  • I've had some of my pearls restrung and incorporated other pearls and gems to refresh the originals.

    I bought this pastel baroque strand on eBay and was disappointed that it looked washed out in real life. I was on the verge of returning it when I decided to mix in some 6.5mm gold freshwater pearls. That solved the contrast problem, but as a necklace, it felt too retro for my taste.

    One day, I tried them as a bracelet. Voila, they are now my go-to hand ornament.

    These grey potatoes were my first "big" pearls, and I loved their chunkiness. Still, I thought they could be more contemporary. So I rummaged through my toolbox and found topaz cushions that became the new focal point. The inclusion of two silver spacer beads was not part of the plan, but I thought they gave it an unexpected touch--like a pretty model with a gap between her front teeth.

    • That does make a really lovely bracelet! Try to make sure you don't admire it so much driving that you crash though.....

        LOL, Amanda! Very nice bracelet and I really love the blue topaz stones. I love your analogy of the gap-toothed model!

          • I said before I often wear my 5-6mm oval lavender freshwaters for work, as I love the colour, and they are low-key enough for my dresscode. They are 35 inches long, no clasp, so I often put them round my neck doubled and knot the ends together:

            • Nice bracelet and l like the grey pearls with the blue topaz necklace very much, cyndayco!
              Love the styling of your lavender ovals Amanda - round the neck doubled and knotted at the front. That looks great!

                • I love my lavender pearls - I have some round ones, too, and the colours are just spectacular.

                  • Lavender are a personal favourite with me too. These days there are really dark lavender (purple) pearls available more easily than ever before and I love those too!

                      This is how I'm wearing a few strands today...I'm going for over the top with casual, so I'm wearing a plain long sleeved tee, khakis and tory flip flops.

                              Thanks! It's actually 4 different strands...three baroques and a triple strand of akoya. The akoyas are 7-7.5mm and the baroques all start at 12mm and go to around 15mm. One of the strands is a flame ball. I love doing different combos with pearls.

                              • Amrita, I love how you paired the pearls with the spacer beads...and that color of pink is gorgeous with your skin tone.
