    • Stunning bubbly bracelet eolian pearls. I have been thinking about mixing south seas, tahitians and freshwater pearls some day and making a rope or something. I know that there are really pretty freshwater pearls, because I have some in my rainbow strand. The only freshwater pearls I have on hand is eggshaped ones. Maybe an autumn project. Maybe I am done with the circled south pearls then...

      • Thank you, Charlotta, Douglas, and eolian! What?! You were up my way, Douglas? Next time, you’ll have to let me know!
        I had the ponzu salmon!

        Eolian, your bubble bracelet turned out so pretty! What a nice mix of pearls and colors. Enjoy wearing it!

        One of the few things left on my list was a rope of dark circled Tahitians. It has been on my list forever because I kept finding other things. I finally put one together with pearls from JNB Gems. Charlotta, JNB Gems is an Etsy shop. I have bought several things from them this past year. When I have placed an order, they have custom drilled the pearls and shipped the same day. The Tahitian keshi bracelet was the best surprise. When CathyKeshi and I were doing show and tell in Santa Monica, she had a few loose keshi that were extras from a project, and she gave them to me to use. They were perfect for a bracelet!

        • Love these Tahitian ringed/circled pearls...specially since they have just ONE ring (for the most part) and right in the middle! It just makes it really unique! The colors are deep, the luster magnificent. Just lovely!
          Lovely keshi bracelet too!, they look quite large! How big are they? Sorry that I always ask "technical" questions

          • That keshi bracelet is stunning jeg and so is the circled tahitian rope. Amazing luster on those circles. And thank you for the information about jmb gems. I have to check them out one day.

            • I'm drooling over the circled Tahitians rope, JEG. I LOVE it. That would be my favorite T rope ever.

              Comment


              • Your circle Tahitian rope that you made is gorgeous, jeg! I knew it was only a matter of time!! And your keshi bracelet is just as lovely!

                I’ve posted only twice since the website changed, and I’m not yet sure how to post large images from my iPad.

                Images posted below (although not in action) are 3 necklaces I purchased at the mini PP ruckus that I had forgotten about - and they were still waiting for me after 2 years!!
                A dark circle Tahitian rope (not quite as dark IRL, but very colorful)
                A matching multi color SS rope from Jacques
                A Tahitian souffle
                And last but not least a large fw Chinese feather pearl necklace from Pacific Pearls that I bought last month when jeg, newberry and I visited Kojima Pearls.

                • Thanks Douglas, Charlotta, BWeaves, and lmgarden! Douglas, hmmm, I’m not sure on the keshi mm. I am guessing around 9-10? Wow, BWeaves, that surprises me! I take that as a big compliment since you have, and have seen, so many T’s! lmgarden, seeing your rope at PP was the impetus I needed to finally check that off my list. I think Jun had just posted these pearls, so it was perfect timing for putting this rope together.

                  Two, J. Hunter Fiji bracelets. The toggle bracelet is from Fiji, and the bracelet in front was put together with pearls from PP. Worn with a carved Tahitian pendant on a vintage Akoya keshi strand from Kojima.

                  • Good morning! My right hand is doing not so fine...having issues writing
                    Will keep it short!
                    I have a soft spot for Fijian Pearls...I love what Justin is doing with them.
                    That "Feather Necklace" is very lovely!

                        • Been away for a bit, caught up in finishing a "work" project ... and I'm just stunned by all the beautiful pearls posted here! WOW, ringed and circled dark and lustrous, mysterious Tahitians ... bright and bubbly bracelets ... a MUCH appreciated closeup look at some lovely feather pearls ... a few keshi jumped ship and adopted a new owner .... Thank you all for posting such beauty! Douglas, PLEASE rest those broken bones ... please.

                          • Thank you Cathy! I am trying. My bones have almost healed BUT the doctors said I also had suffered a type/level-2 injury on the wrist's ligaments (could not be evaluated when I was all swollen) so I'm doing daily therapy at a local clinic. Seems this wrist injury is the most pressing issue...and painful when you try to do anything. My attempts at becoming a "leftie" are ludicrous!

                            • Stunning pearls you found lmgarden. That south sea strand looks delicious
                              jeg, beautiful bracelets and that carved pearl pendant is just perfect
                              eolian pearls, I can see why that bracelet is your current favorite. I have been toying with an idea to combine pastelly tahitians, golden south sea pearls that are not deep and freshwater pearls in softer colors. I only have those very purple freshwater pearls and some smallish peachy egg shaped ones right now. I checked some edison strands out on etsy but they mostly looks to dark. A project for autumn.

                              • Thank you, Douglas, eolian, Cathy and Charlotta!

                                Douglas, how did I miss hearing about your injury?!! Please take care of yourself and heal quickly!

                                Eolian, it’s a perfect summer, or any season bracelet! Fun to gaze at with all the different types of pearls. Charlotta, I see the wheels spinning for a future project.

                                Cathy, I love the keshi- thank you!

                                Tin cup and earrings I put together with SS keshi.
