I know I said I liked tin-cups because there were lightweight, but this new necklace is heavy. I really wasn't expecting the pearls to be so big. But they are sooooo shiny and lustrous.
Totally practical and beautiful. Great combo!I've decided what I really love about tin-cups.
1. They are lighter weight on my neck than a full strand of pearls.
2. They really show off the pearls.
3. Living in hot, sweaty Florida, the tin-cups are easy to wash and dry. I don't have to worry about the knots getting wet or dirty.
4. I never have to restring them.
I love your Scattered Tin-Cup, JEG. I especially love that the orbit clasps on both ends open, so you can make it a Y necklace or hang a pendant off the end. The tiny Tahitians are gorgeous.
JEG: I particularly like these Miki Huggies because the post goes straight through, and the lever back is solid and thick. You could wear them back to front and not notice a difference. I liked this style so much I bought it in both white gold and yellow gold. Some of the other similar styles that Miki has with diamonds have a thinner curved center post, which I don't like.
PP has a similar style with a completely different sort of finding. I think it's hinged at the top front and them snaps down to the pearl in the back. I'm so tempted, but I'm not sure what sort of pearls I would want with that style, since I already have white pearls.
Thank you, Jeremy and BWeaves!!
Bubbles and sister strand made of fancy colored Tahitians from Kojima. I just finished re-knotting the sister strand so I thought I would wear it. Also, two bracelets of J.Hunter Fiji pearls. I bought the J.Hunter toggle bracelet in Fiji, and chose the pearls for the orbit clasp bracelet at PP.
