  • One Tahitian into a necklace

    Hey guys,

    We are having a multi-day winter storm here, the sky has been gray for days. Somehow this makes me want to post a colorful pearl I received in the weekend and the necklace I made out of it last night.

    Here is a pearl from druzy:

    I cut two old CFW necklaces on which the pearls came from one strand to make the new one. I recycled a clasp 'cause my findings are all locked up. But this time I used colored thread instead of white.

        What a great way to feature your amazing rainbow Tahitian, StarryPearl! The softly colored thread is a great touch, too, excellent knotting!

            Thank you, Cathy! I like how it turned out, too. The pearl is pretty indeed, I love the color and I like its size. The original plan was to make it float and glide on a chain necklace, but the package of my findings was delayed, so I made it into this style last night. The findings arrived today!

              Thank you, Pattye! I like that you call it "rainbow" Tahitian, 'cause I call it that, too! I feel honored that my first time knotting is approved by YOU. Thank you for making my knotting easy and fun! You might have noticed the old necklace was stretched because that one I used silk. Before restringing, I thought I would get a 22 inches necklace. I was surprised it ended up even shorter than the old necklace though it has 6 more pearls.

                  You have done a beautiful knotting job on this strand and that tahitian is gorgeous. I have ended up with shorter strands than I would have thought whilst restringing as well, not so much now that I use Pattyes serafil tread. Somehow my knots don't add that much to the lenght that I would have thought.

                    What a lovely necklace, such a beautiful Tahitian pearl ( I LOVE the rainbows!) and the freshies are really nice as well! And your knotting looks perfect, the sky blue thread is fantastic in there!
