Wearing my newest SS rope from Kojima, with earrings from Hawaii. Earrings are made of tiny cascading pearls with peridot and pink chalcedony. There are a couple pearls on the white rope that have silver blue banding.

86Corvettegirl, I hope that the surgery goes well and that you recover fast.
That greenish golden pendant is beautiful Jeg. So special. And your new white south sea rope is stunning as well, personally I really like when there are some other colors present even in a one colored strand. Gives the pearls an edge and there is something to look at. Just gorgeous.
Bweaves, Winter snowman is so cute, and has amazing luster. Summer rainbow and Winter snowman are great as a mismatched pair. I think that La Perlagrina would look great with Winter snowman as well, but I guess it has the wrong bail for that. Winter snowman looks a bit like the white south sea pearl in my mismatched south sea earrings from Pearlescence.

I love those earrings. Maybe I should should call them Snowdrops and Daffodils. Both favorite spring flowes of mine.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. There's so much to catch up on!
SydK: I think drop shapes are my favourite now, too. You have a lovely variety of drop pendants. And your new fireball is very lustrous!
Jeg: That Kojima golden SS pendant is a stunner. The white SS rope is lovely too. Pearls just look really good on you!
BRM-UK: Those retro earrings are ladylike and have great presence.
86Corvettegirl: Sorry to hear about your hand. I hope the surgeon gets a clear margin and that it heals up well.
BWeaves: Your new pendants look great as earrings too. Isn't multipurpose jewellery the best?
Charlotta: Good name idea! Yes, maybe Winter Snowman is a long-lost cousin to your Snowdrop...

Thanks everyone!

JEG: I really love your new SS rope. I still wonder if I should have bought it. Haha. Love the earrings, too.

Charlotta: OOO, I love Snowdrops and Daffodils. Perfect names. And Snowdrop is a nice twin to my Snowman.

Thanks so much Charlotta, AnnG and BWeaves!:eek:

Your snowdrop and daffodil are a really pretty pair, Charlotta!

Haha BWeaves, I think you’re in pendant mode right now because of your weather.

Wearing an early champagne Edison strand from Pkinnew’s collection, originally from PP, with a metallic pink freshadama strand from PP. I made the earrings with freshwater pearls.

The luster on your white SS is just so lovely, Jeg and Bweaves. I know I don’t have the kind of lifestyle in which big white pearls would be likely to be in high rotation, but gosh I like the silvery sheen of white SS.
86C, fingers crossed for the very best possible outcome for you!
Jeg, can’t wait to see your pendant from Katbran - what a beauty.
Fireball for me today - not the new one I posted yesterday, but an older favourite with a pointy tail.

Thank you all for the positive & healing vibes! I got my nails done & had a great pedicure. I'm all set!

Jeg, I love your WSS rope & the chalcedony earrings are so cute & summery! You symphony in pink looks wonderful on you! I just love how you mix your pearls to create so many looks!

Charlotta, I love the names Snowdrop & Daffodil for your SS earrings! Perfect & well suited for such a beautiful pair of earrings!

Thanks so much, SydK and 86C! SydK, that’s a great fireball pendant! So pretty.

86C, I hope you have some pearls picked out for tomorrow to go with your nails. You’ll be on my mind. Take good care.:)

86C, good luck with your surgery tomorrow. Check in when you can.

SydK, those are pretty greenish-gold pearls on your “if I liked gold pearls” list.

jeg, gorgeous colors in your new pendant.

BWeaves, is that a reflection of the light or are there two little bumps on Winter Snowman. Maybe it’s a winter snowgirl.

Thank you Ann G, Jeg, Bweaves and 86Corvettegirl, they really are great earrings. I really like the setting on them. Reminds me of the earrings Queen Elisabeth always wears except for no diamonds and no natural pearls. I accually prefers my pearls. Looked through a swedish book about old jewelry the other day. Not a very good book, but at least one small chapter on pearls. Apparantly there were swedish river pearls at some point, fishing those was forbidden in the 1930:s. The book thought one should invest in natural pearls (old stock of course). She showed some strands of very ugly worn barrelshaped pearls. Because they had been worn much. I am sure queen Elisabeths pearls are in better shape. I for one is quite happy with my cultured pearls. No need for some barrelshaped river pearls with no luster. Also since my earrings are south sea pearls, according to the writer very, very rare. Haha. She also said that cultured pearls have better luster and orient then natural pearls. I haven't ever even seen natural pearls so I don't know if that’s true. Is it? Here I am pondering pearls really early because the water pump broke last night just after the shops closed. Not-husband had to leave really early so he could be there when they opened, less people then. At least I can get water from our old dug well in a bucket if need be. We should have drilled for a new well this spring but that has been delayed because of the pandemic. We have an old Iron stove that we can use with wood should the electricity falter as well, but it smokes terribly. Not-husbands mother died before revealing the secret for the stove, we think thrit has something to do with a cold chimney. Anyway...
Pretty strands Jeg, how does the early edisons compare with those today?
That fireball pendant it gorgeous SydK, I am on the lookout for one that looks like a ghost but haven't found the right one yet.

There are natural pearls and then there are GOOD, expensive natural pearls. There are cultured pearls that are dull and then there are Hanadamas, which are super shiny. Cultured pearls can be worn down to a barrel shape, too. It just depends on how much they are worn.

SydK: Nice fireball!

Exactly Bweaves, it was such a wierd thing for a writer to write. Don't they need to check their facts?

Catching up again...And really guys, how can we stay on ban island with such new beauties popping up here? You all look fabulous, and tempting. Forget an escape boat, it looks like there must be an island bridge to PearlMainland nearby.

Update: "Surgery took longer than expected. My surgeon was very meticulous & careful to make sure all the cancer cells were removed with a wide margin of clear cells. He went deep enough to determine that the cancer had not moved into the ligaments, tendons, or blood vessels in my hand. I have an over 2 inch incision & about 20 stitches or so. So the surgery was very successful & the doctor is pleased. For the next 2 weeks, I have to keep hand elevated & very minimal use...no pulling, pushing, lifting, or manipulation of the hand. He did say I could type on the computer for short periods as long as I use my right hand for hunt & peck only. Initial bandage has to stay on for 48 hrs & not get wet. I will be able to change the bandage Friday but hand cannot get wet til stitches come out in 2 weeks. So I will be mostly reading & not posting much for the next 2 weeks. So keep posting your beautiful pearls Ladies!! Kanaloa is indeed my protector & good luck charm!

Glad your surgery was successful, 86C. The key Pad on my iPad has gone insane so I just use voice to text wherever possible. You might try that.
