That’s a nice combination BWeaves, I especially like that one half of your shirt/dress has fabric cut on the bias. It's a nice touch. Your mothers jewelry are always nice to see, so much variety. She must have been an interesting person.
I don't usually post what I wear, but it's a slow day at work.
Here are 9-10mm metallic freshwater drops from PP. I think I picked these up during a mother's day sale. The picture of these on is not great, but this is an "in action" thread so I felt like it needed to be included.
I recently made a purchase of Vietnamese Akoyas from Cees- 2.5-3mm and put together this strand with silver metallic seed pearls. I really like that I can double it up and also wear as one long strand! Really stunning pearls that I can wear to work.
I just got a small lot of little colorful V. akoyas from Cees too; but they're intransit. 8mm, your pearls are lovely, and make a great "tiny" chain! Thanks for catching the first image, Lisa C Let's see if I can "right" the other, although my internet is slow tonight too ... here goes:
Hi Cathykeshi! Thank you so much! I purchased 125 Akoya pearls and if I only used the Vietnamese Akoyas, my necklace would be about 19” length. But with the metallic silver beads the length of this necklace is 42”. If I purchased 250-300 pearls, this necklace would have really cost $$$! But I am very happy on how this turned out. Maybe I will save up for larger Vietnamese pearls -5mm to 6 mm for a future purchase!
I’m teying to catch up with everybody's beautiful pearls! I had cataract surgery and my vision was wonky during the process, making it difficult to spend time online. Then, I had trouble accessing Pearl-Guide. Now, my vision is the best it has been in 40 years and, as a bonus, I’m now seeing overtones on my pearls that I didn’t see before!
