And, I know! re SoC return-to-the-Sea pearls.

You know who else's bucket I'd like to get into? Josh's.

Ever since watching the 2014 Ruckus video, I've been obsessed with the thought of what Celeste said is in that bucket. I want to be one of the critters on their wall, so he'd throw pearls at me, only I'd be SuperCritter, and catch all the pearls in a net.
I'd teleport home and examine my haul,
then come back again to perch on their wall.

Ha-ha, Celeste!!! See what you have set een motion, ma petite!

Yup, I think the Swan is my favorite. The colors it puts out just kill me. And it's perfect on really hot days. I don't feel like my sunscreen is melting all over it.

Today I dug out my first BBAs from PP. Now they seem more silver to me, since I have darker blues. I'm always a little underwhelmed with them until I see them in photos, and they just glow, and then I fall in love with them all over again. I find it funny how some pearls are so hard to photograph, and yet others look better in the photos than in real life.

Those are gorgeous on you, BWeaves. Lustrous and beautiful shapes!

I'm wearing CC ripples. I love the metallic pastels.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Tourmaline and Peterite (if I remember correctly), on a beaded kumihimo braided necklace. The little seed pearls are probably glass beads, but they look like pearls.

Love the reborn keshi look. Keshi are one of my favorite pearls. :)

I'm a little embarrassed now after finding out the real meaning of reborn pearls. I spent years assuming reborn pearls were ones that were taken off their original strand and reused. :eek:

After a cultured pearl is removed, the oyster or clam or mussel is returned to the water and a new pearl grows in the old pearl sac without having been seeded with new mantle tissue and without a new bead. The pearl is 100% nacre, but usually not round. Mine look roundish in the middle where the pearl sac held the original cultured pearl, and then flat and long where the slit was made for the insertion or removal of the pearl, I think.
