    Thanks ParrotLady, Jeg, BW, & Charlotta! Y'all are all so sweet!

    We had our share of difficulties with both boys & there were times they thought we were the meanest parents in the world. Now that they are experiencing life as adults, they now realize we weren't as dumb or mean as they thought we were. We are all very close now.

    LOL! My father used to say that as a young many, he noticed that the older he got, the smarter his parents became.

    Thanks so much, Charlotta!


    Change in pearls, change in weather...

    Long strand made of Vietnamese Akoya from the Hong Kong show. Worn with a custom necklace from Kojima, made with SS golden and white keshi I sent them from the Hong Kong show. Large golden SS Kojima pendant hanging from the orbit clasp. Sarah’s team discussed this project and created the most versatile version. Two strands with open orbit clasps on all four ends. I can connect them, create lariats, and each one can be wrapped as bracelets.

    It's been probably over a year and half since I've posted, and I've never posted much, and I've been catching up with this thread. I didn't want to post until I was able to view all of the beautiful pearls and styles. My husband calls this my "pearlnography".

    But, I've caught up and now get to post a few photos. The first is a Kamoka pearl I wore yesterday, I got it some time in 2017, I think, maybe early 2018. The camera and/or my camera skills and the light don't begin to do this beauty justice, I just love it. Name:  IMG_20190513_204447088.jpg

    The second, if I'm able to post more than one at a time, is a BEAUTIFUL Kojima tin cup which arrived a few days ago. There are so many things I thought I didn't like, until seeing others on this site wearing those styles/etc, then I realized how much I do like them. Oxidized silver is one of them, didn't think I'd like it, but on this necklace, I love it. Also, and I'm afraid you can't see them, are Tahitian kasha from Kojima I'm also wearing. Didn't think I would like Tahitians, and I love them, or keshi, and I LOVE these little earrings. Name:  IMG_20190514_202735827.jpg

    Heheheh. I never liked tin-cups until I saw the ones from Kojima. Now I own at least five. I never thought I liked Tahitians until I saw keshi and the lighter colored T's. I never thought I liked ripples until I saw some of the amazing necklaces that our fellow PearlGuiders have. This site is dangerous.

    BritM - Your Kamoka pearl is so pretty and that's a style that works with everything, such a classic ! And your Tin Cup- looks great. I love the Oxidised silver , makes the pearl jump out.

    Thanks so much, Katbran! I don’t purge my clothes very often. (Although I’m about due) I always find use for something even when it’s years old, all of a sudden it goes with something I just found. In other word, I have very full closets and drawers!

    BritM, I love Kamoka and I love Kojima, and I love both your pieces!!! Lovely! That’s impressive you caught up on a year and a half of posts! I can’t imagine...

    It has all the pearls in it..white baroque south seas, white bluish freshwater keshis, bluish akoyas, grey tahitian drops, peacock circled tahitians, peach freshwater keshis, off-round copper freshwaters, pale pink freshwaters, pink greenish ripples, golden greenish south seas, vintage baroque akoyas, round tiny vintage akoyas and smaller white ripples. Like a pearl sampler.

    Katbran- the Fijis and the earrings are stunning. Very classy.

    Jeg, I just stop commenting because I run out of superlatives. I just sit back and enjoy the show!

    I don't always comment, but love all the pearls, the ombres, tin cups, etc!
