Thank you for all your kind comments. Took out the purple strand for a group shot:

The earrings are 11mm n a bit lighter than the purple strand but still a decent match esp when separated by a neck. Got them from Lecollier on Rakuten at a great price so am quite happy with them.

Icy that is such a beautiful purple strand. It looks perfect with your skin color. I am so jelly. Purple pearls go bland on me. Oh well I can just enjoy looking at yours on you ;) Thanks for pulling the strand out for a picture.

Newberry, pls get Jeremy to find a few strands of dark purples with different shades to try at the next ruckus (personally I love purples with blue overtones). They come in so many different shades and there must be one that can work on you. If that purple strand can work on someone like me who cannot wear pastels or creams (including typical fw lavender color), I've a feeling anyone can wear them. It's too bad I can't go to the ruckus else I will definitely bring this strand for you to try.

Icy I have already tried on so many purple strands at Pearl Paradise. A couple of years ago Jeremy brought in lots of the graduated purple metallic strands and last year the two light and dark exquisite big round Edison's. I have tried them all on hoping to find the one. Also on my first trip to visit Sarah at Kojima over five years ago I had just seen Blaire's TDF Kasumi ring. I was determined to find a purple Kasumi for a ring. We went through dozens looking for a purple Kasumi that looked good on my hand. No luck. So I will just have to enjoy looking at everyone else's.

I'm excited because I will be receiving a package from Sarah soon with my new spring trip pearls :)

So many beautiful pearls, it's hard to keep up! As a counterpoint to all the elegance, here's my casual corset-making pearly look for today - a long- forgotten pondslime fireball tin cup, with infant octo on velvet stretchy cord, denim blue workshirt...

Woo hoo, on the third try I got the photo to go right side up!!!

That's one of my octotrolls peeking over my shoulder, in case anyone was curious...

Ok, back to slaving over a hot sewing machine...

Not my pearls but recently, a 13-year old girl begging on the streets went viral in The Philippines because of her beauty, and the Internet called her "Badjao Girl". Badjaos are deep sea divers who traditionally hunted for natural pearls in The Philippines and Indonesia. I just noticed she is wearing some nice pearl dangles and from the color, although I can't find a close up photo to be certain, it looks like nice south sea pearls. :)

The troll dolls are hilarious. Perlas why is she begging on the streets, is it to supplement the family's income?

They are poor but as divers it might be a family heirloom. Badjaos are deep sea divers without the aid of equipment.

What a beautiful girl! It's a shame she and her family probably won't benefit from her photos going viral.

I had to "dress to impress" yesterday, so out came my WSS pearls from Pearl Paradise. The 10-12 mm oval strand is from the sale last fall and the 11-12 mm drop earrings are from my first trip to PP in 2014. These are favorites of mine.
