    I made this with what my daughter calls 'macaroni beads'. She is remembering when in preschool she made necklaces out of actual macaroni. I think these silver ones are really neat, with amethysts.

    PEARLS BY THE BAY 2022 - MAY 15th

    I managed to join, but it kicked me off after an hour. I figured no problem, I'll just get back on. But it didn't let me, and I missed most of Douglas' talk, sigh.

    Thank you, Douglas, jeg! The colors are wonderful. I had some pearls left over, so I made earrings, and I still have a few more:

    I got a pastel bracelet set from CMW, and used it to extend my pastel tahitians. I really like the result!

    Here is a tin cup I made not too long ago. The pearls are from Kong's Pearl. I hope the image uploads... It worked!

    Another strand from CMW. They are strung with aquamarines. My main problem is that the strand is too short for me to look at while I'm wearing it! I've had a lot of trouble posting.

    Thank you, all! I recently finished a wire link of a set from CMW Pearls: Note: I had to crop the image to get by the file size limit.

    Faceted Tahitian pearls?

    I bought some faceted pearls from Wen, on Etsy. They were of varying quality. (Note: the picture was taken from a distance, then cropped to fit the file size limit -- the pearls are actually rounder than they look):

    I love the chocolate jasper, but I like this one, too: dragon's blood jasper, with pearls...

    Now for chocolate jasper and pearls... some problems with stringing, so I will probably redo it eventually. and a closeup of the chocolate jasper, which has amazing color variations and patterns...

    This is the bracelet set I got from CMW Pearls, with a few added in from Druzy Design (including the big one), wire linked on 24 gage sterling:
