  • The 2 strands are very compatible with each other! Beautiful.

    CrazyMissy, that was a well-chosen gift!

    • Wow, I've missed so much beauty last week!
      Jeg, those Tahitian strands are stunning worn together or alone!

      • CrazyMissy, what a wonderful gift. I completely understand about the itchies.

        JEG: I thought that was one double strand necklace, they match so well. They are gorgeous, and I wouldn't have even noticed the clasps were different colors if you had not pointed it out. I mix metal colors all the time. I even hook white gold orbit clasps to yellow gold ones and nobody notices. Then again, I have a lot of 2 color and 3 color gold jewelry, so people just assume that the linked necklaces are supposed to be that way.

        I don't have a photo yet, but I restrung my first akoya rope last night, again. I've got to learn not to do a choke hold on every freaking knot. Beader's Secret doesn't stretch or loosen up like silk does, so I don't need to knot as tightly. I need to just snug the knot up, not pull it till its breaking point. Anyway, the rope doesn't kink anymore, and looks a few mm longer. And I didn't need bandaids on my fingers because the thread didn't cut into them. You'd think I'd have the hang of this by now, but I don't do it every day so I haven't got muscle memory for knotting until I've done it three times in a row.

                • Jeg I'm so glad to see that it was you that got Pkin's beloved Kamoka strand. It goes perfectly with your Hawaiian strand. It was just meant to be. Enjoy your special strands.

                          • My husband came home...he was injured at work today. Traumatic amputation of the distal phalanx (the last segment) of his left middle finger.

                            He's uncomplaining (mind you, the anesthesia hasn't worn off yet) and is on the phone now setting up his follow-up ortho appointment and Worker's Comp, but I'm wearing pearls to help me feel better.

                            These are the 6.2-9.0mm akoyas with a diamond clasp that I found at the consignment store a few weeks ago. My $38 bargain.

                            • Oh, noes! Sorry about your husband's middle finger. Will he get an awesome splint, where he can accidentally flip everyone the bird and claim it's not his fault?

                              And I love your pearl find. I never find anything like that. Those are amazing, especially for the money.

                              • Oh goodness, PD, that's terrible! Can it be reattached? I hope they gave him some good pain meds.
