Wildly spectacular pearls, ladies!! Kalmen your multi color Tahitian strand from Jacques is stunning on you. Icy, those drops are absolutely spectacular, and Newberry that pendant is perfection!
Battah, my pin attachment skills are so unprofessional.! All I did was slip the pin across the 2 clasps, as shown. The size of the pearl keeps the pin from sliding down - somehow it works with a few different pins. I really want to figure out a way to make it work with a slender bow pin I have, as shown.
JP, thanks for the encouragement! I've been so busy with work lately, but my goal is to learn how to bead just after the Ruckus! In the meantime Jacques lovely pearls are waiting for me!
Newberry, I'm speechless.... If I could find the smiley with the heart eyes, I'd post about a million of them.
lmgarden, wow, that's it? The brooches look so great on that strand, as if they were actually the clasp! I love it. Looks like I need a nice double strand, thanks to you and Purr and your brooch ideas! I love it.
OOOOOps. I just took off my big, blue, baroque akoyas and they broke at a knot. Time to restring. I'm toying with getting a different clasp. I love the orbit clasp, but I wonder if I should just restring with the ball clasp it has currently and spend my pearl money on something at Ruckus. Decisions.
Bweaves... that's hard decision to make! Just saw the old posts of 2014 ruckus. So many things to buy. You will want extra cash on you.
Katalin I think I was eyeing the same lavander/lilac strand. But I already had 1 in a smaller size so I gave it a miss. It looks fabulous on you!
Today I'm in my what I call "collecting enough Tahitians to make a tin cup" look. Top is from Jac and Bottom is from Wen. Both I took it out of a strand I bought. It's so nice to be able to string your own pearls and pick up a couple to use as pendants. Wire wrapping can be improved for sure.
