    Sounds like so much fun, Jeg! My mother-in-law collected tea cups, so we always used those for coffee after dinner, setting the table with them. We all have some of hers spread throughout the family. Have fun!

    Thank you, Jeg & Charlotta. Some of the ladies at the nail salon had to try them on.

    Last year I sent my mother's akoya pearls off to PP to be restrung, but the pearls were in such bad shape that they really couldn't be worn. Even though I have 7 or 8 akoya necklaces of my own, my mother's pearls have sentimental value. So, I ordered a strand of unknotted gem grade fwp from Pearls of Joy during their sale and strung them onto Mom's clasp. I'll keep the crappy old pearls in her jewelry box, but now I can at least wear her clasp. The pearls are 7.5-8mm and knotted are 20". They look really pink and that bothered me, but they look white when worn. In honor of President's Day, here they are with my cherry sweater.

    86CG & ParrotLady, you both look so elegant in your white pearls! Anything embroidered catches my eye, love the tunic and the white sweater!
    Could you post a close up of the clasp, PL? If you did before, I may have missed it. A good solution for when pearls are just too worn to restring; both necklaces have great luster!

    Gemandpearlover - your necklace looks great..I had no idea there were so many Koi items until I saw your Connector and looked up Koi on ETSY.
    It looks wonderful, now I'm thinking about getting a Koi charm !

    86C- Your pieces look wonderful, I do love the Blue Akoya. Fast becoming a favourite pearl ! Love that the nail salon women tried them on!

    jeg- that is a gorgeous bracelet ! It's always difficult to adjust the length on larger or long pearls isn't it... little pearls make for an easy fix...larger you do have to just keep trying until you find the right combo! Good luck and do post the finished bracelet please !

    Thanks, Katbran!

    86C and ParrotLady, you both look lovely in your white pearls. 86C, I hope it was a joyous celebration. ParrotLady, they look very white on your sweater- even next to the pink cherries.

    Patty, it's a 17x4mm brushed gold box clasp with her monogram engraved on it. It's pretty heavy so lies nice and flat.

    Thank you, Charlotta, Bcm21mk, CathyKeshi, Pattye, & Jeg. We had a wonderful time! We left the reception at 10:30 & the party was still rocking. Unexpected touch was she wore the 17" Akoya necklace hubby & gave her when she graduated HS. She looked beautiful & they make such a handsome couple. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

    Katbran, it was so funny when one of the ladies asked to try on the tin cup, then another one wanted to try on the rope, then the necklaces got passed around from one to another. Many had never seen blue Akoya.

    Parrot Lady, the redo of your mother's pearls looks fantastic. What a wonderful way to honor her. They look absolutely beautiful on you!
