No photos I'm afraid, it's been hectic the past 3 days. We had to make 3 separate trips to NY.

Friday we drove to our daughter's college to attend the Honors Convocation, at which awards are given; I wore my golden SS pearls.

Saturday we got up very early to take the train into NYC to attend her graduation. I wore my white SSP. The college rents a facility each year for the undergraduate and graduate ceremonies; it gets around the problem of what to do if it rains. It was cold, raw and rainy all day-- we were glad to be indoors.

Today we drive back to the college and moved her out of her dorm for the final time-- no pearls today!

I am finally sitting down. Feels good! :D

What a busy weekend, Pearl Dreams! Congratulations to you and your daughter. You must be thrilled and very proud.

These were some of the loose strands I brought back from my trip to Kojima. I knotted the “challenged” baroque akoyas into a short strand, and the tiny silvery blue freshwater strand, strung longer, with an Edison pendant from PP hanging from it.

Thank you jeg...very proud mama here. I have passed along your congratulations to her and she says thanks too. :)

She and I both have colds now, ugh. I made a big pot of chicken soup today.

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Today I'm knocking around in the baroque akoyas that I got from PP 3 years ago. They are 9.5-10.0mm. I really like this size for short pearl necklaces.

I do love baroque akoyas! I wore mine the other day at work and forgot to post here.

8.5-9mm baroque akoyas from PP and 7-8mm pink/silver metallic freshwater pearls also from PP. I'm also wearing some blossom collection freshadama earrings in yellow gold with 5.5mm Vietnamese golden akoyas in my second piercing, both from PP (man was I a walking advertisement for them that day!).

I also included a picture of the golden akoyas with a pair of pinked hanadama studs on the day I got the goldens. They are small but mighty for sure!

That's a lovely spring look, lary007! I was SOOOO tempted by those little golden V. Akoya earrings but they'd get lost on me, sigh ...
