    The tahitian rope is somewhate smoother...
    When I was taking photos of the sampler strand I saw that half of this was cooler toned and the other half warmer, but that the clasp wasn't in the middle of the two. I could rearrange it a bit and maybe make it endless so that I could twist it around for a new effect. Like a day and a night kind of necklace, or summer and winter. Or I could make two necklaces with one gold and one silver clasp that I could connect to one rope. Might be fun. The warmer part is a bit shorter I think so then I have to add some pearls to it from my leftover piles.

    The ever naughty kitten escaped last night and it took us an hour to catch her again. She was everwhere. On the roof off the house, climbed up on a small mountain top, under the house. Running everywhere generally. Now she tries to break out again. There are so many pretty birds outsider she says. She just want to play with them... Cannot let her out since we always travel between two houses. Also we lost 3 cats, that always was outside, some years ago all at the same time. We suspects foul play and don't want to loose this one.

    Happy Huka, she escaped again today. Somehow she got her little body through some tiny openings in the airing doors not-husband built. Took us a long time to catch her. She thought we were playing with her the little imp. Now not-husband has rebuilt the airing doors.

    Today I restrung my tiny 3-4mm lavender rose off-round freshwater pearls from Pearllunar. I used Pattyes Beaders secret in rose, I had to wait for my order off the smallest size since the drillholes are so small. I don't like the beading wire it was on. I prefer to knot between every pearl no matter how small. It feels more secure and I like the drape of knotted strands. I also restrung my big 11-15mm ripples this week, also on Beaders secret in rose.

    Me wearing this combination today. The ripples feels a bit big for me. Maybe I get use to them. It's not that they are to heavy, the are just huge.

    Thank you 86Corvettegirl. Kitten is a handful, thinking about getting her a friend. Now she plays with me and not-husband, she expects us to play like cats but I'm not getting on that roof.

    Changed the sampler strand again. I added another clasp, rearranged some pearls, removed the tiny round akoyas (to small for the clasp), added some pearls for lenght. Now it's one cooler strand and one warmer, like winter and summer, yet they connect to one rope again with almost the same layout.

    This is now even more versatile then before. I really do love multi functional jewelry (anything multifunctional really) and samplers. I have made an embroidery sampler and I am working on a quiltsampler as well. The quiltsampler is on hold. It's queensize and I cannot put it on a bed because of little miss kittens claws (the walls are to small or have windows in them) . Anyway a pearl sampler is more fun.

    Rearranged my baroque tahitian and white baroque south sea strand. The baroque tahitians are from Cees and the baroque white south seas are from Pearlescence. I wanted the same amount of south seas as tahitians. It got a bit longer so I made a bracelet that can be attached to the necklace and make it ropelenght. The inspiration for this strand is the black and white necklace Babynurse has, but hers is more beautiful. Lots of photos...

    Beautiful, Charlotta! The rearrangement of the warm/cool strand appeals to me—love that you can "mix & match" with it, and that you can use different enhancers with it. And the Tahitian/SS strand and bracelet are also gorgeous! Thanks for all the photos.

    I got two more 3-4 rose lavender freshwaters strands from Pearllunar. So I knotted them with Beaders secret in rose today. Took forever, all those small pearls. These strands are slightly more colorful than it's sibling strand.

    I found a better place for pearl photos at home. Got some better photos of my sampler strand.
