  • Thank you all . It’s nice to be back on PG, although I’ll have to keep reminding myself that I’m just looking at everyone’s lovely pearls, not making a pearly shopping list…

    eolian pearls, great memory! yes, I do have some colourful circles from CMW, though I think mine have more blues and browns and less pinks and greens than yours. I love CMW pearls - they’re definitely part of the reason I now find myself on Ban Island.

    Today’s pearls - bronze-toned freshies (from Kongs, I think).

    • Thank you all for all the lovely comments. Those Happy bracelets were so fun to make and I love wearing them. This one, the one with the lilac skull and the white and golden south sea one are my most used ones. I have 10 Happy bracelets so perhaps i woun't be making anymore soon...best of all I made them with leftover pearls and didn't have to wait for any packages...
      SydK beautiful bronzey strand

      • Thank you ladies, I am sooo in love with this colorful bracelet; yes Cathy, I keep staring at the pearls most of the day not really getting much done...luckily for me the high season is over on the island so now relaxing times until next spring...I can get distracted by pearls alI I want :-)
        SurfnSci so so hard to stay on the ban island! So many temptations...but two weeks for me today, so curious to see how long I resist...And curious to see what you got from Kojima’s...
        SydK very pretty colorful pearls! Great with your dress!

        • SydK Your bronze-toned strand is really lovely and metallic; there are so many pretty colors throughout, too, especially that purple-y gold pearl to the right of center!

          Today I'm wearing a Vietnamese akoya that came in a blue strand from Pearlescence; this pearl appeared almost lime green in some lighting, so I decided to save it for a ring. Mounting it has been a little challenging since it's full-drilled, and I'm not completely sure I like the current setting, so it stays on my work-in-progress list

          • SurfnSci Wow, that's a really special pearl - what a colour! I can see why you kept it for a ring. FWIW, I like the setting - the simple setting really highlights the pearl

            • eolian pearls, you’ve reminded me how much I like my little circles from CMW. Wearing them today with another strand made from Tahitians, including more CMW circles (blue bracelets - I think you and Charlotta have sister strands from the same batch?), carved labradorite beads, and dyed freshwater keshi.

              • SurfnSci gorgeous akoya pearl. I also like that setting. Very pretty.
                SydK very pretty circled tahitians. I haver bought 5 blue bracelets from cmw pearls, they are in my ombre blue tahitian strand and in my Oceans Wave strand. eolian pearls and I do have sister rainbow bracelets. I am accually wearing mine tidy. I made a stretch bracelet out of it and used a red jasper skull to hide the knots.

                • SurfnSci oh wow!! Your blue akoya is really amazing! Such a beautiful pearl. I’d like to stare at it on the finger all day like you

                  SydK all the strands look lovely on you. Your clothes got great colour coordination with your pearls

                  • I got married to this wonderful man two days ago and wore many (most?) of my pearls at the wedding, reception and after-party. If I had been on the red carpet and someone asked me "Who are you wearing?" I would have answered: "I'm wearing Kamoka, Kojima, Pearl Paradise, Pearls of Joy, and Perlas del Mar de Cortez." Thank you to all you beautiful people who farm, design, and buy this most marvelous of gems.

                        I love it! And I wish I could find more blue akoya as blue as that. I suspect global warming is affecting the colouration, which is serendipitous at best

                            • SurfnSci I LOVE your ring! It showcases the incredible blue of the akoya so well! Beuatiful! Can I ask how big is the pearl?

                              SydK Lovely circles! Yes I remember them well, the start of my fall down the CMW rabbithole;-)

                              I got 6 bracelet strands from them all together, not blues ( I was always late for those, why is that Charlotta? ;-))), but the circles, a rainbow ombre, two multicolors and two dark ones...Still waiting for the last three but in the meantime I received my new favorite tin cup made by Margaret of Simply Adorned with the CMW multicolors (and a few Druzy pearls as well). The design is exactly like Jeg’s tin cups with open orbit clasps on both ends and on bracelet as well...I LOVE that design Jeg, you are a genius!!! So many possibilities!!!! Dufficult to capture the colors but here we go....Click image for larger version
