    • Laguna - That's a great length on you. That may be one reason you find so many uses for it. (Besides the fact that it's gloriously gorgeous!)

          • Cicadalady, those pearls remind me of yummy ice cream scoops melting! They look so fluid!

            Laguna, Beautiful pearls! They really look very classy.

                    • Thank you ladies! Oh I always wish "I would love to see the whole outfit!!" when seeing someone's beautiful pearls, so I kind of tried to sneak mine in the photo))

                      Camelotshadow, I hope you feel better today! I would definitely call them near-rounds, but pearlparadise strictly called them baroques) I think it's cause they have rather bumpy surface for near-rounds.. but they do have some character in person)) thank you!

                      • I'm sure this is a stupid question, but how in the world does one take pictures of oneself like ya'll have done? I just got a smartphone (I had a dumb phone, which has a camera but the camera is horrible, but my office recently got me smartphone) and I tried, but I couldn't center them or crop them as I'd want to take photos for this thread. Do ya'll take them all in mirrors or is there some app which allows you to take photos with the cropping ya'll use? (By the way, I know I spell "ya'll" incorrectly, but I've been doing it so long my fingers refuse to type it differently). Sorry for the swerve, but I have some new strands and a floating Kamoka Tahitian I want to post. Plus, my new 35" BB from Pearls of Joy should be here any day, and I really want to take photos. Thanks.

                        • Brit, there's two ways. One is to set the reverse camera mode, so you can see on the screen what you are getting a selfie of. The other way is to have the camera facing forward, go to a mirror so you can see what's on the screen (you look at your phone in the mirror to see its screen), and take a picture of yourself that way. It's how I get ear shots. Or you can take a picture of your reflection too. The cropping can either be done in the phone photo app, or on a PC photo editing program (Microsoft has one that comes standard with windows).

                          • Brit, I use the snap seed app for photo editing in my phone (it's free!).

                            • BritM:

                              I take a selfie either by using reverse camera mode, or by doing it in the mirror like cmd2014 says.

                              Then I upload my photos to my MacBookPro and edit the heck out of them. I crop them. Zap my zits away. Wipe out my work name tag details, etc. etc. Then I post the photo here.

                              There is a way to crop photos in my iPhone, but it's just easier to do it all on my laptop.

                              So, no, my selfies don't look like what I finally upload. My aim isn't that good.

                              • Fireballs again today, but this time as a choker. Included the earrings, as well . 97 degrees F and humid today, so vintage Laura Ashley dress keeps things a bit cooler at work.
