    jeg - So many fabulous combinations ! I like your use of the Cortez pearls - great necklace ! And I love the colour of your Golden strand ... and all of the other pieces of course !

    Jesskat- I think the colour suits you ! Very pretty !

    Syd - The purples , I find, are as hard to photograph as Tahitians. There is a beige base colour that can come through in natural sunlight but they might appear purple in a light box or indirect light. I think with the purples/lavenders it's really important to get a few photo when possible.

    So many pretty combinations jeg, wonderful pearls.
    Jesskat, that strand looks great on you.
    SydK, very nice combination. Edisons are difficult, not only to photograph but then many of them are sort of duocrome, or is it multicrome. Maybe you cannot use that expression with pearls. They however shift from one color to another. I have some like that in my rainbow strand. You change the angle or light and then it's another color. Difficult to describe right I think. My edison huggies for example, one of the pearls shift to blue green and the other pink and orange, but normally they look the same. Those edisons I like. I bought a really purple strand from Lipearls, and that one was to purple.

    Wonderful to visit this thread and see all of the lovely pearls and stylings. While I don't get much time to post these days, I do usually sneak a peek at a couple of threads as a guilty pleasure!

    Jeg, not only do I want to roll around in your jewelry drawer, I also want a peek in your closet...you have a beautiful wardrobe!

    Thank you, jesskat, Katbran, Charlotta and JerseyPearl! Anytime JerseyPearl! I keep my clothes forever, so the closets are full.

    jesskat, the lavender strand is really pretty, but only you will know if it works for you!

    SydK, I love your pondslime pearls!!

    Wearing some of those chameleon, color shifting pearls from Pearls By The Bay. They are purply burgundy. The earrings I made are definitely copper, but next to these pearls they are a little pinky.

    I like the double gold beads between the purple pearls, Jeg. Showcases the lovely baroque shapes.
    Your wardrobe sounds like mine!

    Oh yes, very pretty and sparkly SydK!

    After receiving the golden SS pendant from Katbran, I asked her if she could keep an eye out for a Tahitian drop that I could wear with my pearl chains. She found a pearl in her stash that was just what I was looking for. A nice, simple rope bail was added and then the journey by mail. Thanks, Katbran!!
    Worn with a blue Akoya Keshi pearl chain from Kojima.

    It’s starting to feel like spring here. The lovely seasonal pastels in Jeg’s Kojima mixed rope (back in post #14664) inspired me to make my own mini pink and yellow pastel strand. These are mostly the less-bronze pearls leftover from my recent pondslime kick, plus the cloudiest beads from a strand of pink tourmaline and a few Akoya from a very yellowed old strand that someone gave me recently and I really wasn’t sure I’d ever find a use for.

    jeg - I'm so pleased that he found a good home He will have lots of pearly friends that's for sure. I'm also pleased that I had just what you were looking for - a nice great big solid colour drop ! That big round 14k bail is great as you can see how easily the tiny pearl rope fits through. Those blue Keshi... fab colour
    Your metallic rope is beautiful , you've inspired me to turn some into a rope ! And of course your drop earrings are inspired!

    Sydk - You do look ready for summer ! Isn't it fun to make your own things... and remake...and remake .

    Thanks so much, SydK and Katbran! Haha- a LOT of pearly friends, for sure!

    Your new creation is so pretty, SydK! You’re so lucky to be heading into Spring! Spring and Summer are by far my favorite seasons. Many of my friends around here love Fall because of the change in colors, but it is my least favorite season. I prefer sunshine and days with endless hours of daylight.
