Pattye, you are right, they do reflect the colors of whatever clothes I wear.

BWeaves, I love seeing your pearls with that jacket!

gorgeous strands everyone! you guys inspire me to use my pearls more often.

still getting used to wearing my strand on a daily basis (not daily - everyday, more like daily - there's no special occasion), for fear of looking too... expensive? fashionista? :p here's my baroque akoyas, which look great even against loud prints. they didn't break the bank but they sure look like they did!

Thanks so much Amti and Pattye!! Amti, the pearl range is approximately 9.5-13.5. The colors are more subtle taupe, olive tones. Pattye- yes, selfies!

PD, those shapes make me smile, too. :eek: BWeaves, love your heirloom pieces, and the memories that go with them. Crazy Missy, beautiful Akoya strand, and it looks perfect with the colorful top.

I surrender to the loveliness ... I can't keep up lol. You all look so wonderful in your pearls!

Pearl Dreams ... those WSS are truly a DREAM ... that's WSS perfection to me :)

CrazyMissy, my baroque akoyas are the same way; they really can stand up to, and go with everything!

Lugana, you know I'm glad to see you back here!!

BWeaves, that handwoven fabic is so gorgeous. We may need a fashion art thread here ... :)

Jeg, such terrific Fiji colors on you!!!

CrazyMissy: Your baroque rope is gorgeous. That's the sort of necklace I wear with everything. I've really warmed up to baroque pearls, because they seem to have an amazing glow.

Today I'm wearing 3 akoya ropes with jeans and a T-shirt. The more casual I dress, the more pearls I layer on. Photos later.

Marianne, pattye, BWeaves, jeg, JerseyPearl, MSC, Pareltje, Katbran, thank you ladies! it was a tough choice, as I basically have lost my personal project (the last pearl/ no more pearls) partner over this job position. But I don't regret it, as we together were going the doubtful direction anyway (wholesale). Thank you! :)

amti, thank you! I would ideally like it as a rope, but couldn't yet find a matching strand to mix it with))

CathyKeshi, thank you! oh I must show you that faceted TH ring - just had it finished last week :)

CrazyMissy, I have a strand of those (from PP? biggest size?) and I wear them like every day... and with other strands as well (baroque ropes etc). So no worries with your pearl choices ;) they look great!

BWeaves, you ROCK the brooches! I cannot express enough how I LOVE your brooches!!

I was wearing my blue tahitian aka "Wilma" necklace, but the sun has set by the time I got home so no decent photos :(

Ropes and brooches!!!

Natural white Hanadama rope from PP. Baroque blue akoyas from PP. My first akoya rope from back in 1982, which I just restrung again. And Mom's ruby swan. Ruby heart earrings. All worn with a tobacco colored T-shirt, jeans and tweed jacket.

Years ago, I never would have mixed these pieces together, because I feel that none of them match. But you've all inspired me that anything goes, and everything goes with everything.

Pearl Guide folks are such inspiration, aren't they, BWeaves? I too would never have mixed pearls like I do now. That look is fabulous; rich in color and textural contrasts ... love it! Especially that ruby swan on that jacket lapel :)

When your mailman delivers LOVE in a box ... :) Kamoka Keshi bracelet, 14K & 18K yellow gold, white/silver/palest blue Kamoka keshi pearls, grown with Love by our dear Celeste & Josh, gold work customized to fit my wrist by our dear Pattye. I'm not always the biggest fan of tin-cup styles, but this ... oh, THIS. The fit is perfect, falling down onto my hand, light as a feather, and like wearing something made of silk. Best of all, the clasp carries just enough weight to keep the bracelet from rolling around, and it's tiny companion keshi mean no pearls banging around on the bottom, at my keyboard and desk. This one is hard to take off :) Love and Hugs to Celeste, Josh and Pattye!

Aw, thank you Jeg. I was done when I saw the photo Celeste posted on FB, Instagram etc. of this bracelet resting on the cup of a yellow daffodil :) I'm so lucky!
