    Welcome! Very nice collection and you're quite the pearl stringer! I like the 18k white gold floral clasp on the shorter white freshwater strand and the rose silver flower clasp.

    Thank you all for your kind messages!

    I've just found an idea for the two akoya strands (2mm and 5mm) I've not yet used: to combine them as an alternated necklace like this one from the dutch royal jewel collection (worn by Princess Irene in this picture):

    Do you think it could be a nice idea?

    Or you could mix them randomly for a more casual look.

    Hello!
    I've finally stringed the 2mm and 5mm akoyas! Here they are:

    I used all the 5mm pearls alternated with some (about half strand) of the 2mm akoyas. The necklace is now 70cm long, but for now I've added a simple sterling silver lobster clasp. I think I will change it with a nicer white gold clasp as sooner as I can.
    Just today I made another nice addition to my collection: two strands of tahitian circle pearls. I've found them at Kong's Pearls on Etsy. It's my first purchase from them, and I'm very happy with it. They are obviously circled and have a lot of imperfections, but I liked very much the colours, and they sold them at a reasonable price. I think I will combine the two strands together to make a long necklace for everyday wear. I will add to them a nice 18k yellow gold clasp I already have. I'll show you some pictures:

    Oh, the Tahitians are so interesting and full of character! I adore ringed pearls and all their colors! Will you make earrings also?
