    Thank you 86Corvettegirl. I love keshis to.
    Since I also ordered Beaders secret in sky, i restrung my baroque akoyas, from Wendy at Pearlescence, with it. They shift color in blue, green and pink. I think that they are about 7mm.

    Those are interesting pearls! I like the overtones.

    Thank you AndrewM, yes they are interesting. It's like they shift color. They are rather small so the colorshifting isn't as obvious when worn.

    Charlotta- I love that you are fearless- you just string and restring and glue and it all turns out marvelous!
    I love all of your creations and your creativity.

    Thank you 2thdktr, it is not so much that I am fearless, just that I can remake most things if I don't like it. If I want my greenish strand as they were I can remake them in about an hour or so. Maybe not with exactly the same pearl in the same place (could probably do this if I looked at my photos closely), but almost.

    Today I wore my Rikitea strand from Cees, my frog pendant from Pearlsociety and my mismatched tahitian studs from Oceanscove.

    I wear these a lot. BWeaves are right, they go with nothing and everything.

    Yay, my 32inch strand of baroque tahitians from Cees arrived today. They are beautiful and smaller just as I like them, 8-10mm. I haven't decided on what to do with them quite yet.

    Made a necklace out of half of the baroque tahitians and added 6 golden south sea pearls to make it a little different from my other strands. Its now about 19 inches long.

    Beautiful pearls. I was admiring that mismatched pair at Oceans Cove. Love the soft blue-greens. Very fine pairing, and they look great on you.

    Beautiful pearls, Charlotta!
    I am intrigued by this nice colour, alone on the stand, between cupper and tan, not common at all
