  • Terrible lighting but I'm digging this combo. Gotta work on my layering game - I'm determined to reach baby nurse-level layering ability!

        • This is a great time to announce that I picked up one of battah's treasures. I wore it today along with my baby pistachio akoya. Such a fun piece, and perfect with this summery top. Thank you, battah!

                      • I'll have to look back at Ruckus photos, Cathy!

                        • Oh, boy ... I know Hisano took pictures, and Ruth or Wendy??? But I don't have a copy myself. I wore it Ruckus 2015 with a blue, yellow and white sundress. Wore it again 2016 but I don't think there are photos of that once with the sweater. Mostly I remember how TINY the holes in those pearls were lol ... I had to change the embroidery idea I had, and couch down the strings of pearls, as no needle I could find would fit those holes, although Marianne has since recommended a beading needle that might work.

                            • I was out at a local consignment shop today and found a strand of akoyas. They were a bit grimy and were priced lower than a strand of imitation SSP next to them.

                              They're about 6mm-9mm. The 14K white fish hook clasp has 3 small diamonds (or at least that is what they were sold as.)

                              Here it is after a bath. I'm going to restring it. It's 19.75" at present. There aren't gaps between the pearls, but I could see it being a bit shorter after restringing.

                              I think they were worth my $38.
