You and your goldens look ready for festive holidays, Red! Love how the goldens play strongly with bold colors. X
So delighted to hear you are recovering well ... takes hard work and determination.

I've had two total knee replacements 3 months apart . I know how really hard it is ... but like you I've had a great result. Keep up the physio and all will be well. I'm so glad that it's been a success for you ! And your pearls look fabulous. I do love the little green top on your earrings.. it's just the right amount of colour !

Beautiful earrings 86Corvettegirl and I love the settings on the golden earrings Red, the strand is beautiful to.
So I have been busy creating stuff.

I had some south sea pearls that I didn't like as a strand on me, to big for me so I made a lariat, a tincup and a long rope with them.

I also had some smaller tahitian drop pearls that I made into a tincup

The smaller drop tahitians are really colorful and small when I compare them with my other tahitian drops.

Thank you Bweaves. I just may have bought a pair of mismatched studs from OceansCove on Etsy because I liked your studs so much...and a pair of aubergine ones...

Red- so glad you are recovering and staying motivated. Looks like you are doing it in style, too! So pretty!

Charlotta- you have been busy! I especially love the colors and funky shapes on your tin cup.

Red -- glad to hear you are doing well, with an excellent surgeon. And I'm not at all surprised. If you pick your surgeon with the same care as your pearls....!

Thank you! You'll love wearing the mismatched studs. They'll go with everything!

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone. Indeed, BAS, I chose the guy my physical therapist says always has great outcomes. They take a detailed MRI of my entire leg, and perform a virtual operation, and design the replacement parts just for me. In the past it was either small, medium or large knee parts, so much more hit and miss.

I pulled out my pipi pearls from PP today, along with my octo-mermaid from Sheri. Makes me happy.

It's been cold, wet, & cloudy for the past couple of days so I've been wearing this combo to replace the sunshine. Golden SS strand I got from David Norman, Kojima golden orb waterfall & a strand of golden akoya I've had for years but really didn't wear very much.

CorvetteGirl, if that doesn't bring out the sunshine, I wonder if anything will! That certainly brightened my day!

Red, happy and quick recovery! Glad you got that much needed knee replacement. It's going to make a huge difference on your activity level soon, if not already!

Hi Ladies! I'm super behind on PG due to Thanksgiving festivities. Loved everyone's combo here. It's so interesting and lovely to see more and more creative layerings here! :)

Red, so glad you're recovering well from the knee replacement - I do generally hear that recovery is tough but people are super happy with the results and mobility afterwards!

I have been waiting for my second pair of Heather Benjamin earrings to get here & they arrived today. I could not decide which pair I liked the best but I bought her large horn earrings like the ones BN has. The ones with the beetle wings kept haunting me so I wound up buying them too. Here they are....they're so beautiful. (a little hard to capture the colors in the small horns.) And they look really edgy with the green Tahitian necklace hubby bought for me but says I have to wait til Christmas before I can wear it.

86Corvettegirl I'm so glad you got the baby beetle wing & horn earrings! I tried it on in person and loved it. I only didn't grab it since my ear piercings are not done well and thus work better with french wire than post. I'm so glad to see that piece staying in the PG family - please post ear shots and share pics often!

Ok...this is for BWeaves & Purranha....You ask for pics so here they are. They'll probably show up sideways because I forgot to take the pics horizontally with my phone. Please forgive the hair & no makeup. I'm cooking chicken & dumplings for the hubby; it's his favorite Southern comfort food.
Purranha, I have somewhat wonky piercings to but there is so much movement with the earrings, I don't think it's noticeable.

And here's another sideways pic of the Tanzanite & green pearl earrings David had to go with the necklace.

Charlotta- love all the workmanship and repurposing. I especially like the one pearl you have as a dangle from your clasp- very polished craftmanship.

86C- Really like the beetle wings and tanzanite earrings- great coordination with the green T's.
