    Default Do you style your pearls with accesories?

    Curious if you also style your pearls with accessories? I gave my mother a gift of a silk Hermes scarf a few years back and I twisted it and wrapped around it few strands of commercial freshwater pearls in similar colors (added gift). We talked about it recently and it got me thinking about you ladies here:

    Oops neither pic is my mother btw. This was a few years ago I gave her the scarf & pearls, I wrapped not as a fashion statement but it was just to save on the postage, I saw this images and it reminded me LoL.

    I don't style my pearls with accessories but I don't get dressed up that much. So, while I wear some kind of pearls almost daily, it's usually on the simple side.

    I was thinking about making a purse and using a cheaper strand I no longer wear as the strap but I was too lazy so that probably doesn't count.

    However, if you are ever up for adoption do let me know as I would definitely make an exception if I was gifted an Hermes scarf!

    Nope, my pearls usually are my accessories. But now I'm tempted to do a torsade with a some of my kumihimo braids.

    I've also thought a pearl brooch would be neat on a sweater or purse. A pearly hair ornament would be nice too.

    That would be gorgeous!!! I've only been doing kumihimo with beads because I can't think of what I'd use fiber braids for, but this is a fab idea.

    I restrung some cheap cheapies as a long strand and wore it as a belt today. Fun and far enough from anyone's eye for them to see just how cheap these pearls are.

    I love the pearls intertwined with the scarf.

    I was about to say no, I hadn't ... till I remembered my white shrug sweater. Embroidered on the shoulder, using white silk ribbons and some of Hisano's tiny freshwater pearls. Seen at a couple of ruckus parties I have more plans, but technical difficulties remain unresolved.

    I wish I was that creative to do things like the scarf and pearls, but I'm not. Plus, being in central Texas, I don't get to wear many scarves. The most I do is layering pearls, adding broaches to necklaces, and connecting strands to each other. If my cell phone allowed for hanging accessories, I would definitely string some freshies from it. I never understood why the US won't allow dangling things from their cell phones the way Japan does.

    My mom said something similar. RE the pearl necklaces she thinks the cosmetic and perfumes, coupled with Southern heat, are too much trouble at times. The Scarfs she will use in Fall/Winter. I can't say she wears them together but in the past my Grandmother would wear silk scarfs and plastic beading in a similar manner.

    I remembered a post about someone trying a pearl brooch at a style accessory. I came across this image of a Friedrich Becker Pearl Brooch and thought of this thread:

    I just like the design element to this piece.
