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?

Gemandpearlover, that can be both a casual- -and- -elegant look!

86C your whites look so pretty with that periwinkle color! I am attaching a pic of some loose pearls from the strands that best represent the texture. The rope doesn’t have the luster of these even though they came from the same strands. Just a guess, but I think the mm size is around 10-11mm.

BWeaves I love your souffle necklace- so fresh.
Jeg- the luster on those loose pearls are gorgeous. I love the metallic slightly pinkish white (on my monitor) color.

Here is what I am wearing today. Tahitians and Edisons. Hubby and I are going to the historical museum in town. It is only open one day a month and I have never been there yet.

Today I'm wearing my tiny 3-4mm lavender rose off-round freshwater pearls from Pearllunar, that I restrung with Beaders secret in rose today, with a big tahitian enhancer from Pearlsociety and my ginormous 11-15mm ripples from Kongspearl and my pink metallic drops from Pearllunar.

I did restring the ripples in Beaders secret in rose this week as well.

The ripples are very big for me. I usually prefer pearls under 11mm for strands.
