    pearls & lace

    Lace and silk are obvious pearl accompaniments, which makes lingerie an ideal pairing, no? ;) This is a lovely freshwater tin cup necklace from Etsy shop LiliasTreasures (Thanks, battah!) and absolutely stunning rosy gold (with rose gold findings, naturally, love the hooks on these) ripple...

    Pearlescence golden/pink/lavender ripple dangles

    Stunning golden/lavender/pink (so lovely!) ripples just arrived from Wendy at Pearlescence. Great customer service from them! These are about 13mm, on gold hooks. Love! Wait 'til you see the strand that matches, will try to get a good close-up shot... ...forthcoming!

    pinstripe vignette

    Hi all, I was putting together an outfit and really loved the colors in this shot, thought I'd share ;). The ivory of the pearls really comes through next to the browns and neutrals. This is a PP 8mm necklace and 9mm studs. I often like selecting studs slightly larger than the necklace I'll...

    My 100" rope!

    Was definitely inspired by doubledouble's recent post on 18 ways to wear 100" rope. (So awesome, linked here) http://www.theseventhsphinx.com/fashion/features/lady-lightning/http://www.theseventhsphinx.com/fashion/features/lady-lightning/ This is knotted in a psuedo bow. 6.5-7mm, from PP...

    so many pearls, so few...arms

    It's as if I was trying to figure out how many pearls I could wear in a single frame. Love stacking multi-strand braclets, lately, and wearing a mix of gold and white/ivory. Golden Akoya earrings (PP), Freshadama ring (PP), Cherry Tahitian pendant, potato freshwater bracelets (eBay)...

    Pearls for a Leo

    I wanted to hang this lion head pendant on a long gold chain but didn't have one. Of course my next thought was, why not hang it on some pearls? This is an 8mm PP necklace and 11mm studs. More pics in the post!

    the 6-7mm choker

    Here's an inexpensive little choker I picked up from the eBay seller gw_greatworldpearlfarm. The luster isn't anything special but the pearls are well matched in size and look round enough for my purposes (I like a potato or off-round shape, anyway). I wanted this as more of a costume piece (my...

    white linen (a pearlicious ensemble)

    These are the 8mm PP studs I like so well, the 10mm PP freshadama ring I mentioned before, 2 freshwater potato 8-strand bracelets from eBay, and a gorgeous cherry Tahitian pendant. I love a really simple pendant like this with a white v-neck or button down, and I like pearls against a white...

    leather and pearls

    I always like the contrast of pearls and leather. Pearls go with everything, to be sure, but they go especially well with other natural materials, I think. I really like them with softer, neutral leathers, a brown suede, for example, but the black motorcycle jacket amps up the contrast...

    PP Freshadama ring!

    I picked up a long, long awaited PP Freshadama ring in the spring sale, and so pleased I opted to go for the 10mm size (which is pretty big, I would say! Even on my hand, which is not small). I requested an ivory tone. It's subtle, I think, but there. [paired here with a simple...

    teardrops for spring/summer

    I've been hunting for some teardrops with a height/width ratio I really like, and these are about right (12x16mm). I wanted them quite fat (rather than long and thin). These are just shell earrings from eBay, costume pearls, but they have a great shine, and I wanted this look without the...

    classic white strand with fur cloak

    This could have gone in Pattye's white round strand challenge/thread, too! Though I'm not doing anything special with the styling of the strand here. Just...wearing it. Feel so glam in pearls and fur. This is a PP AAA 18" 8mm strand, ivory tones though I don't think you can really tell at...

    lavender metallics, golden akoyas

    Lavender metallics (7mm) from PoJ paired with natural golden akoyas (7.5mm) from PP: These metallics are off round with rosy tones - so, so lovely in person. And the akoyas I mentioned already. I see what everyone has been saying about metallics now! Mesmerizing. Sometimes I like the...

    natural golden akoyas

    I picked these up in PP's last promotion. Gold is basically my favorite color, so I was drawn to these akoyas, not so dark as some South Sea pearls (which I would love to invest in one day but not quite there yet) but distinctly tinted. These are 7.5mm There is a slightly green cast to the...

    the peacock lariat

    Here is a lovely piece I styled from bluebirrrd's Etsy shop - a gorgeous peacock lariat, about 50" long. The color and style lent it to a bohemian look, we agreed, especially when worn as a wrap bracelet. I can't decide whether I like it as a bracelet or a necklace better... Which do...

    lace and studs OR Taking 'timeless' literally

    The flipside of pearls being appropriate now and for the future is pearls being appropriate to the past...or historical dress. These are the 10-11mm studs. You've seen them before but you get an especially good sense of the size here with the side angle, and the shaft of sunlight is like a...

    Denim and pink drop pearls

    I love pink pearls with denim. These are battah's pink drops! (the neck shot is not in the post - that is all for you, PG ;) ) http://www.theseventhsphinx.com/fashion/features/denim-denim/

    pearl suit at Chanel Spring 2014

    Chanel returns to pearls again and again, often trying something new. Here's a suitdress encrusted with pearls, with asymmetrical monster gumballs at the throat. http://www.chanel.com/en_US/fashion/products/ready-to-wear/g/s.look-6-spring-summer-2014.14S.14S6.html I don't love this look but...

    statement keshis

    I'd never seen keshis in person (it's difficult to find them - I'm sure I'm not alone, this crowd aside), but recently borrowed some pieces from battah's Etsy shop (Thanks, battah!) to play with. They are really incredible, they seem like they are from another planet - but still just as...
