    Default My first multicolor Tahitian pearls

    Hello. I've been lurking for a few months but this is my first post. I'm brand new to pearls, having only purchased my very first pearls on Mother's Day, a FWP white necklace from PP. That was a lot more difficult than I had expected, and I ended up ordering everything from the most inexpensive FWP to Hanadama, only to end up keeping the FWP and saving the extra funds for something else later.

    That "something else" came about faster than expected and when I saw this on IG I was in love. This was so much more fun than the white necklace, much more of an emotional high Pearls are not perfect with blemishes, but luster is great and colors just make my heart sing.

    I'm reading the stringing instructions and gonna give it a try myself. Probably not on these at first, test it on something else to practice. Already ordered the supplier from a member here.

    It's super hard to get selfies of pearls and get accurate colors In reality colors are more muted while variations are more visible. I LOVE the single white pearl, that's probably my favorite part of this strand.

    Look forward to learning more and seeing more beautiful pearls everyone has! Only 2 necklaces so far and I'm totally hooked!

    Eek, why are my pictures so large and not right side up???

    I'm seeing your lovely neck shot right side up! Your pearls are wonderful! The large photos are perfect.

    I don't know why so many photos appear sideways. I would experiment to try to figure it out but I still use a flip phone, and upload photos from my computer.

    Babyblue welcome! Your tahitian pearls look beautiful and have fun stringing it! For me it was quite intimidating knotting my first strand (and it was tahitian too) but the final product is so rewarding!

    Tahitians are infinitely fascinating, as you're finding out! Your new strand is lovely with your coloring; congratulations on a great choice! Lots of mentors here to encourage you as you learn to string your own pearls.

    You got a winner! Those T's are gorgeous and look great on your neck.

    I always string each strand of pearls at least 3 times before I'm happy with it. Stringing is easy. It's getting the hang of the right tension for all the knots. Sometimes I'm too tight. Sometimes I'm too loose, or I screw up right at the end. Third time is usually the charm. But I enjoy stringing pearls, so I don't mind redoing a necklace 3 times in a row. If I strung every day, I'd get it right the first time, but it's usually a couple of years between each stringing session, so I forget my "feel" for the knot tension.

    I can't even post pictures from my phone, just from my laptop. Haven't figured that out yet.

    I think it would be so rewarding, plus I can get it exactly the way I want it. I want this to be JUST right you know?

    Thank you. Yes Tahitians in particular are just fascinating for me, such variations all created naturally! It's hard to pick just 1 strand because each one is so unique, I think multicolor was a good choice for me so I can experience the different flavors at once.

    I ordered the stringing kit from you and it's on its way. I haven't figured out the clasp yet though, everyone is recommending orbit clasp but I assume larger size ones?

    "Fish bites", LOL! Yes, colors definitely pop over the blemishes and more I look at them less I notice the imperfections. Figured no one will get in my face close enough to see them anyway

    I'm home with a young baby right now so this can be a relaxing activity for me while he naps. Or in the middle of the night, whichever it may be I got nothing but time.

    Seriously can't stop looking at it!

    Thank you everyone for sharing my excitement and offering encouragements. I don't have anyone in real life that understands my love for these things so it's nice to share it with people who knows

    If you want to upload from your smartphone you have to use the desktop version of Pearl Guide. That is all I know about that.

    As far as photos uploaded from your laptop...if you rotate the photos so that they appear upright on your computer, I'm not sure why they wouldn't upload to P-G in the same direction.
