    Jeg, I want to go shopping with you! Everything about your style is fabulous. Today is Eid, so although I’m sadly at work, I’m sporting some festive henna with my GSSP harvest rope.

    Long time no share, guys! My office has been preparing to move, so I haven’t been dressing up or wearing pearls much lately. But I do wear the bracelets in the first photo every day (they’re actually two necklaces wrapped around my wrist), one is little lavender freshies and one is “Edison...

    I didn’t wear any pearls today, but have some fun new pearly accessories! Not great photos, but I used some of the little pearls I’ve been collecting to decorate some phone cases. Yes, real freshwater pearls on my phone, because I’m extra like that &#55358;&#56611;. If anyone is interested I...

    BWeaves you’re making me want to place an order for stuff I hopefully won’t need soon (when will it cool down here?!) Today’s stuffs - book locket with Kojima pearl, flower ring with Hisano freshie center, and beetle wing earrings! I’m loving these earrings, and they make such a pretty sound...

    Favorite sources for gemstone beads?

    Hey friends! I'm working on a few projects for myself, and am in need of gemstone beads. What are your favorite sources for them? There's so much stuff out there, but I'd love to find a reliable source of nice-quality beads. Rio and Firemountaingems have lots of stuff, but I find them a bit...

    Yesterday’s look, take 2, since I broke the thread on the keshi strand right after taking the photo yesterday so I didn’t actually get to wear it. Today I added some big ripple rings - the pearls are from Kong on Etsy, silver rings are cheap findings. They’re not amazing pearls but are fun to wear.

    Purr, you're the sweetest! I love how excited you get about the stuff I make you, that makes me feel good <3 That's why I make jewelry - the smiles and happy feels! Speaking of smiles and happy feels, lmgarden's keshi and multicolored fwp totally did that for me, so I attempted something...

    Today’s look - I went rummaging through boxes and bags of strands I bought but never used because I wanted some rad layers like I saw at Ruckus. These, for some reason, don’t photograph well at all but they’re all very colorful and pretty in person!

    Here’s a kind of terrible photo of today’s pearls. Gorgeous Kamoka Tahitian keshi bracelet with sterling flower ring with a freshwater keshi center. This is similar to the horn one I wore at Ruckus, but the band is plain silver.

    Keeping it simple today with this ring. Hand-sculpted silver flower in a horn ring, with one of the beautiful freshwater keshi Hisano found for me in HK last year. It’s so hard to get an accurate photo of the pearl, I’m not sure why.

    Gorgeous pearls, everyone! What a nice pick-me-up this afternoon! PD those goldens are just heavenly. And Charlotta your clasp collection is fabulous! Today’s fun pearl piece that I just made. I love cuffs, but they slide around a lot on my wrists so I may look into some kind of lining. But I...

    Red, that ring is so sexy (and therefore is well-named!) Keg, you have the best collection! Major pieces like the GSSP, but also really fun, whimsical pieces. I really love the simply adorned necklace with the drop/flutter pearls, that’s so cool. Current fave - lotus pendant with white...

    jeg, love your reworked strand! That’s some seriously gorgeous luster. BW I just adore your swan, it’s so lovely! Today’s look - I removed a few pairs of GSSP from my harvest strand to get it to the right length, and turned them into earrings. They’re wrapped with a tiny loop at either end so...

    MSC, very pretty! jeg, CathyKeshi, BWeaves, and Pareltje, thank you! jeg, confusion totally understood. So when Purr and I initially split a harvest strand, I strung up my portion with some akoya keshi (pic below). I've loved wearing it like that, so when we split a second strand I wasn't...

    jeg that dangly T necklace is lovely! And I love your pendant chain :) I couldn’t decide between restringing my new harvest GSSPs with my old ones or keeping the akoya keshi bubble rope configuration, so I combined them. Wearing it around to see how I like it. The length is just right to wear...
