  • BWeaves, so many things to appreciate about this look, but mostly it is making me want to try pearl drops hanging from larger hoops...

    • Kay, I love both looks and the matching nail polish!

      Orbit clasps are so versatile, it's amazing. Even the look at the bottom is interesting enough to be a dangle in its own right.

      • JerseyPearl, THANK YOU! Thank you for redrilling a couple of my Ruckus blue akoya pearls with challenging holes. I decided to even put the ugly pearl back in the strand. I put both by the last clasp, because the holes were larger and that's where I need a little extra width to work the ends of the thread back through.

        The strand was originally 22" with a ball clasp.

        The strand after restringing the first time with an orbit clasp, but missing the two challenging pearls.

        I actually liked that length, but I wanted to use all the pearls, since I bought them. After redrilling and restringing again. The orbit clasp added one pearl length to the necklace.

        Since I couldn't simultaneously wear them and restring them, I decided it was a amethyst kind of day.

          • Very lovely amethyst setting! Is that a diamond or a seed pearl on the lower left side? My iPad doesn't show it clearly...

            • Bweaves I love your chain. This is the one that can connect to various pendants? Did I remember wrongly?

              • I love that amethyst! (My birthstone, so I am partial.) The setting is so unique and beautiful. You have a great jeweler.

                • Today I wore the same 3 Kamoka Tahitians on a leather cord that I posted a couple days ago. While I was picking figs, the knot became loose on the leather cord and all 3 pearls fell into my gathered figs (fortunately I was home when it happened!). They looked so lovely together sitting on the kitchen counter, I couldn't resist taking a photo of the 'miniature figs' with the real figs!

                  • Thank you. That's a diamond with the amethyst. Yes, that's one of my chains with the swappable pendants. They connect at the edges of the pendant with a really cool clasp that is almost invisible.

                    LM, That's a work of art. I thought it was a famous still life for a minute. Love it.
                    And I love the pearls with the chambray shirt, too. I love pearls and denim or anything dyed with indigo. They just go.

                    • lmgarden...your figs!!! Now I understand your name. BTW, our figs aren't ripe just yet...but maybe by the weekend. Try them grilled with gorgonzola cheese...delish! And those Kamokas...TDF!

                      BWeaves, happy to help out a pearl sister in need! I am so glad the drilling went smoothly. And wow, a strand of those beautiful pearls...my new want/need/want.

                            • BWeaves - beautiful blue pearls! They are stunning. The amethyst necklace is TDF.

                              Lmgarden - beautiful photo. How lucky that they just happened to fall into a bowl of soft figs!

                              • LM: I can't get over how much I love those three pendants together on a leather cord.

                                1. I would have never thought of using more than one pendant at a time.
                                2. I would have thought the bails clashed, but I really love the different bails together. I really like the way that looks.
                                3. Must buy more pearls.
