eolian pearls, lucky for me the pearls on cmw pearls are usually sold when I check. Haha, might be you. When I bought my rainbow bracelet I refreshed the site every minute, since I had seen it on Instagram before. Lucky for me it was my breakfast break then. The blue and the apple green bracelet fell into the basket all by itself that day.

Thank you for your enthusiasm SurfnSci and Cathy! I will most definitely share my new lovelies once they finally finally arrive! Just a bit more patience...although I feel like buying a plane ticket and going to get my pearls myself ;-)

eolian pearls Haha, I don't blame you! It's so frustrating to wait and worry!!! I once had a package (ironically with a SoC piece!) sit in customs just down the road for nearly 2 months. I was honestly convinced it had fallen behind someone's desk and would never get to me; I definitely contemplated driving there to get it myself!

I am now obsessed with wire wrapping, and a huge thank you to everyone who has posted techniques/tips and pearly inspirations on the forum! Today I'm wearing mixed Vietnamese akoyas from a PP vault sale a few years ago.

SurfnSci, that wire wrap ombre is stunning! I had my mixed color akoyas restyled into a long mixed rope a few years ago; now I am sorely tempted to ombre it ... gorgeous :)

SurfnSci your ombre akoya tincup is simply stunning. That's such a pretty look. I never did ombre akoyas. I will have to find some multicolored to play with soon

Oh my goodness, thank you so very much for your kind words, CathyKeshi, Charlotta, eolian pearls and BWeaves!!!! Your creations and stylings always inspire me :)

I am now back vacationing on Ban Island, kindly escorted by my loving husband so that I didn't fall off the boat or try to swim to a different island, so I'm thinking about giving some other older pearly pieces a wire wrap face-lift.

Thank you, eolian, BWeaves, and SurfnSci! Eolian, so glad the worry about your packages is over! SurfnSci, your wire wrapped necklace is fantastic!

I seem to be criss-crossing the Sound a lot this summer. I just spent some time at my friend’s cabin on a private island across the Sound. All the owners have their own boats because it’s the only access. Rustic, but relaxing, with great views back to the city. Some smoke this week blocking the views of the mountains. Still no orca sightings with all my crossings. Saw a couple huge seals, but that was it.

Akoya keshi necklace from Kojima, with a SS pendant from PP. Keshi bracelet from Kamoka, and Tahitian keshi earrings from Maui Divers, Hawaii.

Lovely combinations jeg . That south sea rope is marvellous.
SurfnSci. I often find new favorites when I am forced to remake the pearls that I already have.on hand. Not always on Ban Island, but the swedish postal service makes you think that you are.

OMG eolian pearls I think I do remember that issue with your pearl...and if it was not a pearl I sent you it happened with someone else :(
The joys of shipping!
Your tin cup is gorgeous...and it looks dazzling on you! :D

So glad you had a good visit to your friend's cabin, Jeg. We spent 4 days in a cabin on a back bay of a little island across from Seattle a few years ago; it was magic :) Lovely pearl combos and looks, I especially love that akoya keshi necklace, and that tin cup with the glowing pendant ... Wow!

SurfinSci, your Akoya ombre necklace is gorgeous!!!! Love the wire wrapping!

Jeg, your pearl combinations are stunning & drool worthy!

Wore my Tahitian & South Sea ombre strands to help my son pick out an engagement ring for his girlfriend on Sunday.
Today, I wore Kanaloa to pick up the ring for him & have drinks & appetizers with the hubby now that he has recovered from the vivid.
