Oh that's a lovely GSS strand ! Love the shapes ( I'm a sucker for drops) and the colour is wonderful. I think with GSS you need to buy what suits your skin tones and not what is perceived to be the most desirable. It's beautiful.

CorvetteGirl- That is an amazing necklace. I saw it on FB the other day and thought it must be for a PGF pearl lover !! Absolutely spectacular.

Thanks Katbran! She was a little shocked by the size but I told her she'd get used to them fast! :D

By the way, the pearls are from Australia! :)

Wow, she’s got beautiful skin and that Golden is fabulous on her! Great find, spot on with the shade, I don’t know how you do it.

You made me look again, I think the size is good. The graduation of the necklace is graceful, I think it looks terrific altogether.

What a beautiful strand! I love the color with her skin tone. I agree with Katbran that you choose the color GSS that suits your skin tone the best. I find the light & medium tones work for me. I'm sure your daughter is thrilled!!

Thanks Katbran. Sheri did a spectacular job. He's perfect in every way!

Today I'm wearing my new silver tahitian strand from Cees, my tahitian keshistrand from Druzydesign with my big tahitian enhancer from Pearlsociety and my green and pink tahitian studs from Pearlescence.

Beautiful, Charlotta!! I just love that keshi strand with the pendant!!! I love the combination of the mixed keshi with the Silver T's.

Very nice Charlotta, so lustrous! I like the keshi strand with the enhancer in particular.

It's a nice sunny day and I got a few shots of my daughter's new GSS. In the outdoors shot she has her back to the sun (the shadows were too harsh facing the sun) and the other shows the pearls in the white box lid, indoors.
Oops! I see reflections of my red shirt! :p

It's a tad longer than 18" as the silk is stretched in a few places, from hanging on the display bust. She doesn't want me to restring the pearls just yet. When the time comes I'll use gold Serafil from Pattye -- maybe the larger size, depending on how large the drill holes are.

It's been way too hot, humid and rainy here to wear pearls, so I've enjoyed seeing everyone elses pearls. I did crave some pearls the other day, and wore some keshi from Kojima, with baroque akoyas and Hanadama earrings from PP. Pearls didn't really go with the doggy T-shirt but I didn't care.

I know what you mean about too hot for pearls, though. Fortunately today is cooler than it's been, and dry, and there's a nice breeze. We opened the doors and windows and turned off the AC.

Pearl Dreams you picked out a gorgeous strand for your daughter. So glad she appreciates it. Thanks for posting about the gem show--it's about under an hour and a half from my home. I'll put it on the calendar for next year. It's always a treat to find nice pearls when you least expect it. From Australia, no less! It is huge! Hope she wears it in good health.

BWeaves- I think your pearls go great with the doggy T shirt. They look nice together.

Ok, Ladies....He's here!!! Sheri & I have been collaborating on this project since last year. It's been a long wait but well worth it! Took my breath away when I opened the package. I cannot sing Sheri's praises enough!! This is an amazing statement piece & could not have come to fruition without her talent & amazing gift of design. Thank you, Sheri! You have outdone yourself with this one!!!

I've taken a couple of pics indoors & outside in shaded light. I will be taking more pics later.

86C-- that is an amazing work of art-- I think Sherri should enter it in one of the design competitions. It is a stunning statement piece that takes a bold woman to wear, and you are just the gal to do it. Congratulations- it is truly beautiful! Stunning piece.

Thanks 2thdktr! I read that to her just now and she said, "I'm going to go and put them on!" :)

Listen: you are even closer to the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival which is also this weekend. Tomorrow sounds like perfect weather for it.
