    I couldn’t wait to do something with the SS keshi I got in Hong Kong, but I didn’t have a supply of pearls to mix them with. I was excited to find these small temp strands while visiting PP this week. (There are pictures posted in the “other” thread from our vault visit)

    I worked on this harvest style strand this morning, incorporating the small SS keshi I had.

    My mission in going to PP was to have this special golden SS pearl from the Ruckus set in one of Hisano’s diamond bails, so I could wear it with the strand of tiny Vietnamese Akoya.

    Beautiful work Jeg! I love all those creamy colours and shapes together. And the tiny Akoyas are spectacular with that big golden one!

    I took some hours yesterday to knot the tiniest freshwater pearlies onto coral silk. Looking forward to layer them with a longer strand of coral beads. I've been craving coral so badly recently - could it be 2019?!

    Bweaves, your PP tahitians are really beautiful.
    Jeg, that golden pendant turned out great, beautiful color. And your harvest style necklace is beautiful. Love your ombre south sea strand.

    Morella, that looks great. I bet it took a while to knot with all those tiny pearls.

    Keep posting, you guys! Beauties everywhere, pearls and posters, and you knotters are amazing - you keep getting better and better! Those little pearls that you manage to work with, and not spill all over the place as you knot, just getting beautiful results! Are you as pleased as punch? We're pleased and proud as all get out for you!

    Morella, how did you finish your tinies? Jeg, how about you?

    I'm just catching up, folks I have to thank you. I'm never disappointed, coming to PG at night is always a beautiful treat, thanks to you guys.

    Jersey, it's always best to best the kids with pics of how we were the coolest ever! I was at one of the pre-opening days in 1971! Mid-week, school group, for me. Do you still have your stubs??? I was 16 then, and lost all my tickets and money after three rides. I like Disney movies better than the parks.

    And, I had 2 pr of gorgeous wooden clogs. 1 of cork-bottom that were so high they were banned from Maas Bros sales floor, because we kept twisting our ankles. Ironic, since we'd bought them there. I had the wooden clogs and Disney stubs until 2016...

    Thank you Charlotta, Corvettegirl and Lisa!
    I have just used a very small silver spring clasp light enough to stay in the back of my neck. That tiny strand is really lovely to wear as it's virtually weightless and I forget that I have it on, even slept in it tonight.

    Those tiny pearls look great on the coral, Morella - I admire your patience (and dexterity) in knotting them all!
    Jeg’s Pearls are stunning as always.

    Thank you, Morella, Charlotta, 86C, Lisa and SydK!

    Morella, that is a sweet strand of tinies highlighted with the coral thread!

    Lisa, I just used a lobster clasp to finish the strand.

    JEG: Love the pearls with the polka dot neckline.

    Morella: Wowza. Your tiny pearl necklace is adorable. The coral knots really sets it off and makes it look special.

    JEG- Your pearls are lovely and the SS pendant with the tiny pearls is just gorgeous.

    Moretta- The tiny pearl necklace is so pretty with the coral silk and I admire your skill in stringing them.

    My natural antique strand arrived and is very pretty with a gorgeous clasp. I never, ever, want to have to restring this one, the end pearls are teeny weenie itsy beanie small There goes my plan to maybe combine it with my other natural strand.
