              • Cathy! What a lovely bracelet— enjoy your new treasure!!

                BWeaves, I love your mix of ropes and swan with the casual wear. Where did you get the sparkly clasps? I think you said they were ordered from PP? Originally from Stuller (just guessing)?

                  • Two beautiful looks, jeg. (love the rain drop background in the last photo… Wonder what inspired that )

                    • JEG: I love both looks.

                      BN: The disco ball clasp on the Hanadamas was ordered special for me by PP. I asked for white gold with CZs instead of diamonds, and a screw clasp instead of a fishhook. I think PP was very hesitant about my request, but when the clasp came in, it looked amazing.

                      The clasp on my first akoyas is from Fire Mountain Gems. I don't know what the base metal is, but it's plated with gold and has crystals of some sort. It never tarnishes and the crystals are very sparkley. For a "faux" clasp, it's held up very well. I keep thinking of replacing it with a better quality clasp when it starts looking bad, but it looks great. It's also a screw clasp.

                      Both disco balls are incredibly sparkly in bright light.

                      For clasps I never intend to open I like the screw clasps because they just look like a bead. There's no claspy bit hanging out. For clasps I know I'll need to open and close a lot, I prefer the fishhook style or an orbit clasp.

                        • Thank you everyone; my photos do not begin to do justice to the translucent glow of these pearls! Josh, yes, the fit is perfection, with plenty of ease to fall down on my wrist, move around and yet stays "right side up" through a long day of shopping for hand dyed art yarns and dinner with family, and I LOVE it. I swear I can feel the tiny electric "life" tingles in those pearls. Walter says I have too much imagination ... he may be right

                          Jeg, those necklaces look wonderful; not surprising that keshi and Myanmar pendant one is my favorite.

                          • Cathy, so pleased the bracelet is perfect for you! I do love having pearls on my wrist where I can see them!

                            BWeaves & jeg, keep the creative looks coming!

                            • Cathy I love that bracelet !! And those Keshi are beautiful ...I can see how you were smitten !! And I love the photo with the yarn and knitting! Did you buy a trunkful ?? lol

                              jeg - lovely necklaces ! I find with decent plate that clasps can hold up pretty well, the screw type wouldn't have the metal bits rubbing against each other . And set with stones it can keep the metal back a bit and less rubbing on it. I've tried them from time to time when I want to see how a particular shade of gold .. say Rose Gold... works with certain pearls. Who wants to spend hundreds on a clasp to find it's not right.

                              • Thank you, Katbran. No, I didn't buy all the yarn today lol. That photo is the bracelet taken against a shawl I knit last year, with many colors, stripes and stitch patterns. There is however, a really SMALL bag with a couple of new skeins. And Walter got me a very nice little Anniversary present for next month ... somebody remind me to remind him to get the bag out and put a bow on it lol ...
