Our snow is mostly gone, but it's in the 30s F in the mornings, so winter clothes are still in order. This OSKA shirt Retuva in Peat needs added interest at the neck, so I pulled out my pistachio Akoya station necklace wire wrapped in 14kt white gold from PP. I decided to add my new 8-8.4mm Sea of Cortez studs. While the pearls don't match, the body colors are similar and the SoC have fantastic blue overtones which I think give them a lot of life on the ear.
Congratulations on this magnificent strand, jeg. I went back and looked at the pictures of the select Kasumi strands from each year's harvest from recent years, and this one is my favorite by far. So beautiful and it looks great on you.
JEG: Your new Kasumi pearls are stunning! And so long, too. The colors, the surface shine. Beautiful. I agree, Red, this is my favorite Kasumi strand I've ever seen. Jeg: How big are they? How long is the necklace?
Yesterday, I wore my Pacific Pearls ripples, with my Kojima keshi strands and earrings. Faux Kasumi. Handwoven by me, silk and wool top.
Red, that is a beautiful combination of colors and weight- just right.
Jeg, wow, what an amazing strand of Japanese Kasumi pearls. They look terrific on you.
BWeaves, the woven top is gorgeous on its own, but the pearls together with the top bring out the richest colors.
