    Jacques' blue mix pearls and blue tourmaline beads. The beads' drill holes are so small and I had to leave out about 2 inches in total.

    • I am really loving the big pearl and gemstone roundel necklaces that you all are making. They are gorgeous.

      • Just gorgeous! The blue tourmalines are stunning. And those blues...Linda Ronstadt is singing "Blue Bayou" in my head....

          • Gorgeous combo! Did you string on designer wire? Some roundels have wicked tiny drill holes, sorry you got some of those. It's impossible to tell until one starts working with them.

              • Thank you everyone for your kind words on my first posting on this thread!!!

                @kelluvpearls OMG indicolite!!! one of the rarest of the tourmalines! and goes so beautifully with the blue tahitians! GORGEOUS! Haha and I totally feel your pain on the small drill holes and losing a few inches.

                @red LOVED your tahitian tourmaline strand - along with the Gellner collections inspired my layered tahitian strands! Thank you!

                @JerseyPearl you can always ask Kevin to get another HG strand on his next buying trip!

                @BWeaves - my strands from outside inward. 1) labradorite with little gold bracelets from when I was young. I can still disassemble them into individual bracelets! 2) labradorite with tahitians. 3) multi color sapphire graduated into black spinel (cuz I didn't have enough sapphires thank goodness the color worked out lol) spaced with tourmaline rubellite nuggets with tahitians. 4) pink rhodolite garnet with 1 single SoC pearl. I had a lot of fun making this set, thanks for asking!

                • I've been neglecting my 8-9mm Exotic FWP from 2008 (which I restrung last year with Baby Pink Pattye's Serafil thread) and lavender metallic studs.
                  They seemed like just the thing for this unseasonably chilly October afternoon.
                  This strand is one of my husband's favorites.

                      • BTW - I just strung my strands on Soft Flex - interested in knowing what @red & @kelluvpearls used, too!

                          • Today I wore a new-to-me strand of circled baroque silver Tahitians I purchased from pkinnew. They were originally from Pearl Paradise, and were chosen by our own newberry. Earrings are Sea of Cortez baroques from Agustus that I wired up myself and hung from 14kt yellow gold hoops. These pearls are on the short list for a future upgrade by a real jeweler.

                            As for my new Tahitian and tourmaline rope, I put the rondelles on a temp wire of 7 Strand Beadalon in Satin Silver Size XS (.012" or 0.30 mm), which is colored nylon coated stainless steel. I was checking out the composition before taking it in for professional stringing. When I arrived at the jeweler, they said it looked fine, and only charged me to attach the clasp.
