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)
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?
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.
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.
Charlotta- I love your new additions to this thread. Your tiny metallic pearls with a Tahitian enhancer look fabulous paired with your metallic ripples. I think the combination is beyond stunning.
Well the museum was fun and we are now members. We put ourselves down on the volunteer list. Hubby for painting and me for gardening. Although hubby did give me a dirty look for putting his name on the list. Lol.
