  • I would love to see a closeup of that necklace BWeaves! I've never seen anything like it and it is perfect for the fall!

    I may not comment on all the posts, but I love this thread. Seeing everyone wearing their beauties makes me think I don't wear mine enough and your photos provide ideas and inspirations to do more with my pearls. Thank you all!

      • Thanks pkinnew!

        I had a little fun today with some bronzy, metallic baroque FWP that I was not wearing as a strand.

        I bought some inexpensive (dirt cheap, actually) rose gold colored chain, head / eye pins and clasp findings at Michaels and combined them with a copper and resin pendant I also had been neglecting, to make this necklace. I also made a 2" extender, in case I ever want to wear it longer.

        The base metal eye pins are a bit thicker than the silver and gold filled pins I normally use, and I had to use my bead reamer to widen the drill hole a bit.

        I did not wrap both ends. Using the eye pins, it was only necessary to wrap on one end. The eye pin can be opened like a jump ring to connect to the wrapped ring of the previous pearl. It went fast.

          • I've been out of town for a week but I just got back! I brought a few pearly pieces with me but I mostly wore my ripple tin cup
            the light in the room washes out the pearls and makes them look so brassy, they have better colors in real light.

                        • Anyone else like shell cameos? My mother collected them when we lived in England in the 1960s. Everyone else was going mod, but my mother loved the Victorian stuff. I started collecting them, too.

                          Left: Victorian cameo bought in Strafford Upon Avon, England in 1980. Right: Cameo bought in Florida, USA. I love that she's wearing a pearl necklace.

                          My wedding dog collar custom made in 1982. I found the cameo at a jewelry store and it had no setting and he put a yellow gold frame around it. The jeweler made the clasp different (white gold) per my request, so I could wear either the cameo or the clasp in front for different looks. He tried to talk me into bigger diamonds, and I just couldn't afford the extra money at the time. In hindsight, I wish I had splurged an extra $500 for 5 pointers, instead of the 3 pointers I asked for. I added the smaller pearls near the cameo and the clasp recently, as I wanted the necklace to fit a little looser and I didn't have enough extra pearls from the original strands.

                          And today it's my Vietnamese blue akoya necklace with blue topaz and diamond earrings, and my Japanese fisherman top.
