    Thank you Cricketbug. They are really gorgeous and not so small as some of my other graduated akoyas. The smallest pearls are about 4mm and the biggest about 9mm.

    The akoya’s colour on #706 is stunning.

    The double Akoya strand with the amethyst clasp is perfection, Charlotta! Excellent stringing job, as usual! Your pearl collection is truly a delight!

    I love that black/white strand with the Tahitian drop. I may copy that, and hope we don't run into each other.

    Thank you Happy Huka, Pattye, ennui and Jesskat. That clasp is very pretty.
    ennui, copy on. I don't mind even if we should run in to each other (not likely since I'm very far away).

    Today I restrung/rearranged my greenish south seas. I like the layout of my grey and white baroque south sea strand, a necklace and bracelet with the same clasps so that I can wear it as a necklace and a bracelet or combine the two to make a rope. Perfect combination except for the fact that you have to buy two strands...with so many pearls to choose from that rarely happens for me at least. When I did buy my first greenish strand from Kongspearl it was supposed to be champagne...but it wasn't and I didn't mind. Then I bought the next strand, that looked even more champagne in the photos, because I wanted a champagne strand to...but it was equally greenish. It's still beautiful, but has allowed me to play around with the greenish south sea pearls. This is the latest version, and I think the final one, I did restring the strand as well since I wanted the pearls to face the same way. I have since given up on finding a champagne strand. I probably want a slightly darker golden strand than that. Maybe medium gold (with green overtones perhaps). New version.

    The studs are green south sea studs from Pearlescence. I did buy champagne studs to go with the strand...but they don't look good together. Luckily I had these green ones from Wendy.

    They look great with my funkias. Love funkias (but I usually cut of the flowers).

    The light turned perfect for tahitians. I always see these colors with my eyes, but the phonecamera is hopelessly flawed (smartphones? I think not). Today I wore only my 10,9mm peacock tahitian studs from Pearlescence. It was hot and we went out with the boat for the first time this year.

    But yesterday I did have more pearls on, not that I rememberd to photograph them on me... Pink and green 8,8mm tahitian studs from Pearlescence, my Rikiteas from Cees and my 9-10mm ombre tahitian rope from Cees. The Rikiteas and the rope looks great together, somehow they look like a really long rope. Even though one is ombre and the other one multicolor.

    So while the light was cooperative I took some more tahitian photos. My tahitian drop strand with pearls from PearlParadise and Wen Pearls. I used all the colorful ones.

    Such lovely eye candy Charlotta. I love every piece but your greenish/gold south sea pearls have really stolen my heart.
