    I love these clasps-what are they called and other questions?

    I just call them clasps with end caps, but I'm sure they have a better name and hopefully someone will answer that!! ;-) But I did want to tell you that I have ordered several times from WenPearls and have found what I ordered to be exactly as described and the shipping time was reasonable from...

  3. LBoone warning - they will rip you off - NOT akoya

    I saw that yesterday. Wow. I wonder if they know how much business they may have LOST by doing this. I had looked at some of their offerings on Etsy and might have given them a shot. Not now. I'll stick with Pearlhouse and Wen.....

Especially since it complements your Ren Faire dress!!!! (Can you tell I want to live vicariously through you???? If you do buy it...

    Dyed Pearls - Opinions?

    Actually everything I ever got from Honora was a hot mess! The "Tahitian" strands I will never part with, nor the pastel dyed one. Nor the "orange aide" strand! I still have a couple of strands of "circle" pearls, as they called them, that are sitting in my pearl stash with my beading supplies...

    Dyed Pearls - Opinions?

    I have a few strands of dyed freshwater pearls from Honora that I bought early on in my pearl buying life! Two of the strands are dyed in what I am sure was meant to imitate the look of a multicolor Tahitian strand. One of them is dyed in pastels. I have to admit it is quite pretty, but the...

    Matching pearls?

    I'm not matchy about wearing pearl earrings with strands, although I often do, I AM matchy about wearing only jewelry that is the same color as the metal color of the clasp with whatever pearls I am wearing. Like I can only wear yellow gold earrings if the findings on the pearl strand are...

    New Tahitians on the Way

    I would leave them as earrings at least for a while. They look really great on you. You can always change them later if you get tired of them as earrings! But I also really loved the layered pendant look, if you do change them I vote for 2 pendants rather than a pendant and a ring. And if...

    Rescued pearls

    I don't know what kind of pearls they are, but you certainly made a "silk purse from a sow's ear" as they say! I would say your rescue job was successful!

    how would you wear....

    I wear pearls with jeans and a flannel shirt, and I'm beyond a certain age!! ;-) When I wear really casual clothes, I tend to go with really classic pearls, like my white, round freshwater strand of average size or my smaller round white akoyas. For some reason, I think of my big freshwater...

    is the price right for this pearl?

    Maybe he's too busy trying to find out if any of his other pearls are a good deal......

    Convertible Necklace

    Here is one of my latest projects. The pearls are large, very cheap, FW pearls that I bought at a bead show. They have a lot of surface imperfections, but they were the right size for this project (and the price was right!) It is finished with a vermeil magnetic clasp, and the centerpiece was...
