Thank you Charlotta, 2thdktr, 86C and BWeaves!

That looks like a fun strand to put together, Charlotta!

I taught an art lesson in my friend’s classroom today. A little risky wearing pearls in a room full of kindergartners armed with paint. :eek: I took them off when the paint came out. I wear Tahitians a lot, but I don’t take as many photos of them. I can’t take a snapshot of them like I can with my other pearls because they are finicky about the light.

Multicolor Tahitians. Shorter rope is from POJ, longer rope is from an Intergem Show.

Gorgeous JEG! But then, I covet your entire pearl stash.

My dining room and foyer and garage are finally done after the pipe leak. They look like new. Unfortunately, they don't look like PEARLS, like I wanted to spend that money on, but that's OK. Now I just need a couple of strong men to move my dining room furniture out of the library and back into the dining room. I've bribed my brother with food, but he can't make it until next week.

So pearls. Yesterday I wore Mom's Lapis necklace with Freshadama pearls.

Today I wore my mixed tin-cup with an ombre' Tahitian keshi drop necklace, and blue drop earrings, all from Kojima.

BW, I so love you're Mom's Lapis necklace, especially after you replaced the original pearls with the larger Freshadamas. And your Kokima mixed tin cups....Oooooo La La!!

Thank you!!! I like the Lapis necklace so much better with the Freshadamas, too. I think Mom would have approved.

jeg—gorgeous Tahitians! They look utterly splendid, and you managed to capture the colours.
BWeaves—those tincups, especially! "Be still my foolish heart!" ;) Plus your love of pearls looks like it's genetic; sweet picture. :cool:

Thank you 86C, BWeaves and CricketBug!

It’ll feel so good to get your house all back together, BWeaves. What a lovely picture of you and your mom. She looks so elegant! Love your ruffly bottoms, too!

Thank you Bweaves, 86Corvettegirl, Jeg. It is a fun necklace. Maybe not the most pretty one I own but it's fun to compare the pearls chape,color and luster. You twist it a bit and it's completely different. I can look on it for a long time and still find something new. Some pearls have memories from when I first started to collect pearls.
Very pretty tahitians Jeg.
Your Kojima tincups are really special Bweaves and a great photo on you and your mother.

Gorgeous pearls ladies!

BWeaves, that photo of you and your mother brought a tear to my eye. To those of us who have lost our mothers, it is these precious memories that keep our hearts strong. How lovely your mother was, and how fortunate you are to have inherited her love of pearls! And side note, I'm so glad you're back to "like new" condition after the leak!

2thdktr - Thank you very much... I'm loving the subtle colours!

jeg- I can't believe you wore those to Kindy class ! You are a brave woman .. with your gorgeous pearls and clothes..I think a HazMat suit was needed.

BWeaves - what a wonderful wonderful photo of your mum and little Weaver ! JP is right - the memories give us strength.
And I'm glad you have the work finished on your house - a painful experience. But its all new and gorgeous so enjoy !
The Lapis necklace - the pearls really add a nice spark... lifts the necklace up and makes it sing. And your tin cup..always a fav !

Thanks Charlotta and Katbran! Katbran, I know, it was a bit of a risk, but fortunately there weren’t any splashes.

BWeaves, your whites always look so crisp and fresh, and that little h piece is gorgeous.

I bought temp strands of these freshwater pearls a long time ago and made several pieces with them. They were pre-ripple pearls and some vendors called them “textured” pearls. I had almost forgotten about these necklaces, but rediscovered them when I was going through one of my jewelry boxes.

Bubbly cascade necklace from Kojima, worn with a rope of “textured” pearls. Also wearing keshi studs. (I usually have studs or some sort of earrings on but rarely photograph them)

Textured pearls knotted with a leather cord.

The little h emeralds looks great with that dress/top Bweaves, and with the emerald tincup as well. All shades green.
Jeg nicd pre ripples projects. Isn't it fun to find things in your own stash that you forgot about?

Fantastic, Jeg!! It's nice to find treasures inside your jewelry box. What's the mm size of these & can you post a close up pic of the texture, please?
