SurfnSci, I love the colors of your J Hunter fiji pearls, mine are darker, but I REALLY like your pastel colors.

Eolian pearls, your CMW holy grail circles make me happy too.

jeg, great picks as always, and you know that I live through you during all your travels!

Kathykeshi, thank you so much for your kind words! Happy to hear you snagged a couple of Cees’s rice Tahitian strands! I can’t wait to see what you create with your keshis, and so glad to know you found your perfect feather pearl strand. Looking forward to the finished products!

Echo, wishing you strength and encouragement throughout these times.

This is an emerald and 18k bead necklace I made over the weekend. Within my Tahitian pearl stash I found a green saturated pearl that I set in the front, surrounded by 2 antique crystal beads from a circa 1910 necklace. It’s a bit delicate, so to wear with it I decided to make a few delicate necklaces made of tiny akoya keshi pearls, tiny 14k beads and emeralds. I don’t have photos of those yet.

Oooh, how lovely is that, lmgardens! Can't wait to see its company :) It will be a while before I finish anything; my search for some special beads for those feathers is so far unproductive, sigh ... Cee's keshi might just become 2 simple nested strands that can be connected into a long rope :)

Thank you so much, lmgarden, Eolian and Jeg!

lmgarden Lovely necklace! I especially love the antique crystal beads flanking the pearl, such a special touch. The emerald beads are fantastic, too

eolian pearls Oh my goodness, your trip off Ban Island was totally worth it!!! Your new akoyas are amazing! I'm drooling over the luster. I especially love the Takahashi silver-blues, and they are a perfect size...All 3 strands look fantastic together - Gorgeous neck shots! You and Jeg have convinced me that I need some Takahashis now, though I think DH would disagree.

jeg Love your earrings and necklace; they are both such pretty designs. Your necklace is especially gorgeous with the alternating pearl sizes. It looks great paired with your Maui Divers GSS pendant. (Super cute dress, too!)

Wow! These look so lovely on you! It's a REFRESHING look...like they are giving you this coolness to your skin. You've got a beautiful skin tone for these pearls. You complement each other perfectly!

Thank you CortezPearls, SurfnSci, theseventhsphinx and jeg! I am really overjoyed with these akoyas!

jeg Those burmese goldens are so dreamy! Love them!
SurfnSci Yes, absolutely you do need them too!!!!! ;-)

Well, I am having quite an euphoric pearly week I must say, as I finally finished the Bliss strand!
I decided to add a few Vietnamese akoyas that I had in another necklace ( Charlotta style with the scissors;-) and even manged to sneak in a SoC National selection pearl from Druzy... True to its name this necklace makes my heart sing...

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!D9C1600C-1ACE-4A54-AB13-D24F57B7CE8F.jpgD9C1600C-1ACE-4A54-AB13-D24F57B7CE8F.jpg

Thank you, everyone! Eolian, your completed strand is pure bliss! All the pearl colors flow so nicely, and I know you will love wearing it. Or just gazing at it!

Seaglass Tahitian strand from Kojima, white Tahitian pendant (with bubble gum overtones) on a little h bail, from PP, white Tahitian keshi bracelet I put together, and a ring I’ve had for a long long time. I’m not sure about this one because it was purchased so long ago. It was post rice krispy pearls, but pre roundish freshwater, so I don’t know if they are keshi, or early experimental freshwater pearls. It is set on a thick white gold band.
