    I made a big tassel today. Wearing it with Tahitians on leather and planning to make many more and better ones in future from these magical shiny Japanese sterling threads: https://www.etsy.com/listing/6357053...search_click=1

    BWeaves- you look stunning. The 4 strands with the enhancer and the drop earrings all together are really spectacular.

    Oh, only now I scrolled back: BWeaves, such a fantastic outfit! The pure essence of classic pearl adornment.

    Morella, that silver leaf thread is amazing. How does it feel? Soft, stiff? I love the whole look with the spikes and the leather knots. Very edgy.

    Thank you Corvettegirel & BWeaves!
    The silver leaf thread is a bit on the stiffer side, but still moves enough to work in tassels. It really is incredibly shimmery in real life, I have the silvery sage green too. I suffered through unwinding onto a bobbin though - a BIG tendency to kink and twist.

    It's hard to capture the true beautiful colors on Tahitian pearls depending on the lighting but I try my best

    I decided to restring my blue rope with the Sky color. I use a 2x visor so I can see what the heck I'm doing, and of course at 2x magnification, I can see every freaking flaw in every pearl. So I get out my other blue strands to view at 2x magnification, and now I notice wonky knots in two of the other strands, so I'm going to restring those, too. But it looks like I used Aqua in those two other strands, because they are a much lighter blue. I think I'll restring the middle tone blue necklace with Sky and the really light necklace with Aqua.

    Currently they're all having a nice spa bath, and then a nap wrapped in soft towels with little cucumber slices on their eyes and a margarita. That's the other thing I noticed under magnification. All the crud that's built up. Most likely sunscreen and sweat. Ew.

    I use a 10 x visor and it can be a bit of a nightmare ... tiny flaws suddenly appear in 'flawless pearls' . Quite discouraging at times lol I like that sky colour and i'm going to string some deep multi tahitians in 'Night' and see how that goes as they are more of a grey base that green. I quite like Forest for the Green base.


    Morella - Lovely necklaces and the tassel is great. What a fascinating link to those threads..I've not seen them before. Maybe BWeaves has ?

    Undermagnification, I swear the nacre may be getting thinner on some pearls but then when I view the rope with just my eyes, I think, that's how they always looked. I do think the nacre is thinner on these small BBAs. My bigger BBAs have very thick nacre. One strand I have I know the nacre is very thick because the nucleus inside each pearl is loose and it's hard to find the hole all the way through. Those were a nightmare to string. These little ones were easy to string, but some of the pearls seem a bit browner than I remember. Still, I love this rope, and will wear it until it wears out. I'm singing the blues forever.

    I work with a task lamp and reading glasses and no, don't want to see 'em any closer
    Speaking of Sky. I just made this rope with Sky. Would probably use Storm if I had it in the right size, or Navy if I had it. Time to stock up
    My sis is modeling them for me. please ignore a simple tee, she was NOT in a mood to model really But you can probably see the Sky.

    What a gorgeous rope, Masik!! How long is it & what are the mm sizes of the pearls? Did you get the pearls from Cees or another vendor. I love the colors & luster of it!
