    Thank you Pattye and BWeaves. It is pretty and smallish, I see what I want to do with the pearls once the birdcage tasselcaps arrive.

    Some more photos of my new ombre waverope with silver tahitians from Cees and Alexander Collins small blue tahitians from Pearlescence. I love this combination. It enhances the blue as well as the silver pearls. Lately I have been making a lot of ropes. I used beaders secret in teal on this project.

    The blue tahitians studs, also from Pearlescence are maybe a smidge to big for this rope but...

    I have been so busy lately that I grab pearls on rutine. I have a few go to combinations that I usually end up with if I am in a hurry. And since it's genarally for work pearls, non of my ropes. The last couple of days I wore my copper green tahitian earrings from Cees with my golden south sea frog pendant from Pearlsociety and my grandmothers gold chain.

    Today I am wearing my rikitea strand from Cees with my mismatched green tahitian studs from Oceansrhyme. Usually I wear that strand with my green and pink tahitian studs from Pearlescence.

    My big multicolored tahitians strand from Wendy and my white south sea huggies, the pearls are from Pearlsociety is another favoriter. Somehow this strand looks best with the white south sea pearls.

    The rainbow strand From Pearlescence with either the purple edison huggies or the deep golden south sea studs from Pearlescence or the copper green tahitian earrings from Cees is always a pleasure to wear.

    Those deep golden south sea studs from Pearlescence are those I most often choose with my golden strands. I love those studs. Big chunky circled golden south sea strand from Pearlescence.

    Those are my current go to combinations. I am sure that I have forgot ten several other ones. Also it looks like these circled tahitian earrings wanted to be seen as well. They were a ring that broke ones, I have only worn them ones so they shouldn't really be in this post...

    My birdcage, wirhout bird, tasselcap from Beadsfeeder finally arrived and minitassel is no more. I am rather pleased with how the new tassel turned out. And I had enough pearls left over from the vintage triple strand of golden akoyas to make a 30 inches long waverope that the tassel can hang from. The tasselcap is an enhancer so I can put it on other strands or chains as well. I deliberatly made the center of the rope one of the smaller parts of the wave so that the tassel is centered. I haven't intended for the rope to be worn on it's own. Anyway, new tassel.

    Now I want a tahitian tassel but that's not likely since tahitian pearls don't come in 3 or 4 mm sizes. I don't want an 8 inch tassel... I might be able to make a akoya tassel with tahitian ends. I have this strand and some smaller drop tahitians on the other strand.

    Now I have to restring the drop tahitian strand that I took pearls from or maybe make dinner first. Not-husband days that I completely loose track of time when I fiddle with my pearls and he isn't wrong.

    Charlotta, if you want an all Tahitian tassel, you could use Tahitian keshi for the long rows.

    Thank you Pattye, 86Corvettegirl and Jeg. Great idea Jeg. I will try that. I just have to buy another tahitian keshistrand and another tasselcap, that will take a while to get. I would love a tahitian keshi tassel. I don't really want to take the keshis from my keshi and baroque tahitian rope, I really like that one.

    After making all those tassels I got an urge to make my ombre circled golden to white south sea strand and bracelet into an endless rope. I love endless ropes, I can shift the pearls whichever way I want to. And I usually wear the strand with the bracelet attatched anyway. It turned out great. The pearls in this one is really marvellous. I am so lucky that Wendy found me all those circled pearls.

    While checking my pearls for frayed treads I realised that I have made quite a lot of ropes lately. Many single strands have ended up being ropes. First my ombre circled south sea rope and my golden south sea ripple rope.

    Then the tahitian ones, ombre tahitian rope, blue and silver ombre waverope and my keshi and baroque tahitian rope. I recently had a drop tahitian rope as well but I shortened that.

    And then there are the mixed pearls rope. I have many of those. First my blue akoya and greenish golden south sea rope, blue akoya and white south sea rope, green akoya and south sea rope and my iridescence rope made out of freshwater pearls.

    That's a lot of ropes. I post them individually soon. These ones are the ones I really love, some I have mady earlier may have been remade.

    The deep golden south sea and vintage akoya waverope and strand. The deep golden south sea strand I used for these two are from Cees, the akoyas are from a double strand of vintage akoyas and the deep golden south sea studs from Oceanscove.

    My golden south sea and vintage waverope is another favorite, the vintage akoyas are from a well loved strand. The owner clearly loved this strand and used it a lot. There were damaged pearls on one side of the strand and on the back, from perfume or hairspray perhaps. I had to leave out some pearls. The golden south sea pearls are from Kongspearl.

    Then I have a really long rope of blue akoyas and greenish south sea pearls. The akoyas are from Pearlescence, I bought four strands, and the greenish south sea pearls are from Kongspearl. These look best with the green south sea studs that I bought from Pearlescence.

    The blue akoyas and white south sea rope is made out of the same blue akoyas as the blue and green strand, smaller white south sea pearls from Pearlescence and bigger baroque ones. They look great with these very blue baroque south sea studs and pendant from Pearlescence.

    The green akoya and white south sea rope I treasure. Such lovely akoyas. The akoyas are from Pearlescence as are the smaller white south sea pearls, and then there is also some baroque white south sea pearls. Usually I wear this one with my 9,4mm white south sea studs, but I cannot find the photo. But it's equally lovely with my vintage akoya tassel.

    My newly made silver and blue tahitian ombre waverope is such a useful favorite. The blue tiny Collins tahitians are from Pearlescence and the silver tahitians from Cees. Usually I wear this with my green and pink tahitian studs from Pearlescence.

    My tahitian keshi and baroque tahitian rope is gorgeous. The keshis are from Druzydesign and the baroque tahitians from Cees. With my bigger green and pink studs from Pearlescence. These studs I often wear on their own if it's really hot.

    Finally, if I haven't forgotten any, my south sea and tahitian rope. This one has lots of pearls from my leftover box. Some are from Cees and some from Wendy. I think that there are some from Kongspearl as well. I made a matching bracelet.

    There are three parts of the rope with bigger pearls, as focal pearls. Since it's endless I can shift it depending of my mood or earrings or whatever.

    HUM! Tassels, Tassels, what to name the tassels. It's hard when I'm getting distracted by all the ombre's and beautiful strands.

    OK, so 3 tassels. My first thought was Bambi, Thumper, and Trixie* , but I wanted to pick something classier, so . . .

    Audrey, Jayne, and Marilyn.

    AND classier . . .

    Alexandra, Victoria, and Mary.


    * I was thinking bunnies ** , not strippers. Anyway, the tassels are definitely girly girls.

    ** Actual animal bunnies, not not Playboy bunnies.
