    Any earrings? Do you wear pearl studs with your strands?

    If I tell you the price of the bird ring , you will be mad .
    Ready?

    16 dollars equivalent .

    The bird ring is sterling silver, I bought it from a night market in Thailand. It had a faux pearl on it, so took it off by using the hairdryer blowing it for 1 minute, and glue a 9mm round Tahitian on. The glue is bought from 2 dollars shop Daiso(AB glue, two tubes set)

    I am new here, thought it would be too humble to post some stuff I bought from market , so I didn’t post the ring with those gold and diamond top designer pieces on #77.
    If you like sterling silver settings and some simple gold settings, I have tons of them. usually bought from craft market / night market.
    I am an addict to craft market/night market , Thailand , Indonesia, India, China( Taiwan), Japan, Myanmar , etc...
    craftmakret /night market is like meditation , I can spend hours very slowly going through one booth after another , and spend only 100. Saved a lot on going to see psychaitrist or mindful awareness trainer . And cured.

    I missed this post before. Thanks for posting these photos of the rectangles-- they are charming.

    Who wouldn't love a stroll through a night/craft market? Sounds like lots of fun!

    Unfortunately , craft markets is a sunset industry now, many people going online shopping.

    Some sterling silver settings from no-name but really creative people.

    This one is from Thailand as well.
    the original one was with a garnet. Same thing , took the garnet out , put Tahitian in.
    Paired with a bracelet , same colour Tahitian, 13.4mm, the pendant is 14.5mm.
    Can’t tell what animal it is , look like an angry lion.

    I've known other people who buy commercial jewelry and then have it reset with better pearls. I can think of Ann King orchid earrings, for example.
    Your lion pendant is fantastic, as is the bird ring. Do you buy the loose pearls at night market, as well?

    The pearls I reset were from other pendants. . I am very picky on pearl quality. Didn’t find pearls on markets.

    Like this flower ring very much. Very big and heavy.
    The grey Tahitian pearl is 13.2mm, going well with grey strand.
