eolian pearls Wow, your pendants and bracelets - You have such a lovely collection! I especially love seeing your fantastic SoC mabe pendant - it's one of my favorites :love: Your bubble bracelet looks so very pretty in the sunlight!​

Charlotta2.0 I love the wrist pics of your beautiful bracelets! Amazing colors and as always, such creativity in your design.

All week I've been wearing this 8 mm WSS pearl from Pearlescence (I used it to replace the pendant's original well-worn akoya). I believe Wendy had written in the description that she helped to harvest the pearl at an Indonesian pearl farm, and I am excited to display her efforts! I'm sad my pictures don't really do it justice; there are pink and blue and green and gold overtones depending on the light.

Charlotta2.0 Thank you! Oh wow, your deep GSS enhancer is incredible, and one of my favorites of your collection - even more so since Wendy helped harvest it :) She has a green/gold SS listed that she also harvested. I'm so tempted to buy it but I'm still dragging my toes off Ban Island.
 
SurfnSci, I am happy that I did buy that enhancer, it's much prettier than what I first expected. I knew it was nice, but not that it was that good. It's like when I bought my blue tahitian studs, the ones in my avatar, I couldn't believe my eyes. They were so pretty.

Thanks everyone! Eolian, what a fun pic with all your treasures! :love: And lovely inspired colors in your bracelets, eolian and Charlotta. SurfnSci, I can see the colors running around that SS! Gorgeous pearl, and it will be more durable than the Akoya you needed to replace. Lisa, Baggins Pearls is based in California, although I bought this newest strand while in Hawaii. The owner/founder is the new president of CPAA.

I met some friends for lunch at our new waterfront center. There is a restaurant that has very casual dining, but sitting by the giant wall of windows really sports quite a view. While we listened to piano music inside, through the windows we watched the ferries come and go, and a bubble blower on the beach. I was snapping pics of the bubbles, and I didn’t look closely at the bird flying by, but I think it was a photobombing osprey.

jeg Thank you! Great bubble pics, and that photobombing osprey is too cool! Your Kojima pendant is lovely but wow, the GSS strand you made is fantastic... Hmm, now I feel inspired to wear something golden tomorrow.

Does anyone else pick their outfits based entirely on the pearls that they want to wear? :p

Thanks so much Cathy and SurfnSci! SurfnSci, I remember having this discussion before but I can’t remember where. :33: Either at one of the Ruckus’ or somewhere here on PG? I DO remember that I was the only one who chose my clothes first, then pearls.:shrug: Looking forward to seeing which goldens you choose!

Freshwater pendant from Kojima, coppery/pinky/green metallic strand from PacificPearls.US, with earrings I made. I wear this strand of pearls all the time because the chameleon pearls work with any of my clothes.

Beautiful pearls and outfits jeg. Your golden south sea strand is spectacular. I made a circled golden south sea strand out of little ministrands that I do love enough not to remake it....I do only select my sweaters/tops first when wearing golden south sea pearls. It's not like a try really hard though...jeans and t-shirt and sweater on unless it's summer, than I don't add a sweater...comfort always wins...

Thanks Charlotta! Glad to hear another of your strands has survived the cut. Sometimes it’s just nice to have a solid color strand.

Little h earrings with a strand of green Tahitians from one of my visits to the PP vault.

Such a beautiful green strand and those earrings, so pretty jeg. I love green pearls, especially those that are mostly green or blue green without any pink in them. Well those are hard to find. But I do have two mixed green strands that I love. They aren't all green but close. You are of course right about the solid colored strands. And I have some in my jewelry box that I woun't touch. That would be my blue tahitian strand from Pearlescence, the white south sea strand and the gold south sea strand from Cees. Then of course my rainbow strand from Pearlescence and my ombre tahitian rope from Cees are sacred and cannot be remade. I do have lots of other pearls to play with...
 
So many beautiful looks this week Jeg!!! I love how you completely change the color scheme from day to day and you always look perfect! Your Pacific Pearls strand is my favorite FWP necklace ever! And those shell earrings are too cute!!!! The goldens and those green Ts...Stunning!

I had a busy week, I finally received the last pearls for my ombre necklace and was playing with them for some time. The dark pearls part was just too long as I chose these pearls because I wanted a darker necklace and at the end I abbandoned my long ombre idea and ended up with two new necklaces! The Jumbleberry and The Bliss ;-)

I wanted to try a shorter look with the Jumbleberry and I just strung the pearls on 49Beadalon, fingers crossed it will hold.
The Bliss is a happy necklace inspired by Charlotta’s creations, I wish I had two apple green pearls and it would be perfect but I had the two circled pearls that will do for now. Do not look too closely at my knotting here, it is a temp strand I will remake it next week with more time...In any case now I have two necklaces instead of one, definitely a win-win;-) Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!8785CD78-E4BA-4ABB-9E6C-D3E2193E1F0D.jpeg - Click image for larger version  Name:	8785CD78-E4BA-4ABB-9E6C-D3E2193E1F0D.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	346.4 KB ID:	458395

jeg Oh my gosh, those little h earrings!!!! Amazing color and design. Your matching PP tahitian strand is also gorgeous; I think deep-green tahitians will always be my favorite color.

eolian pearls I really like the shorter Jumbleberry, and I like that you decided to make two necklaces - your new Bliss strand looks fantastic, with such lovely colors!!!
