    Today it's a little black dress with a handkerchief hem and my best white pearls. Natural White Hanadama rope and Hanadama earrings from PP. South Sea & freshwater long tin-cup from Kojima. Mom's akoya choker. Mom's akoya ring.

    The luster on these whites just glows.

    • 86C I love your ombre and layering.
      Jesskat, the moon and carved T looks great together.
      SydK, I love your pearl pendant. It goes well with that type of chain.

        ROFLMAO!! That's funny!

        Jeg, you look awesome in pearls & turquoise!! Great arm party you have going on!

        Today is the day! Donned a hat to keep sun off my face & my Fiji pearl necklace, T studs & my favorite T ring to get my stitches out! Now on to the steri strips. Doctor said the healing is great but wants me to be easy with the hand for the next few days. So glad to get the bandage off & stitches out!! I can now wear rings & bracelets!!!

        • Thanks, Pattye, jesskat, Bailey and 86C!

          Thanks, Bailey! One thing about those strands that have a range of color, almost anything will match!

          86C, yes, I have been having a lot of parties on my wrist, but I don’t often take pics of the wrist or hand. So glad your stitches are out and you’re doing so well! Love the pearls, too, BTW!

          • Ooh, love your ring, 86C, and your nails!!!

            • 86C: Your hand looks great! Great nails, gorgeous ring. Even the bandage is almost invisible with all the other beautiful parts of your hand.

              I seem to be in a light blue mood. Today I'm wearing a blue wool T-shirt but it look exactly like the linen dress I wore yesterday.

              Coin pearls. Keshi from Kojima. Mikimoto huggie earrings. I like the contrast of the flat coin pearls drilled longways to the flat keshi drilled short ways.

              • Very nice pearls everyone!!

                86C you are looking fashionable on your doctor’s visit and glad that you’re feeling better and you’re good to wear your jewels!! Your Fiji necklace and ring are fabulous!!

                • Love all the pearls.
                  Jeg, the little freshies are so cute, and the turquoise pieces are pure Summer.
                  Great news about your hand, 86C. As others have said, the ring is stunning and your nails look great. The muted Fiji pearls are very elegant.
                  Bweaves, I‘m not really into coin pearls in general, but I like your combo a lot. I’ve admired the keshi necklace on its previous outings - the proportions and spacing of the gold beads are very pleasing.
                  Little ringed Tahitians and tourmaline for me today.

                  Off-topic- this cardigan is the result of a dyeing mishap. I bought a salmon-pink cashmere in perfect condition secondhand only to discover that the colour was hideous on me; professional attempts to dye it dark red were successful on the wool but not the nylon stitching at the buttonholes and trim, which remained aggressively pink. I was annoyed at the time, but I thought it worked weirdly well with this dress

                  • SydK: Love your Tahitians with the gemstones.

                    As a hand weaver and spinner, I've often overdyed items that had beautiful color, but were too much. I've had some interesting results when one fiber didn't dye like the other fiber in the same piece of fabric, too. Your sweater works well with the pink button holes, though.

                    I never liked BIG pearls (in my previous life), so coin pearls were sort of a compromise. They had the big look without looking like gumballs. These coin pearls are particularly lustrous in real life, which is why I was drawn to them. Now, of course, Pearl Shrinkage Syndrome has hit me, and I can't believe how big some of my round pearls are. I now find my 8mm to look rather small, and I thought they were so big when I bought them.

                    • Pretty, BWeaves! I keep looking at different belly drilled keshi thinking I need (want) some, but I haven’t decided what type.

                      SydK, the whole color combination looks great together and the delicate necklace is especially sweet.

                      • Sydk, I absolutely love the ringed T necklace - so playful, and yes, it works well with the cardi!

                        • Silver Tahitians from Pearls By The Bay, vintage coral beads with a tiny Japanese Akoya from Kojima, and J. Hunter Fiji pearls from PP, made into a bracelet.

                          • I really like that silver tahitian rope Jeg.
                            86Corvettegirl, those fidjis are lovely. The colors in them goes with everything.
                            Nice combination BWeaves. I had to laugh when I read your comment on how 8 mm now looks small. That is so true. I use to think that my 7-7,5 mm akoyas were huge when I first got them. Now they are rather smallish. Before that I had only worn graduated akoyas, the biggest pearls was 8mm, in a graduated double strand, so two pearls. The other smaller. I measured them today. Mostly of the other akoyas are 7-7,2 mm at most (in my tassels). The biggest pearl I have today in a strand is 16,5mm. That's a big difference.
                            SydK, the tourmaline and circled tahitians are gorgeous. I have tried dyeing mixed fabric once. The synthetic material didn't dye at all. The fabric looked really wierd, with only the cotton dyed. You can remake the buttonholes if you want. Salmon color looks horrid on me as well, I would have tried dyeing as well.
