    Default My 9.0-9.5 Silver Blue Baroque Akoya Strand from PP

    I did not want to hijack Moneymeister's thread on her blue akoyas so I started one of my own. These are my birthday present to myself because I have been wanting a strand of these for quite some time. I wanted a 20" strand & the only available ones were in the 9.0-9.5mm. I would have liked them to have a stronger blue orient but the luster is really incredible & I like the larger size. I'm having to learn the camera on my new phone so please forgive the pic. I'm having a tough time capturing the color because the camera seems to be washing the color out. I'll get the hang of it & post mod shots later. Anyway...this is my strand without the flash.

    It's beauutiful! Blue Akoyas are my favorite. I think they "glow" more than any other color on the neck.

    Thank you Parrot Lady & GemGeek. These do have a definite glow to them. I just love the luster...they look wet.

    Thank you, lilliefuzzysocks. I've also ordered 2 strands of white baroque Akoyas with silver blue Akoyas spaced throughout. One is 19" & the other is 21" of 7.5mm. I plan to nestle the baby blue Akoyas between the other 2 strands. I'm hoping it will look like I envision.

    They have a beautiful color and luster, and a good size to either wear on its own or layer. I look forward to seeing the triple you have planned.

    Thanks, KaySD. I hope to have the other necklaces in a couple of weeks. They're a custom order so it will take a few days.
