Thank you, Cathy, Douglas, and SurfnSci! Cathy, the little fish are so adorable. The one on top is carved in motion- it’s curved and has a tail that is swishing. Douglas, it’s good to be busy with work, as long as it’s not stressful! SurfnSci, what a great remake with your SOC keshi and ombré Tahitians! Nice! The Kamoka Harvest bracelet was not a recent purchase. It is from a PP Ruckus several years ago.

Sea of Cortez strand, with the Seaglass Tahitian strand, both from Kojima.

Very nice strands jeg and BTW: I like the clasps! White gold?

Thanks, Douglas! Yes, the Sea of Cortez strand has a fancy white gold clasp with diamonds. I don’t know about the history of it, but Masik had originally strung it with that clasp.

Hmmm! I think I remember the clasp! I believe I saw it on the necklace at a Tucson Gem Show!:01:

Does this look familiar? I keep forgetting to ask Masik about it, and I am not a diamond person so I am no help at all.

echo your new earrings are beautiful, the colors and the luster are amazing.
SydK stunning blue combination
SurfnSci. Pretty ombre bracelet. I love ombre anything really. Even did a sort of ombre flower bed last spring.
AzFlyGirl, so many stunning strands. They look great on you. How wonderful it would be to be able to try out pearls in person. No good pearls to be had in sweden. Not any that I want anyway.
jeg where to start, so many beautiful combinations. Those kasumi are so colorful. I remember when I first noticed those crinkly colorful pearls, I think that it was when freshwater ripples first got popular. And fireballs and what not. I only had akoyas, off round freshwater pearls and some rather dull tahitians in a bracelet then. I thought that they were so fabulous. Then I couldn't afford any good ones, so I purchased some dyed fireballs. They were so hideous that I stayed away from freshwater pearls for a long while.

SurfnSci love how you combine the SoC with the Ts in a bracelet. They look really beautiful together! I like it better this way than the SoC on a chain

jeg Absolutely enjoy looking at your treasures again :love: look at those glossy and red corals! That coral and T mixed strand and the sea glass strand are so oceanic and dreamy. The SoC and Kasumi strand are filled with colours and joy. Even though it’s autumn in the northern hemisphere summer seems to keep lingering on you neck :cool:

Charlotta thank you! I had the same feelings about FW like you. Too many duds out there really ruin FW reputation.

Exactly echo . I tried ripples some years later and even though they were much better than the hideous dyed fireballs, they were to large and mostly pale for me,in strands at least. I have used them in my Happy bracelets, and they are great mixed with other pearls. My thoughts on freshwater pearls weren't restored until Wendy made my rainbow strand and a while later my transformer edison huggies. Those have amazing edisons in them.
Well I cannot show you them since I have apparantly uploaded to many photos in the past. Should I make another userprofile CortezPearls
 
Haha, sneaky of me... Anyway rainbow strand and edison huggies from Pearlescence

Charlotta I remember seeing your rainbow strand and the Edison huggies. They are surely very beautiful. I’m yet to invest in a good quality FW. Just waiting for the right one to come up. Lol I think the pearl guide server needs to keep up. They underestimated a pearl lover’s passion:p

SurfnSci that’s a lovely bracelet- the SoC detail looks great with the Tahitians.
jeg, your strands are all marvellous, and the SoC and Kasumi strands are both genuinely remarkable, but there’s just something about the sea glass strand that makes my takes my breath.

Thanks so much, Douglas, BWeaves, Charlotta, echo, and SydK!! Echo, I love that thought- summer lingering around my neck,;) The leaves are in all their glory right now, but for me, it does not compare to the sunshine of summer. I hope you find something that works for you in freshwaters. As Charlotta has displayed, it opens up a whole different color palette of pearls.

My wild strand of Fiji pearls from Cees, a bracelet of J. Hunter pearls from PP Ruckus, and earrings I made with picture jasper. (Thank you for the beads CathyKeshi!)

My first, very simple Tahitian and leather necklaces. So easy, so fun to make. Leatheroo cord and CMW pearls. Camera didn’t pick up the colors well... first necklace has blue T’s; second has lovely olive green pearls.
