    So, here I am wearing the Eastern Trade Winds South Sea keshi pearls at the ruckus. Thank you lilliefuzzysocks for the images. In addition, I have on my two white Tahitian strands worn as a rope from Pearl Paradise, my Sea of Cortez mabe pendant and earrings designed by Soren at T Lee in Minneapolis, and my Kasumi pearl bracelet from Sarah at Kojima Pearls. I had just purchased a couple of books from Renee Newman.

    Today I wore my South Sea keshi necklace with only the inner white strand. Originally, the white strand was several inches longer than the grey strand, so I asked my designer, Catherine at Stephen Vincent Design in Minneapolis, to remove the smallest pearls. She suggested turning them into earrings, and I love, love, love her design. The earrings were not ready in time for the ruckus, so here are pictures of them now. The best part is, the pearls are small enough that the resulting earring is light enough for me, since I hate heavy earrings. I love the pearl arrangement and the curve that she put into the gold wire.

    Those earrings are such a great design! I just love them!

    Red can you tell us more about the findings for your keshi necklaces? I haven't been able to find gold spring rings like that anywhere, only silver.

    Battah - My jeweler had paper catalogs of Italian findings. I snapped a couple of photos for my own reference back in June, but I will check who exactly they are the next time I drop into the jewelry store.
