Thanks so much, Purr, eolian, Douglas and SurfnSci! SurfnSci, yes, they are aquamarine! Eolian, yes to leather and pendants! A winning combo and they look gorgeous on you.

I had dinner with some friends last night, and one of our friends made leis for all of us! We mostly took pictures with them on our heads, but I used it as a choker style lei for this pic. I chose this very subtle colored one, but all the others were very colorful. Worn with studs and a strand of Akoya from Takahashi Pearl.

They looked amazing! I do love mine!

jeg Oh jeg you look like a Fairy of Spring in person !!!! Must have been a wonderful evening and how glowing are those Takahashis!!! Stunning!

Thank you, eolian! I am so happy to be celebrating Spring!

A smooth Japan Kasumi pearl I chose at a Ruckus, and had Sarah (Kojima) set it on a wavy band. Worn with freshwater earrings I made, and a flower link necklace from Paris.

Kasumis are my favorite freshwater pearls :)
I especially like their unique texture, but all the more reason to enjoy the few that are so smooth! :07:

jeg Oh my goodness, so many gorgeous pearls! Your lei and dress are just beautiful, as are your takahashi akoyas, and I love your entire look today! What a fabulous Kasumi ring and FW drops, and your flower link necklace is eye-catchingly lovely.

Today I wore a necklace of very baroque sky blue Vietnamese akoyas from Pearlescence, mixed with smaller Japanese akoyas from PP.

Really nice! Love the silvery-gray blu in them, and that baroque look is not common amongst "Classic Akoya" which -to me- makes them even more precious! :heart:

Thank you, Douglas, BWeaves and SurfnSci! Oooo, beautiful, beautiful strand of baroques, SurfnSci! :love: And thank you for the kind words!!

Akoya wave strand from Hawaii, multicolored Vietnamese Akoya from Hong Kong, with something from Takahashi Pearl. I purchased a bracelet length they had sorted of a pastel Akoya mix. I knotted it using all the pearls because I wanted to see ALL the pearls, but I probably need to remove at least a couple pearls as it is too long. I also had them send a pair of baroque gray Akoya studs. These are pretty roundish and are 10.5mm.

Thank you so much, Douglas and Jeg! I'm still sad that the Pearlescence baroques were initially a bracelet, but I cracked one of the pearls as soon as I wore it, so I converted it to the necklace. The poor pearl still sits forlornly on my beading board, though.

jeg ​​Your akoya necklaces are so lustrous (is the wave strand the Baggins?) and look lovely together. I love your new dreamy pastel bracelet too, and wowza, those earrings! No PSS there :)

Thank you, SurfnSci and eolian! SurfnSci, yes, good memory, it’s the Baggins strand of Akoya! Great choice for play today, eolian! That SOC is fantastic!

Tahitian pendant from Katbran, with a strand of dark Tahitians and earrings I put together.

OOOooh BWeaves I love your ripples!! And jeg, the tahitian ring paired with the flower link necklace is so delicate and elegant. I absolutely love those together.

I've been so focused on work that I haven't been on the forum in a while and it makes me so happy to see all of you in your beautiful pieces, and when I am wearing mine I think of you :)

I almost forgot to show you! Here is a Victorian-inspired photoshoot I styled using 9mm studs, my 100" PP freshwater rope (6.5-7mm), an inexpensive 8 strand freshwater bracelet, and a jade and seed pearl ring.

Thank you so much jeg! I moved to Brooklyn a little over a year ago and there is such delicious fashion to be seen here, and a distinct invitation to express yourself. It's inspiring me. ♥

Thank you, CathyKeshi! It's so good to catch up on the posts.

My love of pearls definitely influences those around me, my sister and my mom wear and notice pearls much more now (I'm sure you all experience this as well) ...but still they don't have the kind of sustained preoccupation that we all do, which is what makes this such a special space.

I removed a couple of pearls from the Takahashi bracelet so it fits much better. I might still remove one more, but will leave it alone for now. Worn with a white and golden Akoya strand from Cees, and multicolored strands I put together with pearls from Druzy.
