ckrickett - I think your new project is beautiful! I bet the spinels just sparkle in the sunlight!

Thanks everyone regarding the natural pearl. The setting is perfect for this pearl and I wear it a lot!

BAS - The pearl is metallic is some light sources and then kinda "normal" in other light sources. In some of the outside shots you can actually see the clouds in the sky! I am so happy I stumbled on this one!!!

Pkinnew, your ring deserves all the rave reviews! Amazing pearl, LOVE the way the mounting swirls and lifts off the finger, allowing more light to reach the stones. Not usually a fan of diamonds, but beautifully done here, imo.

Ckrickett, clearly your artistic talent transfers to necklace design, great choice of spinels and blue akoya!

Many thanks, All, for sharing your new treasures.

ckrickett, your project turned out well! That strand is fantastic. I love the random placements and the black spinel really makes the blues pop.

Exactly what I think! And the lavender strand as well. Beads really can enhance pearls. :)

ckrickett, both strands are lovely, but that lavendar strand is especially striking!

Have you all seen Lupita Nyong'o Oscar dress tonight, by Calvin Klein ... made from 6,000 pearls!???!

She looked stunningly elegant last year in that pale blue floaty dress, and this is even better. I never watch the awards, but I was searching for something online for work, and drifted past the phrase "6,000 pearls in a dress" and I skidded to a stop! I hope someone better than me can post a photo here for everyone ...

I got an awful shot on my cell phone, not worth posting. It was spectacular, and probably dreadfully heavy. The close-up was breathtaking.

BAS, she is quoted online as saying the dress is suprisingly comfortable ... what else would a gracious lady say :) ?

She didn't mention sitting, Katbran :)))) Although it looked as though the dress smooths out from just above the waist down. Hope there are closeups and more details tomorrow.

Hurray, Marianne!

maybe sitting on pearls that closely seen together is like sitting on one of those chunky-wood-bead mats?
if I were making the dress, I might have an open seam/vent all down the seat, to make two panels. That way you could have an underskirt to sit on, not pearls.
