    Playing with my pearls again while the light is good. The colors I see in the photos I also frequently see in real life to. Not in sunshine, but I rarely look in a mirror or at my pearls in sunshine anyway. Usually not sunshine in sweden that much anyway even though this week has been nice with warmer sunny days but also very cold night with some nightfrost. So mittens in the mornings when I drive to work and sunglasses when I drive home. I brought some pearls with me to the summer cabin where the lighting is particularly good. Today I used my favorite tahitian tincup with smaller tahitian dropshaped pearls. I got the pearls from Wen Pearls last summer.

    Then I just had to take pictures of my new blue tahitian strand from Pearlescence. It's so gorgeous. The studs are from Pearlescence to.

    Then I tried to combined them with my peacock studs, also from Pearlescence. The colors are really different.

    The studs are notoriously difficult to photograph. They shift colors constantly in real life.

    Then I combined the blue tahitians with my white south sea strand from Cees. I love this strand. Beautiful orient.

    The studs and the strand look great together.

    The blue tahitian studs are so colorful. Couldn't believe my eyes the first time I saw them. Name:  _20190419_195750.jpg

    During my photo time with the pearls not-husband barbequed the meat and kitten glared at him through the door made of small pieces of wood not-husband built so that kitten cannot escape and get hurt and we still get some fresh air. So I continued with the tahitians I bought from Cees. First the baroque tahitians that I combined with some golden south seas, the rest of the tahitian rope I combined with white south seas and I think that I made 2 charms as well.

    My favorite strand ever, the Rikiteas from Cees. These I photograph all the time, but I use them all the time to. So many colors. Some of the studs I use with it, but any studs go with this strand.

    Glorious mismatched tahitian studs from Oceanscove. These are so shiny, also cannot find a single fault on these. Just perfect. The size is really good to, 8.4mm.

    Kitten is fast asleep next to me now after a long day of sitting in the car for more than an hour and then she had to explore the summer cabin for treats or mice or whatever cats looks for. I continued to play with some of my golden south seas. First my deep golden south sea strand from Cees with matching studs from Oceanscove. The strand is 8-9mm and the studs 8mm.

    These 2 strands are so interesting, so many different colors and colorshifting. Green and bluish overtones. They are so alike yet so different in shape.

    Well, I was going to comment on the Tahitians being gorgeous, and then I kept scrolling down and they're all gorgeous. I'd love a SS necklace like yours. I still haven't seen "the one" for me yet.

    Thank you Pattye and Bweaves. The summer cabin is sort of a lightbox. The walled outdoor room has a see-through roof that allows lots of diffused light. So I always brings pearls to photo. You will find the right goldens for you Bweaves, but sometimes it takes time. The lighter ones looks better with my skintone, they have a cooler tone to. But since the deep goldens are on the smaller side it works. If I buy another one I think that I would choose a medium golden strand, like the pearl on the frog pendant.

    Thank you CathyKeshi and Happy Huka. It was my pleasure, when I first started to try to photograph my pearls it all looked terrible. Then I tried in this room, I hadn't tried before because it reads dark, since it faces north and the sun don't shine in ever (mountains and trees and such block the sun). The see-through roof is magical, but the lighting is pretty good for pearls in the rest of the house as well.

    Gorgeous collection Charlotta! I specially love your blues and rikiteas necklaces! I just purchased a pair of blues from Cees to make into earrings and anxiously awaiting its arrival.
