    Longevity of CFWPs

    Hello back everyone. Yup, I am still collecting Jams, as I love them! This little pearl was with me as it was on the key ring with my house keys. However, I do not believe I took it out to share as it was nothing special. Would love to come over again for another Ruckus and to pay PP a visit...

    Longevity of CFWPs

    Hello PG, Long time no visit, hope everyone is OK and coping under the current crazy circumstances. I thought I would share this photo with you, to demonstrate the durability and longevity of CFWP. This little pearl is the remnant of the one I wire-wrapped myself back in 1997, and it had...

    Matching pearls?

    As mentioned in the thread, I prefer mix instead of match. If I wear white SSP necklace, I would not wear pearls in my ears, and the ring on my left hand would either be a coloured stone or a different pearl type or colour such as a SoC or black Tahitian. I have a set of earring jackets that...

    Diamond Huggies With Interchangeable Pearl Drops

    The pearls were full-drilled and I made the loops using Argentium head pins purchased from Rio Grande (I did not want to waste the 14K WG head pins as my wire-wrapping skill was rather rusty). DK :)
