  • Tell me about it! and Thank you, cats and kittens! That’s what my MiL used to say.

    I figure, I enjoy everybody else’s stuff I ought to contribute once in a while, even if it’s simple stuff. Like the cartoon dog with the cape - “Humble, yet lovable”.

        • Lovely!!! I'm wearing pearls, but not posting. I'm testing 1099 patches for the IRS changes to the forms, and it isn't going well. Work is stressing me out a bit.

            Jeg, I absolutely adore the colours in your rope. You also have another metallic ripple rope That I am so jealous of! I wish more like this would be available for sale from vendors!

            • Thanks so much Charlotta, BWeaves and CMN!

              BWeaves, I hope you get some work relief soon.

              CMN, I used two temp strands to make that rope. They were unusually long temp strands so I was able to make a long rope and bracelet. If you are interested in a metallic rope, your best bet would probably be to contact some of the vendors to see if they have a couple matching strands to make into a rope. I never thought about it, but I guess most of the metallics are made into, and sold as, short strands.

              Kojima keshi and beaded rope, with a necklace I made with pearls from Pearls By The Bay.

              • Beautiful beautiful pearls and outfits as always Jeg!
                Love those jade slices earrings, I have tried wire-wrapping again inspired by you so when the weather gets finally pearl-friendly (havent seen the sun whole week here!!!) will snap a few pictures with my finished Tahitian Love necklace ( Yes! the pearls from Druzy have arrived and they are perfect!).

                SydK, I am still waiting for my white Edisons to arrive but will definitely post when I get to making the necklace.

                • BWeaves - I understand that feeling of being stressed and not wearing jewellery ! I can't stand having something around my neck when I'm agitated ( fortunately a rare occurrence ). Hope work settles soon !

                  jeg- aren't the Riki pearls great ? The colours are so deep and varied ! And of course I love the necklace you made ... so cute !

                  • I'm afraid I'm the same way when anxious .. often ALL the jewelry comes OFF. But sometimes it's soothing, and it's certainly armor when facing a doctor who doesn't want to listen ... at least it is in my mind lol. Hang in there BWeaves!

                    Jeg, those new Rikiteas are stunning; such bright colors! And of course, one of my all time favorites, the Myanmars!!! You bring so much light and joy with your posts; we are so lucky to have you with us. I admit my very favorite this week is that luscious red paisley wooly jacket Hugs!

                    • Thank you eolian! I hope the wire wrapping is getting easier and you find a rhythm that works for you. I am hoping to get a few more of the gemstone slices so I can start working on gifts for the holidays.

                      Katbran, yes, I love the colors on the Rikitea strand, thank you!

                      CathyKeshi, what sweet and very generous compliments. I do have a lot of time to take pics these days... And I think of you every time I take the Myanmar strand out.

                      • Jeg, I've never seen this type of pearl brooch, and I love how you are wearing it in the photo - what a beautiful and creative piece! Kojima does make such lovely jewelry

                        • Thanks so much, SurfnSci! I can’t remember the exact story behind these brooches, but they are not made in house. There’s a woman who makes them, and Sarah has brought them back from her travels. She does have an eye for finding the unique. I’m attaching a pic I have posted before of a smaller brooch I wear on a wristband.
