Thank you for the kind comments about my watermelon tourmaline earring jackets for my SoC studs that I posted three pages ago.

My recovery from total knee replacement surgery seven weeks ago today is proceeding well. I went into the office for the first time since my operation and decided to wear my new Serena sweater and pants. The fluffy cream sweater was a nice backdrop for my Robert Wan Tahitians purchased from PP several years ago. I pulled out the most colorful pearls for the bracelet. I remember that I had just met CathyKeshi and she was watching me work, so this set has happy memories for me.

I used the last of my SS keshi to make these two pieces. I posted the short tin cup a few days ago, and am now adding the long strand.

Worn with a Biwa tin cup and deep golden SS pendant from PP Ruckus 2018.

Doubled and reversed to add the SS pendant and layered with the tin cup. I went with this look because I pulled my collar up and wrapped my jacket to leave the house.

Ooooohh Red, that strand is to die for! I love multicolored strands.

Excellent use of the keshis, jeg! They are perfection with that biwa tin cup.

I got a pair of baby GSS studs from JerseyPearl today and they are phenomenal. I don't usually go for bigger studs because of the weight on my ears, but I wanted some GSS studs so bad. When she shared the picture of the baby stud pairs (7-8mm) I was sold. Please excuse my weird work bathroom lighting. I was just too excited to share them to wait. I also included a pic of her adorable packaging.

Jeg, gorgeous south sea keshis.

Lary, they look great on you. Can you believe how close in color they are to the gold? Wow! Cute packaging, too.

jeg, all those versions look fabulous. It’s crazy hot here in Pittsburgh, 88* and humid, which should be against the law once the pool closes. The front won’t get here til tomorrow...but even the cold won’t teach me how to layer pearls like you guys do.

Love everyone's new pearls!!!!

It's finally cooled down to 90F where I am! Sorry lisa c. But the humidity has been down to about 70%, so I've been breaking out the pearls!

Sea of Cortez ring. I cannot capture the colors. It's deep teal and hot pink with rose gold.

You look stunning Bweaves, though when I Google convert 30F to C it's still pretty hot. In sweden the news would call it a heatwave or some such...there have been frost in the mornings some days this week in my part of sweden (and I'm not in the northern part with the polar bears and santa...).

I really love those tin cups and rope, BWeaves. Glad to see you’re able to get into your pearls again!

Our weather is turning, too. Still warm enough during the days, but the mornings are cooler.

A baroque freshwater tin cup I made, with the big Tahitian drop pendant with bumpy bail from Kojima. The feather pearl necklaces are also from Kojima Pearl.

Wearing the baroque tin cup again. The Tahitian pendant and Seaglass Tahitian strand are from Kojima Pearl.

Can I ask what you use to attach your pendants to your chains? Is it an orbit clasp? I have been searching Etsy and Amazon for an oval lobster clasp or something similar to use like you do...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks:)
