I LOVE not only the pictures of your Mom and her wonderful pearls -- but also that she was willing to be photographed in her pearl glory! Thank her for allowing you to share her pearl splendor with us. Terrific photos!!! Happy Chanukah.
She's my style icon and my fashion inspiration. So, yup, I tend to copy her. (We all turn into our mothers at some point, right?)
She always keeps up with what is in fashion. She never dresses too young, but she always looks much younger than she is because she dresses up to date and always has her hair done, her nails manicured, and her makeup and jewelry on. She feels naked without earrings.
My new 6-7 mm Vietnamese blue akoya rope with my 9 mm Vietnamese baroque blue akoya necklace and my Kojima blue grey drops.
I'm really amazed at how well the natural blue pearls photograph. They just glow. I compare them to my dyed blues, which look great in real life, but look terrible in photographs, which leads me to believe they don't look as good as I think they do.
Have been on a fairly long hiatus from wearing pearl necklaces but it's my last few days of work before taking a (maternity) break plus all those delicious Vietnamese blues that I've been seeing online made me in the mood to dig out some pearls to wear.

No natural light shots cos its too warm to be in the sun (I'm a mini heat generator now!).
