    • Thank you so much! You are the talented one! I have done a lot of stringing but this was my first wire wrapping project.

          We just love your pearls!

          I've been in serious Tahitian lust lately, so I thought I should wear my own. Necklace and opal earrings from Kojima. Handwoven shawl, not that you can see much of it. This necklace just loves to be photographed.

          • Sea Urchin, I love the rich combination of purple and gold. Also I'm dying to see more photos of your new green Ts!

            BWeaves, your Tahitians are sensational. And I'm in awe of your weaving skills. I wish I was creative!

            • BWeaves, Tahitian lust is a serious condition...with only one cure...more Tahitians!

              I decided to restring an old strand of akoya pearls. This was the very first strand my parents gave to me when I turned 16. I used Ivory Beader's Secret, which worked well because the pearls yellowed quite a bit. They have a greenish blue overtone, and don't show any pink at all. Click image for larger version

                • And I should note, the pearls I restrung are over 40 years old...which seems impossible because I'm only 36 (not really, but in my head I am)

                  • Excellent job JP! The akoya are lovely, very romantic looking. And what a sweet gift from your parents all those years ago.

                    • Picked up a 9.4mm AA SoC pearl recently, so I dug up some ooooooold opals and a couple of red spinel, and paired them with 18 and 22kt yellow gold. Definitely a wabi sabi sort of necklace, but I'm glad to be making use of these opals 12 years after purchase LOL

                      • OOOOOO, I love that combination of pearls, opal and spinel and yellow gold. That is gorgeous.

                        • Thank you, BWeaves! I'm always in awe of your style, so that is really high praise!
                          I took a couple neck shots while on my way to a wildlife refuge today

                          • MSC- I love your style and creativity! So fun!

                            Today I thought I would mix it up with a Mother of Pearl necklace. It is a Navajo piece by Leroy Begay on a braided leather neckband. It is absolutely lovely in person. It is also interchangeable and I threw in a picture of the Kingman turquoise that goes with the neckpiece. Native American jewelry utilizes a great deal of Mother of Pearl. (Navajo pearls are one of my other pearl loves!)
