    Show Us Your Pearls In Action!!!

    Toddler art class, grocery store, raking leaves, why not Tahitian pearls? Because if I wait for the right occasion, they'll never get worn! On a side note, does anyone know why portrait photos get kicked out and won't upload, but when its turned 90 degrees and becomes landscape there's no...

Its from Rio Grande, listed as a baroque silver clasp with rhodium plating. Its very well made, the hook locks in well and is sturdy. It's pretty large though, ~12x24mm. It...

    Help please, thread strength for rosebud necklace

    Thanks everyone for all of the information, I finally got the necklace finished. The smallest gimp at Rio turned out to work. I also scrutinized the moonstone beads a little more, and took out ones with rough drill holes. The ones left in were fatter and more rounded, and were no problem to...

    October Tahitians

    Sure! These were my "September Tahitians." I've been buying up loose strands and pearls, in retrospect I should have saved my money for one larger purchase when these October sales started up. But I'm having fun trying out all the types of pearls, and there's always next year! Here's a pic, I'll...

    Help please, thread strength for rosebud necklace

    I have one last question about this project if that's ok. I feel like as soon as I figure one aspect out, I encounter another problem. I have a feeling this is going to be happening frequently in the beginning. So I bought a cute silver clasp for this necklace, on close-out from Rio...

    Help please, thread strength for rosebud necklace

    Good morning everyone! This is my first post to the forum, and I wanted to thank everyone first and foremost. I found a necklace belonging to my grandmother this past summer, a cute little faux pearl strand. It was in rough condition, so I started looking into jewelers to restring it. After...
