    I am so glad that many ladies here like keshi.
    I am crazy about keshi.
    The keshi picture in front of the water was taken before I dipped into the swimming pool of my villa. The reflextion was from swimming pool and beyond that was the Indian ocean.
    Actually had brought a little necklace and took a photo too, but on the other side of the villa, on the bridge.
    Why there was no neckshot of the little Edison necklace? I think you now probably all guessed right, yes, it drooped into the ocean when I was holding it up to take a photo, the sun was very strong, no chance to see what's on the phone screen , and it is windy .... and then... there it went into the water , just like Rose's the Heart of the Ocean, but with a lot less 0s on the price tag.
    You can imagine how horrified I was, rushed into the water , one arm holding my phone up, the other arm streching deep in the water to reach the sand and trying to find the necklace. Luckily the water was very shallow, I saved it finally.
    Washed it ,dried it and put it back in the cloth bag, and never took it out again, haha. Poor little Edison necklace.

    LOL all the dairy references--- whipped cream, butter etc. I fixed the title-- maybe I ought to have left it "dairy"?

    I love the tricolor strand! Such beautiful colors and luster!

    In fact every one of your shots is beautiful.

    I hope you will wear the little Edison that you (thankfully!) rescued.

    Thanks for fixing my typo, Pearl Dream. Now I can get back to Keshi or some “greens” later , hehe.

    Bought this Keshi necklace last month. I love the drop-shape keshi centerpiece. Large drop shape keshi in such good colour and quality is not easy to find. All the minions are GSS , WSS, and Tahitian keshi, some round and some baroque, in many colours. It is a clever combination, like the garden in Spring. A simple GSS and Tahitian keshi ring to match the Keshi necklace.

    I'd love to see a closeup of the rectangular metal beads.
    The original rope was much longer, 130cm ish, so I asked people to restring it. Some sterling silver parts were taken from the original rope , and the rest of the Keshis were made into a shorter rope.

    Here are the photos of the rectangle part.

    Love the rectangular beads ! Is there a centre guide for the string to keep them centred ?

    The flower necklace is really really pretty ! And the Keshi in the ring are so well matched in shape and size. Love them !

    There is a big Tahitian Keshi collected some time ago. It is 16.2mm, like an acorn. Cute shape. I took a photo last month when I wore the pendant, together with a Keshi ring.
    Going floral again, I know, hehe.

    I wore two tiny Tahitian Keshi necklaces today. 3-5mm.
    Will remember to take neckshot of other Keshi pieces when I wear them.

    Lapis and Turquoise go very well with Tahitian , or WSS.

    One of my faviroute are two Turquoise nucleated Tahitian. I think there are photos on this phone , let me find and post, cause I have shown some friends my pearls earlier this year.

    Thank you so much for your kind words and all the support, ladies.
    I like funny , quirky things , maybe not very conventional.
    I have some conventional pearls , but not wearing them much, I guess those are quite commonly seen. . Can post some pictures if you also enjoy those big round GSS , Tahitian or WSS. Not many , a few.

    Among the conventional pearls , I prefer GSS and wearing them quite often.

    This one is 12-14. Very conventional. Suitable for most occasions. I wore it to wedding( not mine...sigh....), luncheons , dates(unsuccessful) , meetings, etc.
