2thdktr, thank you. I always end my tincups with a dangling pearls and a o-ring just before the pearl. Then I can make the tincup longer if I want. If I only finished it with the chain it would tangle more.
86Corvettegirl, those earrings are lovely on you and I love your golden combo.

IMG_2388.jpgIt's been a while since I posted my "look"...all pieces are from my personal collection (not for sale) and the coin necklace is from my good friend Samantha at Heavenly Vices. It's a love token made from an 1857 seated liberty silver quarter. The bezel is set with diamonds. And of course the octo/mermaid clasp is from our own dear Sheri.

Wow - between Red's adorable pipis, 86corvette's goldens and super cool horn earrings, and JP's stunning Tahitian look I'm rethinking my pearl wishlist today.

Everyone looks great! I love all the different looks, and I love the copy cats, because it is the pearliest of compliments.

Thanks for the pics, JP. Love how you have broken up that peacock rope with the grey keshi. Wonderful. And the pendant is so personal and unique.

It's getting chilly in Florida.

Yesterday, 70 F, Everything Bagel Rope, Mixed Tin-Cup, Tahitian Keshi Tin-Cup and blue drops, all from Kojima. Handwoven shawl.

Today, it's even colder. 60 F Tomorrow it gets down to the 30s F. Tahitian necklace and earrings from Kojima. The necklace is dark peacock T's, but they mirror whatever I'm wearing, so they look really green today. Mom's ruby swan. SoC ring not shown.

Thanks Red. The rope was my first attempt at a harvest strand. It has all sorts of Tahitians on it from rounds to keshi and everything in-between! Heavenly Vices (aka Samantha Jackson, she's on Instagram as @heavenlyvices) has been getting quite a bit of attention for her love tokens. She recently posted about a NYC series she has with the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. I can't help but wonder about the original "Sarah" for whom the love token was made...but I suppose that's part of the lure of owning antiques. When she posted this one, I just had to have it. My father (deceased) was an avid coin collector so this one just had to be mine.

BWeaves, many apologies up front for my dorky humor...but I'd say you look nice and toasty warm! So that must be an everything toasted with a schmear.

What a wonderful look JerseyPearl, the octostrand is so beautiful. And you look warm and toasty. Today when I woke up it was -10 C (don't know in F, but well below freezing). I only hope that my car will start.
Beautiful looks Bweaves, I especially like the fabric on your blazer(?), the plaid one. Wonderful colors. Of course your pearls are excuisite as always.

Hahaaha! Love it, JP! Today it was 40F and that was the high. I'm wearing layers of wool along with my natural white hanadama rope and studs from PP, my very first akoya rope, and my littleH emerald and souffle' enhancer and tincup.

I've never worn these three necklaces together before, and I like it. It was too cold to take a photo outside because I didn't want to take my coat off, so this is in my office building toilet stall. Classy!

BWeaves, I love love love the colour combination you're wearing there and how you've matched the necklaces.

I am very happy that I finally got my preordered Heather Benjamin carved abalone shell necklace. It is a great match for my new earrings.
Actually Heather's jewellery (especially those gorgeous Impala earrings that introduced me to her work here on the forum, THANK YOU PURR!) has inspired me to get my own golden-chained "dynamic" earrings made. Please excuse the messy hair.

Morella-- That is gorgeous simplicity at it's best.

BWeaves-- the combos are all great, but the combination layering on your plum turtleneck is gorgeous.


JP-- your coin is precious and the layering is so tasteful. I love metals and gems and pearls together. That coin is a find.
