  • Oh, Jeg. your blues are gorgeous! They're so blue & lustrous! I love your top, too! And your GSS look spectacular!! I really want a mixed G & WSS rope!! I just love the colors of yours!!

    Frost Me, I love the colors & luster of your bracelet! It looks beautiful on you!

    Bailey, Love your T's!! They look gorgeous on you & look beautiful with the large baroque strand, too! 8-10mm is a very versatile size & can work very well with larger size strands for layering.

    • Thank you BWeaves, Charlotta, Lilpearl and 86C!

      Pretty, soft, summery colors in your bracelets, Frost Me!

      Bailey, I really like the 8-10mm size. Very wearable. Looks great on its own and also lends well to layering.

      More goldens and blues... A Kojima mixed strand of SS and Akoya/keshi. I put together the other strands- the shorter necklace with gemstones and Myanmar pearls/keshi, and the rope with Vietnamese Akoya.

      • Jeg, I love the GSS & Blue Akoya combos!!! They may be my favorites! Your Kojima rope is splendid! I wonder if Sara will ever make another one. The blues & goldens go so well together. These have made my day!!

        • Thanks 86C! They are sunny happy colors. I’m not typically a blue pearl person, but I sure seem to be wearing them a lot this summer. When you are lifted from Ban Island, you can always make a request. I know others who have had one, or some rendition of it, custom made. In the meantime, enjoy those mango margaritas!

          • 86Corvette- I'm pleased that you are recovering well. Hands are so difficult as there is so little tissue and every movement pulls. My husband John is very fair and spent every Australian summer in sailing competitions. This was way before sunscreen and he has spent the last 30 years having cancers removed. He's got some impressive scars on his upper arms . Vigilance is the only way and you are very wise to keep up the screenings.

            Jeg - I want to thank you for the mention last week - I missed several days somehow and you post was in there ! Lets hope it travels better that the pearl earrings that wandered around the country before getting to you lol That GSS and Blue Akoya rope is so pretty ! The Gold and Blue make a wonderful colour combination. Personally I love the Blue Akoya - though the colour can be a bit tricky as they photo quite blue while in real life appearing more silver.

            Bailey - I love that 8-10 size. For a long time I was totally into large pearls - but the lustre on the smaller ones is so hard to beat. they look beautiful !

            Frostme - Love the bracelet !!

            • Haha, Katbran- I think the earrings saw more of the US than I’ve ever seen! So far, it doesn’t look like the pendant has made its way to the US yet. I am looking forward to seeing it! I agree about the blue Akoya. The color really pops when taking pics. I do love the pearls, but with my coloring, I tend more towards silvers than blues.

              • You did a great job with those two strands Jeg, that little gemstone and golden south sea strand is gorgeous.

                • Thanks so much, Charlotta!

                  Chosen keshi rope from Kojima, with a keshi necklace and freshwater earrings I made.

                  • Jeg, I love that you show a photo wearing the pearls and then a close up. The yellow and blue combinations do look super-summery and the keshi are scruptious!

                    Comment


                    • JEG: Great combinations again. I also love the clothing shots and then the close ups. I seem to be channeling you today. I'm also in gold and blue ropes of pearls. I had to layer them on today. I needed to be dripping in pearls. Photos later.

                      • Pretty keshis jeg, you always manage to coordinate your pearls and outfits to perfection.

                        • Yesterday, ALL the BLUES. Blue akoya pearls from PP and POJ. Deep blue with lots of pink. The choker is pale blue but has beautiful soap bubble colors in real life. All the pearls look grey in the photos, when they are definitely blue and pink in person.

                          Today I wanted to be dripping in pearls. All from Kojima. Everything Bagel rope and Mixed Tin-cup rope. Greg Who hanging off a freshwater keshi tin-cup. Summer Rainbow and Winter Snowman drops on Mom's diamond hoops. These are all some of my most colorful pearls

                          • Great combinations Bweaves, you combine the pearls so well with your outfits.

                            • AND, ombre' tin-cup just arrived from Kojima. I wasn't sure about it in the box, but once I put it on, it matched Summer Rainbow and Winter Snowman earrings so well, that it was just perfect. Plus, I love the length, 26". It's very lightweight. Feels good in the heat.

                              The white linen is pure white, but it didn't photograph as white.

                              Mom's hoops have a very interesting catch on the back. You have to press the lever to release it so the hoop will open. Very secure.

                              • Wow, my eyes are dazzled by all the multicolour ropes and tin cups on this page!
                                Jeg, LOVE that keshi combo - the black in the kojima rope provides the perfect amount of contrast to all the light and airiness.
                                Bweaves, have admit that when I saw it on the Kojima site, I thought that the ombré was really nice but wondered if it was a bit on the exy side given the length and materials. But seeing it here, I get it now - it’s a knock-out! I’m sure it will be super versatile and and you will get a ton of wear out of it, too.
