  • Thanks, Charlotta, 86C, and SydK!

    86C, if you go house hunting in a stack of pearls, they might try to sell you a mansion! Have you thought about plastic pop beads?!

    Thanks, SydK, I have been having fun with the dark T’s. You have reminded me I need to get that Seaglass necklace out, though...

        • Lovely, jeg and SydK! What a wonderful contrast, too.
          What building is in the background there, SydK? I love its grace.
          Wish I could have all delightfully mixed long earrings!

            • Nice akoyas 86Corvettegirl. Hope the house hunting went well.
              SydK, those silver tahitians are gorgeous.
              Jeg, that mixed strand is stunning.

              • Charlotta, we did find one he really liked but it went under contract before we could put a bid in. House went under contract the day it went on the market. So we will keep looking.

                • Lol, the contrast between my “schlepping on the school run” pearls and Jeg’s perfectly paired dress and jewellery combo in the next post is hilarious. Just goes to show, pearls are always appropriate!

                  • Ha! Pearls go with everything SydK. And I would never have known you were schlepping it had you not outed yourself!

                    LisaC. hope you are enjoying that new keshi strand of yours’!!

                    Thanks 86C and Charlotta! The strand has a fun combination of colors. I’ve been surprised at how many things it works with- clothes and pearls.

                          Jeg those Muller strands are gorgeous.

                          • Oh wow, the photos are coming so fast. I love them all. I can never pick a favorite.

                            All the blues. The Swan (from Pacific Pearls), and all my blue akoya strands (from PP and POJ). I positioned all the orbit clasps to make a design statement. Dyed blue drops with topaz hoops from Kojima.

                            Dyed freshwater drops drilled sideways. These were bead store pearls, and I just love the way they looked when they were temporarily strung, so I designed the necklace around that. They are much prettier in real life. For some reason the dyed surface dulls out in photos.

                            My best pearls. My first akoya rope (the small pearls). My natural white Hanadama rope from PP. My birthday akoyas from Mom (the choker). It's over 60 years old and looks fantastic. White gold Mikimoto huggie earrings.

                            I'm not sure these two necklaces really go together, but I was in the mood for more of my best pearls. Ombre' tin-cup from Kojima. All-Josh 2019 Harvest strand from Kamoka. Summer Rainbow and Winter Snowman drop earrings. Now that I look at the photo, and think the two necklaces look fine together.

                            I had the tiniest bit of buyer's remorse after I bought the ombre' tin-cup because I've bought so many pearls this year. But I'm absolutely in love with it.

                            • Syd - If you're going to Schlep ... Schlep with pearls ! Go Girl !

                              jeg - you have so many gorgeous pieces but that Kojima rope is so colourful, so beautiful ! It's one of my favourites - and those AM ropes... gorgeous !

                              BW - Take that tiny bit of buyers remorse and put it in a little box and lock it up ! That is a great strand - its gorgeous and so unique! It looks marvellous with that Tahitian strand ! And that Hanadama rope is really a show stopper ... it just glows !

                              • Bweaves, you look gorgeous. So many amazing pearls. Don't feel bad about buying that amazing tincup, if you have sent it back you would probably had regretted it and never found one like it again.
