, Nana's pearls. Double strand necklace with the clasp in front. Double pearl earrings.

                  For the newbies. The earrings and clasp are the original akoya pearls. The akoya strand attached to the clasp was 60 years old, not the best quality, and completely worn out after decades of constant wear by my nana and me.

                  I had PP replace the old akoyas with Freshadamas. I liked them so much, I had them match a second strand. The clasp will actually handle 3 strands, but the pearls would need to be smaller than than the 8 mm pearls I have attached right now. I like the two strands, and the way they look like they cross at the clasp.

                  • Thank you, @eolian pearls. What a lovely name for the pearl. Your feather pearl is phenomenal!


                    @BWeaves, your Freshadama necklace is gorgeous, and the clasp is stunning.

                      Here I am in my most recent purchases, a white South Sea strand and a Siam ruby bracelet. Couldn't be any happier with either of them. The WSS strand is so easy to wear casually like this or formally over a white dress shirt, it's incredible to me.

                      • Nice feather pearl strands jeg and yay finally spring. My crocuses are blooming.
                        I hope that you get all your pearls soon eolian pearls. I want to see them.
                        Bweaves, love your nanas strand. In my family there has never been any pearls to be found. Not even a pair of pearl earrings. To boring, looks like they all prefered gold. Maybe I'm adopted! I don't count the majolica strand my father bought my mother ones...
                        rokor, your new south sea strand looks great on you. I have a beloved white slightly baroque oval south sea strand from Cees that is perfect with everything. It's now my good white strand, I don't use the akoyas anymore so I made tassels and waveropes out of them instead.

                        • Thank you Charlotta, eolian, Starry Pearl and BWeaves! I hope you don’t have to wait too long for your next box of treasures, eolian! Elegant Akoya, BWeaves, and Roker, I’m sure you’ll find your new SS strand very versatile. Great looks, both!

                              Here are two looks I put together in a rush this afternoon, finally deciding on the blazer over the leather as it seemed more fitting and appropriate with the rope. Introducing my 70" Akoya rope and once again my WSS strand. Thanks for the warm welcome folks!
