Thanks, PD. I wanted to give credit where credit was due, but I could not remember who I stole the idea from.

Red: We enjoy your pearls, too.

Oh I know BWeaves, that's why I posted it. :)

battah, I'm sure most people think my GSS pearls are just beads! I think most don't even know there is such a thing as golden south sea pearls.

This is genius, BW! I remember reading about this idea a while ago and now use pill boxes myself. Perfect travel solution!

I was using those pill boxes too, after BAS suggested it ... thanks, BAS :) After having trouble opening one box AND having the lids pop open in travel (admittedly inexpensive boxes from the drugstore) I found some similar boxes at Wast Marine (fishing, boat tackle/gear store). Those are much sturdier, have removable, adjustable dividers and overlocking latches ... NO possibility of those coming open by accident! Sometimes I can't even open them lol, but that's my hands, not the boxes. I'm out camping with the grandson or I'd take a photo. Tackle stores are a crafter's secret source :)

I'm not sure I would use this particular pill box for traveling. Too bulky and the earrings would rattle around. I like rolling up my jewelry in that rubber matting stuff. Nothing moves.

Cathy, I love using tackle boxes for jewelry and for makeup! Well, not so much anymore with makeup, but when I used to play around with color a lot, I loved tackle boxes for keeping everything organized.

BWeaves makes a good point ... for travel, line the boxes with little pieces of soft cloth etc to prevent pearls rolling around and getting scratched.

Sorry I missed your comments! Red and PD, you're absolutely right. I've noticed that people's eyes are drawn to nice pearls whether they recognize what they are or not. They do see that they're beautiful!

Kind of a crappy taken-too-fast picture, but here is my new-just-arrived-today Kamoka mana necklace (with a sweet 12.7mm pearl that Josh picked out for me :D) along with a tahitian keshi necklace from Care Ehret that I got a couple of years ago. The earrings are 10mm silvery white SSP I bought from a lovely person over on DB last year.

Ooooo, very nice. I like the combination and contrast of the different pearls.

I was feeling very pearly white the other day. Natural white Hanadama rope from PP worn with Nana's necklace (where I replaced the pearls with Freshadamas but kept the akoya clasp). New Hanadama studs from PP at Ruckus 2017. Mom's freshie bracelet and akoya ring.

Oooh, a hanadama rope! beautiful, BWeaves! Quick one: was it assessed/sold as a rope, or is it 2 hanadama strands restrung?

I ordered it from PP as a rope. They had to get the 36" rope special, because two 18" strands would not have matched exactly.

Cute combo, enkeli.
BWeaves, you look fabulous with all those shiny white hanadamas.
