OMG, this is the MOST CREATIVE use of those flat FW pearls I've ever seen. Stunning. I would consider doing one just like it, but my flat FW pearls are all drilled and I don't think it would look good with the drill holes. Might be worth finding some undrilled just to play with them. Are they glued to a base...I would love to see the back of the arrangement of pearls.
Those are gorgeous with your top jeg.Thank you, CatMom and CathyKeshi!
BWeaves, your Kasumi earrings match perfectly with your ripple strands!
A subtle ombre rope of Tahitians and Tahitian keshi from Kojima, a bracelet of J. Hunter Fiji pearls from a PP Ruckus, and freshwater flower earrings.

A few people have recently asked about how I take my pics. For me, it’s a no fuss, set the pearls on a chair, and take a snapshot operation. It’s all about the natural light that comes through the windows. I just take pics with my iphone and crop. I do not alter the color at all, but the color varies so much depending on the weather, time of day, and the season. Adding an example… I took the pic above just a few days ago. Below is a pic I took during the summer of the same set of pearls. Both pics were taken on full sunny days, same location in the house, but the seasons here are quite different.

Would still love to see the backside of the flowers to see how they were woven...super cool!Thanks so much, CatMom and MOPTrumpet!
I’m posting some old pics. I’ve had these brooches for a long time. Sarah knows an elderly woman in Hong Kong who made them. The pearls are woven, not glued, as the petals have movement. I took these pics several years ago of my smaller brooch that I wore on a fabric bracelet. The freshwater necklace is also from Kojima.

Thanks BWeaves and 86C! I would never be able to decide on the “one,“ so I have multiples!I love Kojima's pearl stuffed shells, and Hisano's little h pearl stuffed pearls. I just can't decide on the one for me.
