  • Ok….the mail came!!!!! I feel like a kid with a new toy. I put them on and immediately felt beautiful. It’s funny how there was so much magic in one little box. I have wanted a nice strand of pearls my whole life, and now 3.5 weeks away from turning 60 just look! They are perfect!

        • Donna, they are perfect! Happy early birthday to you!! I have a feeling you won’t be taking them off any time soon!

          Thanks, Douglas and Donna! Donna, the shoes were handmade by a young Turkish gentleman who used to sell them at our local Saturday Market. They were all rather one of a kind because he would use scraps of leather. I have a couple other colors, too.

          Green Tahitian strand from PP. I purchased these on my very first visit to the vault. Worn with a mixed Tahitian strand and earrings I made.

            • JEG, great pearls and cool shoes!

              Donna, wow, those are gorgeous.

              It's my birthday today and I'm celebrating by doing nothing. I want to stay home in my jammies and play with my toys (my Japanese braiding stands). I currently have both my marudai and my takadai warped up with various silk braids.

              • BWeaves HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Sounds like a perfect day to me! CathyKeshi I have plenty of golden retriever photos, and a Rhodesian ridgeback. jeg those pearls are just luscious! Thanks for the story on the shoes. Mine are made my a little shoe company from a several years back. CortezPearls Lisa c, and all …thanks for sharing in my joy of my new pearls! They are on again! I’m so thrilled with them! So last night I ordered from PP a silver blue Akoya baroque strand ….. after all, I think I deserve them. Not so sure my husband is thrilled … Although he said I seemed to glow wearing the pearls.

                have a great weekend everyone. Enjoy!

                • DonnaH...your new pearls look wonderful on you--gorgeous luster and a perfect size. And how nice that your husband noticed you glowing as you wear them. (I just ordered silver blue akoya pearl necklaces from PP, too!)

                  Jeg, I continue to marvel at how well you put clothing and pearls together. And that anklet is such a neat mix of gems and pearls.

                  Happy Birthday, BWeaves! I'm looking forward to seeing whatever you do with your braiding stands. It sounds like fun.

                    • AzFlyGirl, those ripples are gorgeous on you.
                      jeg, that anclet is really colorful, pretty and fun. Your ombre south sea and tahitian rope is marvellous and I love those tahitian strands.
                      DonnaH, your new strand looks so great on you.
                      BWeaves, happy birthday. What is it you are braiding? Do you have a photo of your projects.

                      • DonnaH Congrats on your lovely new pearls, and your soon to arrive blue akoyas! I also bought some silvery blue baroque akoyas from PP a few years ago and they were "gateway pearls" for me, lol. Now I'm obsessed

                        Happy b-day, BWeaves!

                          • OK, here's a few photos. I just got my Takadai (high braiding stand) so I'm still learning and braiding samples. I currently have a double layer braid on the Takadai with 50 tama (bobbins). The little things with the pegs are called koma, and they help keep all the strands of thread separate and in order, so they don't tangle while I'm braiding.

                            Can you tell that Tinker Toys were my favorite toys when I was little? I'm still drawn to wooden equipment that feels like giant Tinker Toys.

                              • BWeaves t looks like fun. What do you do with those pretty braids when you are finished. They could be cool at the end of a shirt, what's it called? Like a hem. Or do they have a more traditional use?
                                eolian pearls, that pendant is so pretty.
