Ahaha! Red- I think I will leave the tin cup alone for now.
Fridgetnator- thank you! I thought that strand was so unusual. I haven't seen a collection of those colors together in a strand before. Lots of taupe colors, and there's one towards the center that has some lavender.
Battah, that's gorgeous!!! I love keshi and you've made a beautiful combination that looks like it would go well with anything. I bet you get lots of use from it. The coral strand is lovely. After reading the coral thread and seeing Purrahna's coral strand, I bought a few coral beads to make myself a strand. The freshwater strand does look heavy, but it is very pretty. Looks great with the coral!
Sunseeker, Congratulations on your newest grandchild! She's adorable and looks like perfection! Glad everyone is doing well!
BWeaves, that's too bad you lost the other half of the earring. I like JP's idea of wearing mismatched earrings.
PD, lovely white sspearls. I like the two in the middle facing each other.
Jeg, I remember your dangling pearls from Ruckus. They are very colorful and unique. Your new Tahitian strand is nice as well. How do the colors compare to your seaglass strand? The tin cup pearls are sooo colorful! Love them!
JP, what neat colors in your tin cup! The addition of the extender is brilliant too!
I think that's about all this brain remembers. I didn't go back that far though. Catch up is painful.
Amti, the two strands of Tahitians are very different. The pastel Tahitians are very taupe/champagne. The Seaglass necklace is silvery blue/green/gold with high luster. Thanks for asking- I wouldn't have thought to compare them.
My angelskin coral and baroque freshwater double strand that I just posted in the recycled jewelry challenge thread, with an extra pic that actually shows the pearl colors. They're SO hard to photograph!
I finally found a blouse that really compliments (at least I think so) my subtle natural chocolate brown Tahitians. I bought this strand a year ago and unfortunately seldom where it. The baroque Tahitian pendant also shows coppery brown tones. The pearls are 10-12mm. I am also wearing an antique rose gold watch chain doubled over.
