    Such beautiful photos of your wonderful collection, Charlotta. The rikiteas are truly TDF.

    Thank you SydK, yes the rikiteas are really my favorite strand. Not that I don't like the others, they are just special. Very versitile, goes with everything, the size is good, 8-11, beautiful colors and luster and good for everyday as well as more dressy occasions.

    Oooh! I, too, was going to comment after the first photo, then just kept scrolling. Gorgeous , gorgeous and yet more gorgeous! The Rickiteas have my heart—every time I see them, they take my breath away. Northern light is also great for diamonds.

    Thank you Cricketbug and Octavia's Mom. I agree,northern light is amazing, half the years. Haven't tried to photograph diamonds, probably the only one in the world who doesn't really like diamonds. Never has, always did prefer colors. I have some that came with the pearls or clasps, Nice but rather pale....and now I prefer pearls. The rikiteas are gloriously colorful. I can stare at them forever.

    Remade my peacock circled pearls (again). Previously a tincup with tourmaline, now a tincup without tourmaline, a bit shorter.

    Recently I also changed the clasps on my white south sea strand and my golden south sea strand from Cees and on my greenish south sea strand from Kongspearl. They had ballclasps before. Now I can link them if I want to.

    Oh, very attractive clasps and great to have linkable strands! Bet you'll wear the tin cup often.

    .... probably the only one in the world who doesn't really like diamonds.
    Well, that's me also, Charlotta, lol.

    Thank you Pattye. I think that the tincup will get more use now when it's a bit shorter, it was to long before. I also made the chain between the pearls shorter so I could put all 10 pearls in it. It's about choker lenght now.

    Everything is gorgeous and I'm sure you will get more use out of the tin cup ... sometimes longer strands can be awkward. I love your new clasps , very pretty !!

    Do I have something special! I just recieved my dreamstrand from Cees. Recently I asked him if he could find me an ombre tahitian strand, like the one Babynurse has. I wanted it rope lenght and with 9-10 mm (my favorite size for strands) pearls. And he did. They are round, beautiful luster and very little blemishes (had a hard time finding any blemishes) and the colors are so gorgeous. Its still a tempstrand (probably has it strung before evening though..) and about 34-35 inches before stringing. I think that I will use Beaders secret in navy since I like it so much with my multicolored Rikiteas.

    I'm still amazed by this incredible strand. Cees did a wonderful job. I feel incredibly spoilt (by myself but even so), especially since I bought the blue tahitians from Wendy not that long ago.
