Red - Such beautiful colours in your Riki strand ! ( well in all of them really ) They always seem to have such depth and richness in their colouring. You were fortunate to snap it up and improve on it !

Morella - great layering ! Looks wonderful !

aerinha - Oh your rope is gorgeous, what a good idea ! How long and what colour thread did you use ?

Katbran I used Beaders Secret in sky. It seems to fluctuate color like the pearls, sometimes grayish sometimes blue. They were two 18 inch necklaces so I cut the thread at 150 inches or 4 times the expected length of the finished necklace plus 6 inches extra. I did have some extra when done unlike when I strung my GSSP strand so I think I should have based it on 16 or 17 inches - the unstrung length of the pearls.

Wore my green Tahitians along with my Tanzanite, diamond, Tahitian earrings tonight to hubby's company Christmas party. He's already using his Christmas present (new garage) so I figured fair was fair.

Decked out for my brother-in-law's Christmas concert last night. He is the music director at a large local church. Wearing my Golden South Sea harvest strand from the 2017 PP ruckus, Golden SS drop earrings from pearls picked during the 2018 ruckus, and my Paula Crevoshay brooch/pendant which has a New Zealand Paua pearl.

86 Corvette- gorgeous green T's. You looked beautiful.

Red, beautiful way to layer the Harvest strand with the gorgeous pendant. Those harvest strands are hard to layer as they are so big, so I love the simplicity of your layers.

Thank you, everyone. It's hard to capture the color but I really love this strand. The pearls on the earrings are a perfect match, too. They're a little smaller than most of my T's but the color & luster make up for it.

Red: You look great. The New Zealand Paua pearl is very Renaissance looking.

Thanks, Lisa c. I forgot to have the camera in landscape position when I took the pic.

Tonight, I wore my multi color T's out to dinner.
