  • Lol, BWeaves! You crack me up, but I so understand what you're going through. It is annoying to say the least. I made a really nice 60 inch tin cup and as pretty as it is, I just hate to wear it because I am always trying to fix the double layers so they don't tangle. Things they don't teach you in school...

    • Pearly Whites, I'm sorry about the dealings you have to go through with your aging parents. Hang it there! And even though your photos are sideways, we can all admire the beautiful necklace combo. They are both lovely but the tiny turquoise beads and akoyas really spark my interest. The color combo is beautiful!

      • PW - I'm sorry to hear that your parents are now in care. Such a difficult, difficult time. All of my friends now are in the same situation or at the end of it so I have seen how hard all the decisions are . And you are so right about sorting out possessions. I'm looking at selling my house in October and am taking serious stock of what's necessary. I wish you the best .

        Love the Turquoise- sleeping beauty is so pretty !

        MSC - I like Sticks ! They have a great lustre ! you might consider using a 6inch band of the stick pearls with either chain or 4mm round stones.? .

        • Pretty BWeaves! Some great suggestions above re revamping.

          • I've used sticks as accents (one pearl here or there), but I can't seem to make them work when it's mostly sticks. They work visually, but aren't any fun to wear. I'm in no hurry to revamp this one, even if I do steal the clasp for a strand of round pearls.

            P.S. The "gold" knots between the stick pearls are glass beads with a real gold surface coating. I'm very wary of what type of gold I use next to pearls, as certain gold colored beads can turn the pearls black.

            • BWeaves, cute sticks but LOVE the clasp. I'd totally poach the clasp for a bracelet...

              • I love the clasp, BWeaves. But I'm not sure I would wear stick pearls as a necklace as they flip a lot. Maybe as earrings, I'd wear.

                • My summer pearls. Light and airy and easy to wear. Reborn pearl necklace and earrings with twisty gold tube beads. It never photographs as good as it looks in real life because the pairs of pearls are flat and sit at right angles to each other.

                  Reborn pearls happen when a cultured pearl is removed from a mollusk and no new nucleus is implanted in that pearl sac. The mollusk goes back in the water and sometimes creates a pearl in that pearl sac. It's not really a keshi because it is a byproduct of the culturing process. But it's 100% nacre.

                  • Love your reborn pearl necklace Bweaves

                    • Oh that's so neat. When you said "reborn", I just assumed you'd taken a prior necklace apart and made a new one. I love PG; everyone is so knowledgeable, and so ready to share that knowledge. And I love your light necklace, perfect for summer.

                      I've always really liked stick-type necklaces on display, but have always been disappointed because they flip and lay wonky.

                      • BritM, I also thought that a while ago until I read something and found out I was wrong all along. I'm constantly learning new things!

                        Your reborn pearl necklace does look a lot lighter and cooler than a full strand. I like the shape of the pearls combined with the gold links. It's getting hot over here too and I find myself avoiding strands and reaching for chains.

                        • Yes, we went from an incredible dry spell last month to our normal summer monsoons this month. The humidity is 100% and it storms every afternoon. I just don't like wearing strung and knotted pearls in that kind of weather. It's time to dig out my summer pearls -- the reborn pearls, the Swan and the Hamantaschen, and my tin cup and pendants.

                            • Hi Ladies!

                              Wow I've been super behind this summer! Loved everyone's pearlies and stylings!

                              I've been going on a tear with my ombre strand and wear it a lot this summer. The string got loose and I had to restring it after I brought it back from my NOLA trip. Finally got it done and wearing it again today. Usually I like pairing the ombre with a tahitian rope, but it has been so hot in NYC I decided to pair it with baroque akoya rope for a lighter/cooler look! haha and yes today was curling iron day!
