  • Tea Party Number 2

    I finally got around to stringing these strands of tiny purply pink pearls I got in Hong Kong. Wearing as a pearl chain with my Tahitian pendant from Hawaii.

      • Pearls and confetti sugar? Be still my heart. I love your tea setup. That freshwater necklace is amazing.

        It was 85F today, and linen and pearls.

        Ripples from Kojima. Pistachio akoyas from PP. And multi pearl tin-cup from Kojima.

        SoC rose gold ring from Douglas and PP on my left hand. It's out of focus because my camera decided it liked my new sandals better. Rose gold patent leather Birkenstocks. They really look like rose gold. Very shiny. And they match the SoC ring!

          • Thanks Pearl Dreams, Charlotta and Jeg.
            Charlotta, yes they are GSS.
            Jeg, I love teas and your array looks beautiful. I looked at your clothes first, then the pearls as I love the ruffles. Do love the tiny pink pearls. ? Can I ask, what are feather pearls? Iʻm still learning.
            Bweaves, I love the ripples.
            Amazing photos and sharing by everyone. Thanks!

            • Thank you, BWeaves and Mtummybear!

              BWeaves, you look so light and summery! Ahhhh...

              Mtummybear, the name is coined because of the look of feathers. Here are the two strands together.

                  • Jeg I knew the tea party food would not disappoint! Fantastic; your guests were very lucky!

                    BWeaves, that’s a graceful and elegant spring look, and that linen is perfect with your lovely pearls ... the rose gold sandals are just right!

                    • I'm curious about feather pearls, but I haven't seen any in person yet. Texture in pearls is very hit or miss with me. It took awhile for me to find the right keshi that I liked. But JEG's and BN's are gorgeous. You both have a great eye for pearls.

                      • Thats a real teaparty Jeg. Everything looks wonderful. The tiny strand turned out great, very pretty.
                        Bweaves, the ripples really goes well with your pistaccios.

                        • Thanks, Cathy, BWeaves and Charlotta! BWeaves, I tend to prefer non wrinkly pearls for myself, but I love these two Kojima strands. I think because the colors are so different from regular pearls. They glisten with metallic colors of gold, silver, bronze, copper. Very wearable.

                          • Thanks JEG. It took me a long time to warm up to ripples and wrinkled pearls, too. Each pearl is unique, so it just takes the right ones to set my heart beating.

                            Comment


                            • I generally prefer smooth pearls, myself, but the ripple pearls wearing ladies of PG are changing my mind. I do love the colors of ripples & will have a strand myself, once I find the right one.

                              Today, because of the rain, I'm taking care of business from home. I'm wearing my green Tahitian necklace (green is so hard for me to capture in pics) paired with one of my vintage Jadite enhancers & the Heather Benjamin beetle wing carved Abalone talon earrings.

                              • 86C, that's a gorgeous look. Is the jade a dragon eating the pearl sun or moon?

                                87F here today. Blue linen, blue pearls, and blue suede shoes (OK, blue suede Birkenstocks).
