Jeg!!! I dragged Walter up off his sofa to look at that strand ... you can imagine how that went LOL!!! It was my pick too, and I don't need it, so am thrilled for you and delighted I'll get to see it in person .
Thanks so much, BWeaves, Gemandpearlover and CathyKeshi! Ahahaha, Cathy, the better to see with those new eyes of his! I’m sure he was also thrilled to see the “sold” label. I really didn’t need it either. But I love it!
Gemandpearlover, whoa, both fun and huge! And interesting shapes!
I haven't posted in a bit, so here's a few from this week. It's been close to 90F. You know it's Florida in the winter when you tell you co-irkers you need to step outside to warm up because the air conditioning is blowing on you.
New Coral Atoll strand from Kamoka.
I restrung my baroque blue akoyas from PP last night on aqua Beader's Secret. My knots had come loose and it needed restringing. I shortened it to 17" because I really like that length after I saw Baby Nurse with a strand that length.
Worn with my mixed tin-cup and the Everything Bagel rope, and blue drops on my own hoops, all from Kojima.
I do like a long rope.
Today I wore Tahitians. Opal and Tahitian drop earrings and long Tahitian tin-cup from Kojima. TNT necklace (Tahitians and tourmalines) from Ocean's Cove. And La Perlagrina pendant from Kamoka.
Did I mention I love a long rope?
And tomorrow I'll wear my new All-Josh Harvest 2019 strand.
Bad bathroom lighting. I want to see this strand in daylight.
The older I get, the more I seem to be drawn to mismatched pearl strands. When the pearls aren't matched, I feel like they look more real to me. When I see strands that are absolutely perfectly matched, I have to really look to see if they are faux or real. But there really is an art to putting together a mismatched strand so it looks balanced and, well, put together. If you know what I mean and I think you do.
BWeaves, you look stunning, especially in that grey linen dress with those beautiful Tahitian mixes ... so unique and fascinating. You are right, 17" looks great on you too. But the winner for me is Coral Atoll ... GORGEOUS!!! Enjoy
I am captivated by your two new Kamoka strands. Gorgeous.
The Josh strand is so unique and pretty. Definitely a head turner.
I must admit I have been infatuated by the Coral Atoll strand, since they first sent out an email when it appeared on the Kamoka website. I always kept going back to see it, however never pulled the trigger, a bit hesitant. Now I am green with envy as that strand is amazing !! Truly incredible ...I am in love with it. You are one lucky lady
I always thought I didn't like Tahitians UNTIL I joined Pearl Guide. I had no idea they came in so many colors and shapes and sizes. I have ordered and returned several strands until I found the sorts of colors and shapes I liked. Now I have shiny round pastels, and midrange baroques, and colorful circled ones, and gorgeous drops. Each strand and each pearl is unique, and they don't come to life until you put them next to your skin.
Beautiful lighting today! I wore my long Tahitian tin-cup from Kojima (and I'm pretty sure some of the Tahitians are from Kamoka), and my new All-Josh 2019 Harvest strand and black and white studs from Kamoka, and my Sea of Cortez ring from Douglas in the PP rose gold setting. My phone still isn't capturing the colors and I can't quite manipulate the photos to show the colors as I see them. The ring in particular is an intense teal blue with pink halos. And the black pearl stud is dark purple and the light one is pale blue.
