    I got some better photos of my greenish south sea strand and bracelet.

    I can use the champagne studs with the greenish strand but they don't look as good together as the green ones. It's also pretty obvious that the strand has a lot of green pearls in it when ones see them next to the champagne ones.

    Some of the pearls are quite damaged, but they look great on. I think that some lady loved these pearls and wore them a lot. With perfume or hairspray. Some of the bigger pearls are damaged near the drillholes, but just on one side and the longer strand have damaged pearls near the clasp. It's still a beautiful necklace.

    The clasp looks beautiful together with my deep golden 8mm south sea from Cees...so I cut the double strand apart, but since it's a double strand clasp with two loops on each side of the clasp it didn't look good. Bummer. So I reknotted the golden strand and today the akoyas. Maybe I try to modify the clasp and move the rings. Might ask Laguna if she can fix it when she is finished with the new clasp she is making me. I don't know how old the clasp is though. It looks older than the double strand. This is the back side of the clasp.

    Gemandpearllovers blue, grey and white tahitian and akoya strands got some ideas in my head. Maybe I could combine my drop tahitians and my blue akoyas? Thanks for the inspiration Gemandpearllover. This is the drop tahitians with some smaller blue akoyas. I didn't bring my new Pearlescence akoyas with me to the summer cabin. Have to look at them together tonight.

    Great job taking things apart and putting them back together. Everything is so beautiful. I can't wear the green shades but it's such an interesting colour !! And the clasps are great ! The nice thing about the double is that even though you say there are flaws..you don't tend to see them when there are two strands moving around.

    Thank you Katbran, you are right. One doesn't notice the flaws on the double strand when worn.

    This weekend I only brought tahitians to the summer cabin. And not all off them, only brought the ombre tahitian rope from Cees, my Rikiteas from Cees, my blue tahitian strand from Pearlescence and my tahitian drop tincup with pearls from Wen Pearls. I also brought my pink and green tahitian studs, blue tahitian studs and pink and green tahitian studs from Pearlescence and my mismatched tahitian studs from Oceanscove.
