Thank you Bweaves, 86Corvettegirl and Jeg. 86Corvettegirl I always exchange my earringbackings to sturdy silikon ones on bigger studs so that they sit nice and secure on my ears.
Gorgeous earrings Pearl Dreams, I have bought many pendant, earrings and loose pearls from Pearlsociety and I have never been disapointed.
That pendant is beautiful Jeg.
Jeg, you look wonderful in Pearls & Pink! Those earrings are fantastic with that pink pendant & rice pearl necklace.
BW, you look fabulous in your pearls, even in the summer heat. I know what you mean about the heat & humidity. Today, I could only manage Tahitian shoulder dusters, a la Purranha, when we went out for sushi tonight.
Thank you, Charlotta. I got the idea from Purranha. She made a silver pair with WSS & a gold pair with Akoya. I made my silver pair with silvery Tahitians & my gold pair with GSS. They're very comfortable to wear.
Thanks so much, Andrew, Charlotta, PearlDreams. 2thdktr and 85C!!
I love those long shoulder dusters, 86C! I was looking at some Hawaiian charms thinking they would make fun earrings, but couldn’t decide which ones to use. Seeing yours makes me want some now! Maybe I’ll pick some up on my next trip.
So many lovely additions to this thread. Pearldreams your golden SS earrings are a perfect match to your gorgeous strand. I love the shapes and even golden color of all of them.
Jeg- Your earrings are so lovely paired with your Biwa strand. I love how the pinks coordinate for your perfect look.
86Corvettegirl- Your Tahitian shoulder duster earrings are so beautiful. I hope your dinner was wonderful. Sushi sounds yummy.
Here is my addition to this thread. I reworked some strands into a double strand necklace with vintage clasp. Grey and blue Akoyas with Tahitians. Not my best work as I had to lengthen the longest strand. I used some bead caps to hide the knots.
I've been watching Serena Williams's clothing line since it began last year, and finally decided to pick up a couple of pieces to wear while watching the US Open. The Serena Limited Edition Statue of Liberty Tank and the Metro Satin Lounge Pant in Pink.
Pearls from Kojima purchased during the Pearls by the Bay event last month.
Gemandpearlover, I love both the length and rearrangement of your pearls! Well done!
Red, great choices! I haven’t seen Serena Williams line, but that’s a fun outfit you found. Love that Kojima piece. So many interesting components. I really love the pieces she made with those vintage filigree beads.
So, there’s a story behind this necklace... There was a free gift involved in one of the stores I shopped at. The sales person brought out four large baggies full of jewelry wrapped in little plastic bundles. It was reminiscent of going through the treasure chest at the doctor’s office. I was about to pass since I don’t know any four year old girls to play dress up in rainbow rhinestones, when I spotted these mother of pearl discs. It was a pendant attached to a beaded chain. I actually like the look and the price was right. There are two mother of pearl discs in the pendant.
Layered with a medley wrap from Kojima, and the new bright green T ring from Hawaii. (Te Hotu Mana)
The wayward pearls from Cees were finally delivered today. Instituting a trace on them seemed to do the trick and I even got a call from my local post office this morning saying they were on the truck and heading my way. First, Cees glamour shot.
Nest, my not as glamorous but still gorgeous shot, and the finished product. I knotted them in Beader’s Secret Teal. I wish I had good light for photographing pearls, but the light is bad in every single room. I can see the colors, but the camera can’t. I laid out all my Tahitian earrings next to the necklace and was shocked to see the different colors in my earrings which all look exactly the same color green in my jewelry drawer. I had no idea.
