I just tried posting using my phone...got the photos up, but no text.

This is a chalcedony and pearl necklace made by Nancy Yuan, and purchased from an online consignment site. The main pearl is a 10.5mm carved tahitian and I believe the small gray oval pearls are dyed freshwater pearls. I also purchased a similar necklace with onyx beads. They are rather dainty necklaces but I love them for the summer. I thought the carving was lovely.

When I looked at Nancy Yuan's website, I saw only gold jewelry, but was able to find this necklace and others by doing a search on "tahitian." I wonder if she no longer is making pearl jewelry and that is why the consignment site has some of her pieces. Most have been purchased but there is still a lariat necklace made with malachite beads with two carved tahitians as well as a gorgeous, long tahitian strand with a beautiful sapphire and gold clasp. I've resisted temptation for several weeks now but I might succumb one of these days.

JEG: Love that Y necklace and your earring designs are great.

TriciaS: That carved Tahitian is beautiful, and I love the asymmetry of the necklace. I also have summer pearls and winter pearls. Some of my jewelry just screams, wear me with summer clothing, and other pieces of jewelry scream, winter woolies and tweed jackets.

Yesterday was Dad's 90th birthday, and my sister flew in (as it was her birthday, too). I wore my Beachy tin-cup with the feather pendant. And Winter Snowman and Summer Rainbow as earrings. All from Kojima.

Then today I wore Everything Bagel rope, ombre' keshi rope and freshwater keshi tin-cup and matching earrings. Plus Spring Petal pendant. All from Kojima. I just adore ropes of pearls, and these are even more colorful in person.

Jeg your mountain cabin looks like such a peaceful place! The full moon must have been amazing there, we have had some beautiful evenings with the moon over here. Love your pearls as always! The asymetrical pieces are among my favorites!

TriciaS your carved pearl necklace is so beautiful! Love the carving on the pearl and the combination of the pearls and gemstones. Lovely!

BWeaves you have the most amazing collection of tin cups!!!! All of them are special, beautiful whimsical pieces, love, love love them!!!

I have been playing with my Tahitian love necklace these days, added a few new pearls from Druzy, waiting for one “last” pearl and will restring it again...It shows too dark on the picture though...

Wishing everyone a great weekend!2963B2DB-CCB8-4E2B-8756-81C42D811379.jpeg - Click image for larger version  Name:	2963B2DB-CCB8-4E2B-8756-81C42D811379.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	231.6 KB ID:	453771

Thank you guys! I love to play with that necklace but these days it’s mostly pendants for me... Another one of Druzy’s pearls, this one has a pinkish glow, I can’t resist a pink pearl same as with the blues...I made this chain with smallish labradorites and tiny freshwater keshis from Wen.E3A50785-AEDF-4B4E-AAD1-3096D0AD93E6.jpeg

Thank you Douglas, SurfnSci and Charlotta! I love little gemstone chains and the labradorites are one of my favorites! The keshis from Wen were recommended to me by Gemandpearlover and I have used them in different designs...Cute little pearls!

I love all your long ropes and ropes of pearls, BWeaves!

TriciaS, that’s such a pretty carved pearl. Love the coloring with the gem beads.

Eolian, your Love strand has great continuity for being assembled pearl by pearl. I also really like your pendant. I have been wanting to make a gemstone strand, but which one to choose?! Ahhh, Gemandpearlover... I miss her pics!

I am back home. Had to return for some appointments I had scheduled for this week. I received news my MIL died yesterday. She was such a lovely person.

Tiny vintage strands with a coral pendant that was in my mom’s jewelry box, and earrings I made.
