    My pearls

    Thank you AzFlyGirl. You are right, that ombre tahitian rope from Cees is a masterpiece. It has everything, hardly a blemish, round, great luster and color. That and my rainbow strand from Pearlescence are the two strands with the most classic perfect pearls. Not that I don't like the other, I...

    My pearls

    Still waiting for those autumn pearls. But I did come up with some new ideas though. I am thinking about making a special bracelet for a special person, a familymember. She loves leopard prints in pretty much anything and even adopted a vimsical lamp with that pattern that I didn't use anymore...

    Very pretty tahitians SydK. That color looks great on you. I still have my first good tahitian strand from Cees and haven't changed a pearl. Sometimes I connect it with an extender, that's all. Mine have some blemishes as well but the color and the luster is just amazing. I especially like all...

    Well jeg I have quite a number of fun bracelets, not sure how many. I did make 10 Happy bracelets over the summer...such pretty akoya earrings. I have been wearing smaller studs for months, very comfortable. Sometimes they doesn't even match my strands, there are so many colors in my bracelets...

    Some pearls that I have put aside for the autumn strand. Forgot to photograph the purple edisons though. Greenish golden south sea pearls from Druzydesign Golden south sea pearls from Druzydesign Green tahitian drops like these, from cmw pearls Some peacocky tahitian, maybe for tree...

    My pearls

    Thank you CortezPearls. Unfortunately cats on quilts are the reason that I don't make them much anymore. They do ruin them quickly with their claws whilst running around. And I rather have the cats than the quilts. They are such lovely unpredictable funny cats. Whilst making the Oceans Wave...

    My pearls

    Thank you CortezPearls. Whilst waiting for pearls for my autumn strand I play with the pearls that I already have. I so wanted to make a sea strand, then I recently got an idea about making an Oceans Wave strand, with the shorter ombre blue tahitian strand from cmw pearls. I made those two ombre...

    eolian pearls. Beautiful colors on your Happy bracelet. I do have an unusual colored tahitian in my first Happy bracelet. It's originally from a multicolored tahitian strand from Pearlescence, that I remade into my ombre ombre strand. Well the coppery almost red pearl has a color that I have...

    My pearls

    Thank you eolian pearls. It accually really fun to try to capture something like the sunrise or the ocean. I tried to make a Day strand as an opposite to the Night strand, but no inspiration whatsoever. The Spring Flower bracelets however was easy to imagine. I am itching to make an autumn...

    My pearls

    Thank you CortezPearls, I also find it hard to incorporate gemstone beads with pearls. Normally I prefer to just use pearls. The jadeit beads do however bring out the colors in those otherwise quite silver gray tahitians, especially in sunshine. I am however back to just pearls having remade...

    My pearls

    I did get other colors of jadeit beads, well they were mixed. I remade the jadeit pig bracelet some. Well I did remove some peacock tahitians... ​I also made this reversable bracelet, one lilac side with a tahitian and one green side with a south sea pearl. I just svivel it around when I want a...

    My pearls

    I do have another piece of impressionistic inspired pearly creation. Remember all those carved jadeit lotus flower beads. My only real rule about making these painterly pieces are that they have to be an interpretation about what I see, feel or for example read. Thus I cannot make a desert...

    My pearls

    I do love my Spring Flower bracelets, but I had to make just one more. I forgot to add the snow drops...I love snow drops, even though they aren't the most colorful. Anyway...third Spring Flower bracelet. All three of them And with my Spring Green strand The three bracelet connects easily...

    I know, incredible color. They go with everything. Except with maybe golden south seas. Here with a pair of silvery blue tahitians from cmw pearls. I know what you mean about aubergine tahitians. Amazing if the color is just right, but sometimes they look muddy, on me at least. I have an 8mm...
