    First Up: I just had to sort a handful of little Fiji keshi into color ranges. It was nearly impossible, because their colors change with every movement; NO photos bring that to life. Sarah at Kojima then turned them into a wonderful Keshi necklace; one of my favorites.

    Group Shot, Fijis. Matching clasps fro mix, match and length adjustments. Please excuse the & pistachio/green sapphire Tahitian distractions on the right side lol. Workmanship on these done by our own Sarah at Oceans Cove. Attachment 64968

    Thank you ... anytime, 86 Corvetegirl, anytime LOL. I will say, I have yet to see any photo that truly captures the Fijis satin glow and color shifts. Also, apologies for the typos ... my only explanation is I was pearl drunk ...

    I knew I could get you to play along!!!! Love love love the pics btw
    No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

    I am working on a non fiji Keshi (thaitian pearl keshi) necklace. A certain smarty pants has called it the "Cornflake" necklace...when I asked why the reply was "If there are rice crispy pearls, why not cornflakes?"

    My center pearl I am undecided on...probably a round tahitian. I wish it could be a Fiji, but I tell myself I can always redo it later. Too many pearls not enough time.

    I'll add what I have with me now. These are tiny keshi I purchased at the last Ruckus with the help of some sweet pearl experts. I also purchased 6 loose pearls. One pearl, a beautifully colored blue pearl, was made into a ring by John (from an old setting I had which I realized I don't have a photo of, so I'll have to get one asap!) and the others had a simple gold bale put on them to make a dangling pearl necklace or bracelet.

    Wish I could remember who coined that "pearl drunk" phrase ... I'm blaming troublemaker Newberry

    Katbran, if the Fiji keshi question is for me, I picked them out a ruckus a couple years ago. Thanks! Aren't Amti's so lovely? Like mine, they have such a variety of colors across the surfaces, and an iridescent, satiny luster and depth of surface. Combined with the shifts in color, they are quietly hypnotic.

    I love this thread because I love seeing everyones pearls, and hearing how and when they acquired their beauties. I have a few strands bought during one of PP sales last year..

    Thank you Cathy. I would now love to have some Fiji pendants to dangle with the strands.
