    More de-stashing - some more of the Tahitians from Wen with dyed rice freshies (not sure why I ever bought these) and gold- filled spacers.

    Beautiful SydK, both the tourmaline/tahitian and the tahitian/ricepearl one.

    SydK,

    Perfect use for the little fw as spacers, excellent luster and fun Tahitians, all so wearable!

    It’s an unusual combination, it really works well together, well done!

    I impulsively bought this silvery-pink Tahitian pearl some time ago and then later acquired these silver Tahitian keshi. Thought I would combine them with Beaders' Secret in Candy. This was my first attempt at knotting and I've since re-done the strand with tighter knots. The pearls look unimpressive against my skin, but they light up against dark fabric.

    Ooh, pretty! I love the Candy colour thread, and that centre Tahitian is a beauty. It looks great on you.
    I’ve been knotting so much I’m getting a blister, but now I want to make something with pink thread...

    Love the components, and the "candy" makes them Yummy!

    Thank you, SydK and Narcissa. It always fascinates me how our perception of Tahitian colours is so dependent on the surroundings.
    And thank you to Bernadette for the beading materials - great service!
