  • Ooooo, very nice. I like the combination and contrast of the different pearls.

    • I was feeling very pearly white the other day. Natural white Hanadama rope from PP worn with Nana's necklace (where I replaced the pearls with Freshadamas but kept the akoya clasp). New Hanadama studs from PP at Ruckus 2017. Mom's freshie bracelet and akoya ring.

              • Oooh, a hanadama rope! beautiful, BWeaves! Quick one: was it assessed/sold as a rope, or is it 2 hanadama strands restrung?

                • I ordered it from PP as a rope. They had to get the 36" rope special, because two 18" strands would not have matched exactly.

                  • Cute combo, enkeli.
                    BWeaves, you look fabulous with all those shiny white hanadamas.

                      • Bweaves, your white look is breathtaking! Those clasps are so special!!! Can you tell me what size are your hanadama studs? Those are on my wish lust :-)

                        • My Hanadama studs are 9 mm, and they are pinked, because the natural whites were just too white next to my face. You can see in my photos that the earrings are pinker than the necklaces, which are both silvery white.

                          My natural white Hanadama rope and Nana's replacement Freshadamas are all 8 mm. (I would have gone smaller on the Freshies, but they didn't have any smaller than 8 mm at the time.) I felt that the studs needed to be either bigger or smaller than 8 mm or it would all look too matchy matchy. Since I'd already owned 7 mm studs, and felt that they were now too small, and I just bought black and white Tahitian studs from Komoka in 9mm and liked the size, I went with 9 mm Hanadamas.

                          Oddly enough, the white Hanadamas look bigger on my ears than the B&W Tahitians. I remember Jeremy posting that white pearls always look bigger than black pearls. I find that to be true. Of my B&W pair, the light pearl looks bigger than the black one, but when measuring them, they are exactly the same size. And the Hanadamas are equally the same size as the B&W pair, but look bigger than the B&W pair.

                          Also, I had PP put bigger earring backs on my studs. I find them easier to handle and they make the earrings sit better on my earlobe.

                          I have a sister-in-law who said, "As I get older, I do not get fatter, but I get thicker." She's right. I swear my earlobes are thicker than they used to be. Old earrings now seem "tight" to me, and too small for my earlobes.

                          • Enkeli- I really like your mana pendant!

                            BWeaves- you look so crisp all in white. Looks beautiful together.

                            Today is a drippy, wet day. I was all covered up running errands.

                            This was originally a strand from a PP sale a long time ago. I decided to restring it into bracelets so it would get more wear. (and it is!)

                            • JEG: Very pretty. What did you use as a clasp?

                              As much as I love the orbit clasp, I've discovered that I cannot work it with one hand for a bracelet.

                              • Thanks BWeaves! I used orbit clasps. I have worn bracelets of all sorts forever, so I seem to be able to manage most any clasp. I thought about using the original ball clasp, but I wanted both bracelets to match so I went with what I had two of.
