        • Thanks newberry and 2thdktr. What with stopping to take photos and post them, it was a while before I managed to get out the door!

          The pearls picked up the color of the walls: Benjamin Moore "Breath of Fresh Air".

                The last one with a white gold, a pearl and rubies I don't remember from whom I bought it. The pearls in that necklace is really worn, but not the clasp.

                • Gorgeous pearls, everyone! What a nice pick-me-up this afternoon! PD those goldens are just heavenly. And Charlotta your clasp collection is fabulous!

                  Today’s fun pearl piece that I just made. I love cuffs, but they slide around a lot on my wrists so I may look into some kind of lining. But I love the look. I chose a freshwater button for this one, and hand-sculpted the flower from sterling metal clay. Cuff is ebony.

                              And Mom's freshwater bracelet. I'm going to restring it tonight. One of the strands feels loose and it's not knotted between the pearls.
