Thank you, BWeaves, Charlotta, & Battah! I love these ombré strands so much & I wear them often. My doctor liked them, too, & wants to get a strand for his wife. I told him where I got mine from & also passed along Cees info & some sites to check.
Here's a combination I haven't tried before. Aunt Love's Blue Lagoon necklace with my baroque akoya necklace and Hanadama studs from PP. The necklaces don't match at all, but they nest perfectly. The studs look great with the baroque akoyas. They're a good match.
Corvette Girl, love those ombré strands together - seriously glamorous!
Battah, that torsade is lovely and you look amazing.
BWeaves, yes, that combo looks terrific. I know that all this combining and layering has changed my stodgy mindset about what looks good.
Lovely! And BWeaves, that stack is great! I recently restrung my mother's 30" blue lagoons into a double strand with a clasp I harvested from an eBay purchase. It's actually a 3 strand clasp, so I'm looking for a third one to add in between the two outer strands. My mind keeps coming back to a contrasting center...maybe I'll try it with smaller pearl (3-4mm) strand in the center!
SSSOOOOOO, I just returned from Taipei and had a chance to visit my favorite Taiwanese designer (clothing). I've had terrible luck hunting down good linen pieces so I gave up on that and went with organza silk tulle and lace instead! It is my new current favorite top! I think they go quite well with pearls, too.
