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.

Ah, the Deco Collection.

@jeg The fancy sage/bronze tahitian strand is like...my new goal in life.
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.

I can't get over the tiny Tahitians! That's one of the rarest Tahitian strands in the world!
Well, I like the sounds of that!:) I also am really honored to know Alex personally. It makes the pearls that much more special. Here’s my little grouping of the pieces I was able to put together- three strands and two bracelets. I made a third bracelet out of the teeniest pearls, but it is not in the group photo.

Thanks everyone! The seventhsphinx, that strand has the most unique coloring. I hope you find one! BWeaves, thanks for the info on your Mikimoto huggies. My friends want me to go to Japan with them next year. We would spend some time in Tokyo, then head north, but I asked about maybe going to Mikimoto Island, so they might be willing to take a detour south for a few days. (I have such nice friends!) I don’t want to spend the $$$ for Mikimoto, but some earrings would be a nice momento.

One more new piece from Collin’s Pearls. A pair of blue Tahitan studs to go with the blue Tahitian necklace. A back story… Alex had sent a pair of blue studs in the fall. FedEx sent them on a tour zigzagging around the country. It landed within an hour of me, then went missing. How disappointing! I feel so lucky he was able to put one more pair together from the most recent harvest! Wearing the blue Tahitian studs with the necklace, and two more strands of mixed tiny Tahitians-

Dear pearl friends, so many many AMAZING pearls and looks to admire!!! I have been lurking around this past month, busy busy times but I have been wearing pearls almost daily and gasping looking at so many beautiful pictures you all post! I will do a ”post and run” shortly just a quick WOW to @jeg ‘s Collins beauties, USER=62380]@BWeaves[/USER] new ombre!!!! @SurfnSci ‘s lovely tropical honeymoon pics and @Charlotta ‘s gorgeous creations (pearly and non pearly ones as well).

Soo as jeg already mentioned, I bought the Takahashi net pendant and oh I am so so overjoyed with their design! I wanted it for my SSP drop but well it looks best with a roundish pearl and I simply love with with this 12mm green T beauty from Julia of Etsy’s OceanRhyme...So difficukt to atke a decent picture of it though, extra kudos do @jeg for her great photography skills!

I also had some white baroque akoyas in my Takahashi package so I managed to tick off my casual white-silver-blue ombre necklace dream... I made an extender for it so it works well as a 18 and 22inch necklace...and also pairs nicely with my other baroque akoyas when I feel like going a bit overboard...

Wishing you all wonderful summer!!!73B95A48-778A-4EB4-82AB-AB795CECE93B.jpeg7AE8B437-6190-400E-A871-934B53D25C79.jpeg851DC59D-B82A-4A44-B21D-43ECC61C426F.jpeg3F32379A-0498-4A24-A533-48933C973171.jpeg

Wonderful pearls @eolian pearls. Lovely ombre akoya strand. I played with akoyas as well today, mostly vintage ones as I made a Wave Delight strand. I will post it soon but the photos was too warmtoned

Wowza, @BWeaves! Gorgeous pearls (that hanadama rope!!!), and I especially love your special south sea huggies from your mom.

@eolian pearls AHHHH, your ombre akoya necklace is fantastic!!! You did an amazing job with the subtle color gradient, which is not easy, and it looks great paired with your other akoya strands! The Takahashi basket/net pendant is such a pretty design, and the green T you chose for it is lovely.

@jeg, I literally get a couple heart palpitations every time I see your Tiny Collin Ts. You have an amazing, one-of-a-kind collection :love:. That tiniest little T in your action shot is so pretty *and* adorable (not a word I typically use to describe pearls, haha)
