    Thank you all for looking and for all the kind words. And thanks to Ehret who makes such beautiful pearls accessible to all of us.

    I haven't cut the thread yet, because my findings and tools are all packed and locked up, like I mentioned. So here comes my question: Can G-S Hypo Cement survive 0°F? I just remember it's in that box and outdoors, and it was really cold here for a few days. I guess I won't fetch it until early summer at the earliest. Will it still be good? The tube was quite full last time I saw it.

      Me, too. I have a floating Akoya necklace like the bar necklace in the second photo, as well.

      The rainbow Tahitian is beautiful, and I like the necklace. I've never purchased from Ehret but often look through their listings.

        Starry Pearl, you might want to call the manufacturer of Hypo cement to ask that question. Here's a phone number from the box, 1-585-241-2370 Please let us know what you find out.

          StarryPearl I have a rainbow sister to your pearl from Druzy! I am another happy customer of theirs ( BTW they have a shop at Ebay and Etsy as well, I didnt know about the Etsy one until recently). Anyways, the pearl took a while to get to me and I was initially thinking of having it as a floating necklace but looking at your beautiful pairing with smaller pearls I have decided to put the rainbow on my tahitian keshi necklace and I love the result! I will take a picture tomorrow, thank you for the inspiration!

              StarryPearl - great job knotting ! I'm impressed , I knot rarely and always feel like I'm relearning as I go lol

              Your necklace is lovely and Druzy have always had some nice pearls and little short strands of stones .. which is great if you just want to do some earrings ... you don't have to buy a whole strand of emeralds !

                Thanks, Pattye. That's so kind of you! I will call today or tomorrow if too busy today, and post what they say.

                It's been bothering me whether I should buy a new tube with some other supplies for free shipping. Though just a few bucks, I try to avoid too many duplicates - already crowded enough.

                  Thanks, ennui, eolian pearls, Lilpearl, Katbran.

                  eolian pearls - you are welcome. I look forward to seeing your new necklace.

                  Katbran - yea that's very convenient if one does not want to spend too much or stock up too many gems, plus the gems look high quality, so saving troubles looking and identifying. For me that's no problem, as I have been a long time handcrafter and accumulated many stones over the years. Now that I am in love with sea pearls, I wish I don't accumulate too many sea pearls before I know, as pearls do not last well if just left there like my stones. I also get the "relearning" feel though I have just started, lol! I am about to receive more Tahitians which I want to make a rope out of. I guess there might be some difference, especially if I decide to do the endless style. So far I still want to stick to the with-clasp style and see how a rope goes.

                    Thanks again, Pattye. I just called. The customer service specialist was very nice to talk to. She said she believed it would freeze, but she could not guarantee whether the cement would still work once defrosted. She suggested trying on a sample if it still looked normal after defrosting. In her words, she "really can't say anything" for sure about it.

                        Oh my!! Look at that! We do have sister pearls, Eolian pearls! Your keshi did such a great job bringing out the center piece's beauty. Did you knot between the keshi pearls or simply string them? Maybe one day when I get tired with my freshwater chain I will change it to keshi, too. Thanks for YOUR inspiration this time! Congrats on your new beauuutiful necklace!

                          Your keshistrand with the rainbow tahitian is beautiful eolian pearls. I did make something similar with my akoya keshis recently and a big circled tahitian as a centerpiece. I also did forget to photograph it. It was those really small kind of akoya keshis that has to be strung on wire, very finickely.

                              Thank you guys! StarryPearl, I did knot the first 4 pearls from the clasp and then every now and then a knot...Actually the thread ( Pattey’s #30) I used was quite thick so even when I cut the original keshi necklace up the pearls did not fall but stayed in place. Definitely a sister necklace to yours! I am thinking yours is a sunrise rainbow and mine is the sunset one :-) Calling it “The Starry necklace” in any case now! Looking forward to seeing more creations from you! Tahitan rope sounds fantastic!!!

                              Charlotta we are creating again on the same wavelength! Would love to see your creation too! Those akoya keshis are very very tricky to work with!

                                Thank you, eolian pearls, for sharing the details. I love your idea of sunrise and sunset rainbows - if not sold individually, these two pearls might make a perfect match for earrings.
