Annie: Those T's are gorgeous. That top ring has amazing color and luster. And the necklace has a beautiful balance of shapes and colors.

Katbran: Yes, hahah. It's down to 80F this week. Definitely cooling off. It does make it easier to layer up the pearls, since they are warm to wear. I'm always amazed at how cold my jade bracelet is to wear. If I ever find jade beads in my budget, I bet they'll be very cool on my neck.

And now for something completely different. Native American Fetish strand. Some of the fetishes are carved from shell, but interestingly enough, the backside of the shell is the right side. At least when I wear the necklace, the shell fetishes always flip so the mother of pearl side is towards my body. In the top photo, the top left fetish is on the wrong side, and on the bottom photo, I've flipped it so it's pearl side up. I left the others pearl side up for the photo, although the bottom right one is wrong side up.

The heishi beads (brown seed beads) are dark penshell, I think. Top left fetish flipped to the pearl side.

It used to bother me that the shell fetishes were always wrong side up, until it finally dawned on me that they are not supposed to look pearly. The wrong side IS the right side, because it looks more like fur.

I flipped a middle one to the wrong side and the bottom right one to the right side. You can see that bottom right one does not want to sit with the pearl side up.

[QUOTE P.S. I just got an Ann G Linen order in the mail today. JEG, you weren't kidding about the interesting seaming on the back of the garments. Wow! It's still very warm here in Florida, so I can wear linen for another month at least.[/QUOTE]


Glad you are enjoying all your linen BWeaves. Wish I would’ve caught the genteleman’s name in the store. He was such a nice guy and I got the impression he was some sort of CEO or owner or someone important in the company.

Love the colorful creatures on your fetish. A fun piece to wear!

Annie, that is a really great harvest strand. I want to see your’s now, Katbran!

86C, ooooo, countdown to Christmas! What a pretty strand with those splashy earrings. I like today’s pairing, too!

Just knotted my freshwater pearls from Hong Kong so I could wear them today. These were the pearls that I sat in the back room putting together with thousands to choose from. (Preferential treatment thanks to Jeremy;)) I was originally thinking I would use them for different projects, but they have such beautiful luster, I decided to keep them together for now. I made a bracelet extender so it will be more versatile.

Thank you so much Bcm21mk, 86Corvettegirl, BWeaves, ParrotLady, and Red! I had fun playing with these new pearls today. Now I wish I had bought some other colors for more bracelets...

Jeg, those turned out beautifully! Haha, I remember sitting in that little curtained off room for a looong time while we sorted through pearls.

Thanks, BabyNurse! Yes, I remember you saying it was something like sitting in the “Craft Corner” at school. Then I reminisced in my mind about playing with the Lite Brite during activity time! :D Way better playthings, though!

Another business dinner tonight so I wore my Cees Fiji Pearls, along with my GSS strand & Kojima Golden Orb necklace.

Thanks BN & Annie. I would like to get another Fiji strand to wear with this one as well as a darker GSS. I do like how the lighter GSS looks with the Fiji Strand, though.
