    My new ombre tahitian rope from Cees. It's more beautiful than I thought possible, Cees are amazing in finding what I want (with a vague description from my part mostly). This truly is my dreamstrand. I knotted it yesterday (an hour after recieving them) with Pattyes Beaders secret in navy. As promised neckshots, with fluffy sweater to wear only indoors when cold (and pyjamapants...)

    The pearls are about 9-10,closer to 9mm and the strand was 34-35 inch before knotting...forgot to measure it after.

    With my Rikitea strand, also from Cees. I think that I can wear them together and get a really long rope look.

    Thanks Marianne
    Charlotta, that rope is just magnificent. Perfect size and length, as well as glorious colours and luster. Did you use the navy Beaders’ Secret to string it?
    My blue pendant is very humble next to such a rope, but it is just what I wanted and I’m so happy with it. I got it from Eric at Tahitianpearldesigner on Etsy, who I think you have also purchased from? His pearls are always so colourful - I have a few things from him that I’m very happy with.

    PS I love the idea of a thread of bad purchases - I might start digging through my old and neglected pieces and taking some pictures. They can at least be useful as a cautionary tale about what not to buy.

    BWeaves, you look so summery and colorful. Yikes 90 degrees! That’s hot.

    Syd, I love your pendant and choker combination. The pendant is really pretty and looks great with that bail, too! Pendants are my “go to” pearls.

    Charlotta, that is a smashing new dream strand. Enjoy wearing that beautiful new piece!

    I will look forward to seeing the strand of cast off pearls from both of you! I think it might make for a very interesting strand!

    Thank you SydK and Jeg. SydK, it's so funny that you did buy that beautiful pendant from TahitiPearldesigner. I was wondering if it's was from them since I thought I recognized the finding. They have so nice findings, not flimsy at all, more sturdy looking and I like that in findings. I have a pair of champagne south sea studs and a floating tahitian pearl on a chain from them. Yes I did use navy. I use that on my multicolor rikiteas as well. I love that color.

    This pearl cascade was one of many things I tried on during my visit to the Kojima Studio last month. I liked the way it fit and couldn’t resist.

    The white pearl chain is from my visit to the studio last year, and the pendant is a silver blue SS Myanmar pearl from Druzy.

    Pipe burst in my wall behind the water heater and flooded my dining room and garage. Grrr. It's really cutting into my pearl budget.

    Running around yesterday to find new flooring. Kojima freshwater keshis, long ombre rope, 26" tin-cup and matching earrings.

    jeg, I love the long strand of weensy pearls with the blue pendant! A fave combo! I have a short (19"?) seed pearl strand that I wear with a lovely blue pearl. The bubble strands are great, too!
