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.

Baby Nurse, your last photo catches the iridescence beautifully.

I restrung my near round Tahitians, replacing a silver pearl with a dark peacock pearl. The difference is subtle but I like it.

Twice already I've had to restring it because the Pattye's Serafil thread was slipping out of the knot on the ball end of the clasp. The ball clasp is so much like the end pearl in size and shape that I tend to grab the wrong thing when unclasping it. This eventually stretched out the thread, but only on that side! The dab of glue I used on the knot this time should solve it.

The Tahitian Pearl Necklace

The Tahitian Pearl Necklace

Dear Pearl Dream,


You prefer making DIY pearl jewelry to buying other's finished ones. In its perspective, those ladies who have black or brown skin should wear peacock pearl necklaces, those with white and yellow skin should wear white, cream pearl necklaces.

Matched colors and harmonious art senses can bring elegance and beauty to people's eyes.

Kay - lovely WSS, I'm also a fan of the blossom setting

Baby nurse - gorgeous ripples! That iridescence!

PD - Wow those Tahitians are gorgeous! They really pop against your skin.

Thank you Katbran and hanadama!

Bigwellpearls, I do indeed enjoy making my own strands but I also purchase ready-made strands. This particular strand originated at Pearl Paradise and was sold to another pearl lover who later sold it to me, and I made modifications to it. :)
I do have white pearl strands but I seem to most frequently reach for my colored pearls: Tahitians, GSS and freshwaters with natural colors.

Kay, that is one stunning set of WSSs!

BN, beautiful golden ripples, perfect with that top/dress.

PD, gorgeous Tahitians, they look very summery, too, very pretty colours.

I wore my Tahitian tin cup the other day, and during the last few days it has been really hot and I have been in shorts and t-shirts, and my Fiji mabe blister pearl pendant. The colours don't show great in the photo, they are more intense in real life.

I was making a few things and had these components laying around, so I thought it would be fun to put them together. a little 11mm pink ripple and an ammonite pendant. Its alittle sloppy so I will probably redo it in the future (picture makes th pearl look a bit brassy to IRL its a light pink)
