Aw I don't know where to start, so, I'll say sincere THANK YOU to:
BWeaves, this was the first time I paired the tiny blue V. akoyas with the big baroque white akoyas. I didn't expect they'd nest so well, and I was so pleased ... can't wait to see what you come up with!
Cicadalady, thank you very much; blue and white is the coolest on a hot day, isn't it?
MSC: Hot summer days almost demand blue and white .... thanks :)
Newberry, I owe it all to you, my dear :)
Purranha, so true, we are our own worst fears; thank you for a good reminder. You can see my other 2 blue V. akoya strands in my thread "My Vietnamese Akoya Collection". The first, biggest round-ish strand is in the first photo, coupled with my multi-colored V. akoya strand. Next photo in that thread is my medium sized baroque akoyas Jeremy showed in an online chat; I was shouting, and on the phone to Erin pdq lol. I didn't have a photo of the tiny ones due to a computer meltdown, but captured them in this "blue & white" post. I should put them all together and take another photo. Because 2 of the strands have adjustable extender chains, I can nest them if I fiddle a bit ... sometimes I have enough patience ...

For the record, the "sly grin" and smile had everything to do with 2 dogs and 2 giggling boys in the back seat hiding out from a quick rainshower; it's surprising they didn't get in the photo lol.

In a fit of enthusiasm I put together a little item to use up the tiny natural pearls I have.

I just received a Natural Grey Akoya Necklace from Japan. It is 6.5 x 7 x 18".
I like the color and they sell pretty well. Lots of grey haired ladies . ;>)\
I placed the Tahitian for contrast.

The little vial of pearls is so cute. What size is it? Of course it looks huge on my monitor.

I love the grey pearls, too.

I'm trying to post a photo of BB Aliya's, but I have a sinking suspicion it hasn't worked. I've mentioned I'm inept at this, right?t

Argh. When I open the window to respond to a thread, I select the little picture of the tree that says "Insert Image". I receive 2 options, From Computer and From URL. I select From Computer, and a browse field opens. I select the photo I want to post, but nothing happens. I see the path to the file, but there's no "OK" or anything (like there is in the From URL option). Maybe it's too big? It was originally 270 KB's, but I reduced it to 33.4. Is that still too large? They really are lovely pearls, my self, my photo and my photo-taking skills don't do the strand justice. I guess you'll just have to trust me.

FullSizeR.jpg"Upload" never appears as an option, at least, I don't see it anywhere (ironic that if I could post a photo I could show you the screen I'm seeing). Maybe it's something funky with my work computer, like some prohibition on posting photos, etc, or the good ole' standby of I am really not gadget savy. I'm going to try to edit my post above and try to add it there. Thank you for trying.

Oh, look at that, Upload IS an option! I thought it was just text, not a button. Argh, but Thank You Pearl Dreams.

So, there are the BB from PofJ. My photo skills are about as bad as my computer skills, but they're just beautiful in person. I love them.

And here are the first ones, 8-8.5 18" natural white Hamada from PP. Again, much better in person. Oh, I'm also wearing my wedding pearl studs which were the only pair at jewelers at the time, I'm pretty sure akoya, but that's it. Earrings to match the necklace are on my wish list, but that's where they have to stay for now. The color difference between earrings and necklace is noticeable in person, but only if you're looking for it. It's more noticeable in photo.IMG_0129.jpg

Cathy, that's such an awesome, refreshing look. You'd never know it was summer with those cool colors. Did I mention how much I love V Akoyas? I need some.... stat! I hope someone has some for sale at Ruckus!

Purr, those babies!!! They are adorable and sooo sweet!!! Little dangling octopi! And with V blue Akoyas and GSSP keshi... swwoooon!!!

BritM, you did it!!! Yay!!! The first of thousands of pictures to come! :D Your Hanadamas look beautiful!

Norm, lovely little natural pearls! And the silver akoya are very beautiful! You're the only one in this group that hasn't uploaded a selfie (hint hint). ;)

RARELY do I do this ... but I really liked this combination, so I'm bravely sharing: Nothing better on a hot, busy 4th of July than blue & white linen, accented with white baroque akoyas, baby blue Vietnamese akoyas, and white akoya earrings accented with blue aquamarines ... which you can't see in my bad selfie ... all pearls from Jeremy, Hisano & PP.

Good Grief, You are TOO CUTE! :) I can't wait for my hug!
