  • BWeaves, Pareltje, jeg, thank you ladies!

    pattye, yes, they are stretchy bracelets) I've sent you a dm with links)

    Pareltje, what a nice bracelet! I now have an itch for some SoC pearls, after all these posts on PG)))) or smooth Kasumies of BWeaves.. I think Sarah has also recently posted photos of a smooth vintage strand... I don't think I've seen smooth Kasumi in real life, I wonder what is the color variation on them?..

    Inspired by BWeaves last week, I was wearing my baroque silver and white akoyas today together)

        • Lugana, that's an elegant way to wear your baroque akoyas. Blues and whites, I'm dreaming of summer in the Mediterranean!

                      • BWeaves, your swan is special and your drops are drool worthy.
                        Today it's sunny and I want to wear something light. I just combine 1 pendant and 2 charms together. Click image for larger version

                              • Wow, everyone! I'm drooling.

                                Yesterday it was Swans as far as you could see. And blues.

                                Today, one of my weaving friends showed an old pearl necklace she had inherited 30 years ago. I just assumed she wanted me to restring it, and we all laughed because she did, but she didn't want to ask. It's definitely fake based on the look of the drill holes. If I rub two pearls against each other they are smooth, not gritty. And the clasp looks plated. The pearls have darkened with age, but they have a nice soap bubble effect. They're actually quite pretty and they have a nice graduation from 9 mm for the center pearl down to 3 mm at the clasp.

                                The necklace is 16 inches long, and too short for her thicker neck. So we agreed that I would try to add crystals in between the pearls to lengthen it. Since it's graduated, I'm not going to knot it except at the ends.

                                Here's the "before" photos after I gave them a nice bath. The "after" photos will come later.
