Hmm, think you might have meant that comment for Charlotta rather than me, BWeaves - haven’t taken the stringing plunge yet, though it is looking more and more like a matter of time. I was lying awake last night looking at loose pearls and figuring out the financial feasibility of creating a few exact necklaces I picture in my head....

On the subject of *exact* pieces, here are the earrings I wore today. I searched long and far for a pair which looked Exactly So: round white-to-cream pearls, round diamond, ‘short’ sort of lever back. I ended up with two other pairs I like a lot and wear often, but which still didn’t quite satisfy, and once engaged in and lost a fierce bidding war on EBay for an antique pair which were Just So before I found these: 8mm Akoyas on 14k leverbacks. There was a sale. I pounced. And now, since early this year, I’ve had my ideal pearl earrings.

Thanks so much, Bcm, 2thdktr, BWeaves and Bonsava!

Bonsava, I’m glad you found exactly what you were looking for. They are very pretty!

Keeping it light today with a Tahitian drop pendant, and a necklace of SS golds and whites, blue baroque Akoya and Akoya keshi. All from Kojima.

Bonsava - isn't it wonderful to get exactly what you've been imagining! They look beautiful and very comfortable to wear.

Jeg - the "baby bagel" is magnificent! It works wonderfully with that tahitian drop.

Lary, it is! And yes, those are very comfortable to wear. There's substantial enough you know they're there, but not so heavy that they pull on the ear or make it 'tired'.

Jeg, love the way those golds are scattered through that necklace, and the delicate hues of the Tahitian drop!

Hey everyone! Way too much beauty to catch up and comment on, so I'll just say that you all continue to have exquisite taste :)

jeg, I just adore that last strand you shared! You could wear it with anything, I think, and the luster is just to die for <3

Bonsava, I love the earrings!

Jeg, Baby Bagel is superb!! Your SS golden, white, & blue Akoya is fantastic. I've been looking for a similar rope but haven't found one yet. I may have to have one made.

I am so loving all these wonderful pearls everyone is sharing

This necklace is one of my favorites for summer. Pearl Paradise created this 42" tin cup from a circled baroque WSS strand I bought from them last year. I love all the fun shapes on these pearls.

Beautiful necklace Kay! I love the 'dollop of cream' look of some baroque WSS, and it looks so light for summer.

I love this necklace!!!! Please bring it with you next week ;)

I concur, Jeg. I really want to see the Kojima necklace of SS golds and whites, blue baroque Akoya and Akoya keshi in person. I am really loving pieces with keshi lately. (Time to shop, lol.)

Newberry and Kay, I will put it on my list! I am also bringing the long strand I acquired on my trip to Kojima in May. It has the Akoya keshi, too, but different coloring- Tahitians and pink freshwater in between. Looking forward to seeing your pearls, and your shopping! :eek:

So many beautiful pieces. I love them all.

A couple days ago I wore my reborn pearls and Mom's circle pin on a handwoven blouse.

And today I wore my Black & White Tahitian studs from Kamoka. A Tahitian ombre' tincup from Kojima. And pistachio akoyas from Pearl Paradise.

That was a single pistachio strand at PP at Ruckus. I'm still kicking myself that I didn't buy the blue one that was in the same bag, but I already had so many blues. It was definitely a find. I didn't think I liked green pearls and then I fell in love.

Lovely pearls everone.
2014 or 2015, don't quit remember, I bought a tahitian drop strand that I love from PP, during one of their sales. So many beautiful colors. Never found pearls like this again until recently. Some weeks ago I accidently found pearl just like this at etsy seller Wen Pearls. A lot less than what I payed in 2014/2015. I thought the quality would be a lot less as well. Surprisingly the quality is quite good. Less surface blemish, lots of nice colors. I had to replace one pearl. Over all a really beautiful strand. I knotted it today and renotted my PP strand as well. Changed to 2 identical clasps. They nest perfectly. The new stand is 17inch and my old one 18. No photos on them on today since they all turned out to blurry. The earrings are 2 drop pearls I bought from Druzydesign and wirewrapped.
