lol, I bet Heart is onto something with the idea that the joy of pearls could help you live longer....Joy is definitely good for health and well-being, therefore pearls are good for (especially our) health and well-being.

Thank you so much, Heart, theseventhsphinx and Douglas! And I agree, I very much hope pearls help us all live happier and longer :)

theseventhsphinx Haha, I just saw your comment - I am the same way. Pearl gazing is definitely my post-work treat, too!

Heart Thank you for your kind compliments! A lot of my pearls started out as strands but then I "repurposed" them into new designs thanks to the style inspirations on this forum (so I can't take much credit, lol).

Robert Wan keshi necklace from Pearlescence (that I just finished wire-wrapping so it would be longer), paired with Rikitea keshi from Druzy.

Thank you theseventhsphinx and SurfnSci! I keep taking off the baroque pearls from the Love strand which means that I am always in need of new oval/drop pearls so it takes forever to finish it! But I am almost happy with the way it is now, just a few more inches...;-)

SurfnSci Yay your new keshis arrived and are already transformed into a stunning rope! I was wondering when we will see them. They are lovely! I was thinking about you when I saw a pair of SoC keshis at Druzy’s shop, my mind immediately went to your necklace :) Oh and the Fiji barcelet/necklace is just divine!

lmgarden WOW!!!! OMG!!!! Such INCREDIBLE pieces! I was admiring those side drilled akoyas on Cees’ IG and I just knew that someone will do amazing jewelry with them but I still gasped when I saw your creations! The necklace with the blue akoyas and flower beads...PERFECTION!!! The rice Tahitian keshis!!! I have never seen anything like them! Your creations showcase the beauty of every single pearl and some more...LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!


Some pictures of my CMW holy grail circles for Heart They definitely make my day happier :)31974338-3F49-4012-887F-754C43DAE1DE.jpg - Click image for larger version  Name:	759E3B4C-4218-49D9-82EE-EE67E620F2D7.jpg Views:	0 Size:	196.5 KB ID:	461193Thank you

Aloha! I am enjoying the island sunshine. On my morning walk… a little sprinkling produces beautiful rainbows. It was a double rainbow a few minutes before, but I was juggling my fresh made to order doughnuts. Also, a “U” shaped Tahitian and keshi flower ring I brought with me. I bought this here on the islands about 5 years ago.

Great photos jeg ! The pearl flower ring is beautiful! What is the material for the flower? Looks like carved quartz?
Oh...I started craving some doughnuts and coffee :frown:

Loved the both your Robert Wan and Rikitea Keshi necklaces SurfnSci the keshi are stunning and the necklaces layer perfectly with each other :heart:

eolian pearls your bracelet is scrumptious! The diversity of overtones makes it a delight...would gladly have under my gaze whilst gulping down my coffee and bagel.:eek:

Eolian, those circle Tahitians are very much a Dream come true ... lovely!

lmgardens: Wow, what artistic and creative treasures you've made :). I am so in love with that golden globe, and the caribiners and bead touches you add; really unique! I was fortunate to get a couple strands of those rice keshi from Cees; tried to set my expectations realistic and was bowled over by their colors and near metallic luster. so far, all I've done with mine is run them through my hands, stare and admire and then put them away LOL. I didn't get any of the side drill akoyas, but hoped someone would make something wonderful and ... you did. Those little 18K daisy beads are divine! I finally got my feather pearls ;) and have really struggled to find any interesting/special gold beads to put between; still searching. THANKS for sharing your beauties with us.

Thank you Douglas and Cathy!!!

I have finally received my special akoya pearly package yesterday, and well, I am so happy I made that jump off the ban island ;-) More pictures to come, let me start with these funky shaped baroques from FlowerGem on Etsy. They are 8-9mm and so colorful! Thank you echo for introducing this Etsy shop!B00F3845-AD80-47B1-967E-AB4991FF3466.jpg - Click image for larger version  Name:	01B5BBBC-03EA-4F6F-B201-FF1B84359AB7.jpg Views:	0 Size:	67.6 KB ID:	461259

eolian pearls so glad you made the jump and got some treasures. They look very lovely!

Dear pearl friends I have been away recently due to changes happening in my life and family member illness. When I get a chance I still come here to admire all your beautiful pearls. Thank you all for keeping sharing :)

Haha- thank you, Douglas, Jeremy and Cathy! Douglas, I think it’s just a resin or something. Nothing fancy.

Eolian, those funky posts look great! Worth the jump off the island! Echo, I am sad to hear about your family. Please take good care of yourself and I will keep you in my positive thoughts. :grouphug:

I don’t know why I bother traveling with rings. My fingers get very puffy and swollen from walking, so I rarely will wear them. But, they work for taking a few pics. A non-pearl post of my rose gold flower ring with pink sapphires and diamonds. I’ve posted the earrings before, but not the ring. Then, two new ‘just for fun’ purchases from NaHoku. MOP earrings in studs and dangles. I tried them in other colors, but went for both in white.

It might be resin...but looks like carved glass, so that in my book is a great plus!

I'm so excited to catch up on everyone's pearly beauties today!!!

Thank you for your kind compliments on my keshis, Eolian and Douglas!

eolian pearls Haha, you know I can't help myself with wire-wrapping everything...and I am so glad you encouraged me to get those Wan keshis! Yours are so lovely and I definitely love mine. And goodness, your CMW circles are FANTASTIC! The colors are amazing, just wow!!! Your new lustrous studs from FlowerGem are also very lovely!

jeg Gorgeous pictures - especially those donuts, yum! Love your new MOP flower earrings, too, but wow, your flower diamond/sapphire ring is divine (and I loved your matching earrings when you posted them previously).
