Thanks so much, Red, Gemandpearlover and Katbran! I’ve been having fun wearing all the goodies from Pearls By The Bay. Wearing and looking at pearls cheers me up this time of year. Fall has always been my least favorite season.
Wow, JEG. I love your new purchases. Well, I love the old ones, too. I'm still kicking myself that I wasn't fast on the draw for that Sea Glass necklace.
Today I wore some more Kojima pearls, plus my Lily Pad ring, and Mom's akoya ring. Long ombre' freshwater keshi necklace worn double, with a keshi tin-cup and matching earrings. Kasumi pendant. The lighting is very blah. The pearls are much pinker and greener than the photo shows. I like the earrings. They are very lightweight for their size.
Thank you, 86C and BWeaves! I’m so glad you weren’t fast on that one, BWeaves! I don’t know how long it was in my email, but I tried to buy it after seeing it. One of my credit cards denies every Kojima purchase I make, and I was on the phone for 20 minutes trying to get the transaction cleared. Nowadays, it just sends me a text so it’s much quicker, but it still gets initially denied every time. Even when I put the company name into my travel alerts like for Pearls By The Bay. I don’t get it because there isn’t the same reaction to all the other companies.
Love your Kojima pieces, too! That’s a great keshi strand.
I can imagine the colour BWeaves ... I'm trying to photograph a pink/raspberry/lavender strand and some photos look blah and others the colour pops. I find the lavenders the hardest to get right in a photo .
You look beautiful Bweaves, I agree the seaglass strand is amazing. I did see it on instagram, but when I checked it was long gone.
It's good that you have your pearls to cheer you up Jeg. I have always loved fall with the pretty leaves, the crisp mornings and apples in the garden. I even like the wind (unless it makes branches fall on my car, some many tall trees both at home and at the summercabin). I am allergic in the summer and usually better in the fall, maybe that’s why I prefer the fall. My allergies have been better these last few years since I found some great doctors and are properly medicated for the summer. Not-husband is like you Jeg, he gets gloomy with even the thought of fall and the dark winters. Where we live there is about 5-6 hours of daylight in december.
Actually, it's funny, but I was late on the draw for my keshi tin-cup, too. It was sold by the time I asked Sarah if she could swap out the hook clasp for an orbit clasp. Sarah made me another necklace and her wire wrapper accidentally made my necklace longer than the one on the website. I said to leave it longer as I didn't have anything that length, and then she worked with me on the matching earrings. I love the set.
