    Speaking of Sky. I just made this rope with Sky. Would probably use Storm if I had it in the right size, or Navy if I had it. Time to stock up
    My sis is modeling them for me. please ignore a simple tee, she was NOT in a mood to model really But you can probably see the Sky.

      The smallest is 8.5+ to the biggest 14.5mm. The total length is 60" w/a clasp (18K).
      No, it was not from Cees, it is mine . I combined 3 necklaces I got from Tasaki, Belpearl and Tara Pearls over the time. I tried to juxtapose the similar colors on both sides as much as I could, given my limited stock of sizes and colors in each size. Nevertheless, all top-notch in colors, luster/surfaces and mostly round or off-round. I am really happy how it turned out.
      Masik, I am in awe! You did a wonderful job combining the three strands. It's unbelievably beautiful!!

      • Well done Masik; well done ... and a truly stunning rope! Special thanks to your sister for modeling so you could ahare with us ... a great example that beautiful pearls can and should be worn even with a simple Tee shirt

          • I believe that is the very best part of owning strands of pearls...the ability to rearrange them and wear them as you see fit! What other fine jewelry item is so easily taken apart and remade by its owner? You've created the perfect necklace for you...one that you know you will wear, and one that can be recreated in a million different variations should you ever tire of it. Well done!!!

            • The earrings I ordered from Heather Benjamin should be here tomorrow. I'm really excited to see how they look. I think I'm still going to order the Beetle wing earrings with the smaller horn, too.

              Update....I decided to go ahead & get the Beetle wing earrings. Boy, I'm glad I did. It was the last pair. So, the large horn earrings will be here tomorrow & the Beetle wing horn earrings should be here by next week.

              • I haven't worn this combination before. Custom amethyst necklace from Karen Brown Jewelry. TNT strand from Ocean's Cove, and my baroque blue akoya rope from PP, freshly restrung on Sky Beader's Secret. B&W Tahitian studs from Komoka. The "white" pearl matches my blue akoyas, and the "black" pearl looks almost purple.

                After I was done stringing, I noticed I accidentally double knotted between a couple pearls. It's not noticible to anyone else, but my eye goes right to it every time. Of course, it was 1/2 of the way through, and I didn't notice until I was done. I am not restringing them again for awhile. I'm willing to unpick 2 knots, but not 1/2 of a necklace. Easier to start from scratch.

                  Looks great, BW! I love how the TNT & blue Akoya necklaces look with the Amethyst necklace! I love how the Amethyst is set...so unique!
                  I wouldn't undo half a necklace to fix 2 knots either. I think it looks wonderful & would never notice the 2 double knots!

                      • What a great rope you have made from your three strands ! Wonderful job combining the pearls ! I've got a couple of strands that I might try combining ! I'm inspired !
                        BWeaves - wonderful layers.. I do love Amethyst




                        I've tried to make this smaller but can't seem to do it..not sure what's happened ... though my keyboard has been wonky since the glass of wine spilled on it ...

                        • YAY!
                          Ladies, thank you, THANK YOU for your kind words! They mean a world to me - still pretty new to pearls and VERY new to stringing I enjoy it so much, I am eyeing my freshly restrung necklaces to do it again just for fun and practice

                          BW, I LOVE your choices! The Amethyst is to die for! But my heart belongs to tourmalines, they are so colorful! Like rock candies. And that Tartan! Time to dig out mine. What fun! Jewish girls in Scottish garments

                            Celtic music and Klezmer music sound so much alike that I'm sure everyone is related if we go back far enough. There was a Celtic band back in the 1980s that did a tour of America playing Cèilidhs and Bar Mitzvahs.

                            • I tried posting earlier, but couldn’t get a reply window to come up...

                              BWeaves- beautiful jewel tone layers! Love that artsy amethyst setting.

                              Masik- what a great eye for combining your strands. It looks so colorful.

                              • Whelp, I'm restringing my blue akoya rope AGAIN, because that double knot was bugging me. I get faster and more even every time I restring. I think I need to order Beader's Secret in Sky in bulk.
