    Thank you Pattye!
    I think I'll use all the pearls (both strands) to make a long necklace. But I think I'll buy another strand from the same vendor as soon as I can to make a matching bracelet and earrings.

    Coupon code: PP10951

    Pearls As One is available in Italian from today.
    Thank you very much Jeremy for the coupon, but I already passed the Pearl as One exam (I also received the certificate a few weeks ago).
    I think my boyfriend (he is a goldsmith) may be interested in the course too, so may he use this code instead of me?
    I am glad to know that it's now available in italian too!

    Hello everybody, how are you? I've got some news about my collection!
    I've stringed the two akoya strands I showed you some months ago to make an alternated necklace 70cm long:

    I've also stringed the circle tahitians into a single necklace 85cm long. For the moment I added a simple clasp (no precious metal), but I will upgrade it to an 18k yellow gold as soon as I can.

    My last addition to the collection is a pendant I made just yesterday using a freshwater fireball pearl I received as a gift from a vendor in Florence. I used a setting in 18k yellow gold with a genuine diamond. I love this pearl, it's so shining and has a lot of colors, unfortunately you can't see them well in the pictures.

    Lovely collection. An alternating small-larger pearl pattern always looks so elegant.

    Lovely collection, Alyend!

    Are your earrings articulated/free moving, or are they soldered together so they don't move? Either way, they're beautiful!

    They are articulated, so the diamonds can sparkle. Here's a video I made:

    Another nice addition to my collection! I've just purchased from Kongs Pearl a new strand of 7-8mm baroque blue akoyas, with a pair of matching (but larger, avout 9-10mm) half drilled pearls to make earrings. As always, it's not easy to make photos and show their beautiful blue tone. Sorry for the bad pictures, I'll try to do something better as soon as I can.
    I particularly like the two pearls for the earrings, the blue is deeper:

    Now I have to find some mountings for the earrings and a nice clasp for the necklace, I think I'll choose white gold.
    I already had a blue akoya necklace (page 1 of this post), but the blue is not so evident. So, now that I have a new one, I've decided to give it to my mum for her birthday in september, she likes it very much.
