Re: Questions for planning a rope.

Mine were made with parts of 4- 17" graduated multi colored round necklaces. I don't know if solid color graduated would cost more or less. I guess it will depend on the grade, size of the pearls and shape you choose to use.

Re: HHPMOM.... Took your advise and it worked!

The photo of Hhpmom in the green dress holding the umbrella is the first time I saw this rope. She wore it to Jeremy and Hisano's wedding. She brought it to the ruckus and again I admired it on her. These photos don't do it justice, it's much better in person. Fly girl, Yes, you were with us. I can'...

Pearl Paradise Connoisseur's sale Sept 2nd

There will be something for everyone at the highly anticipated sale of the year. Hisano will be adding 10 new items from her little h line including the Geode and Finestrino line. There is a limited number of harvest strands that will make their appearance, so be sure to come early and wait for the ...

Re: HHPMOM.... Took your advise and it worked!

HHPmom, I bought a light box on ebay. I took it outside on my covered porch and set it up with three sides (no top) and a bottom and used the natural diffused light.

Re: HHPMOM.... Took your advise and it worked!

I wonder if the reason it works with different sizes is because the colors are so different you don't notice. Has anyone done it with single color pearls of different MM sizes?

Re: HHPMOM.... Took your advise and it worked!

I was concerned about the placement of the white /gray Tahitians and the one golden south sea which is visable in the jelly roll photo at the 9 o'clock area third row in. I am surprised how well the sizes go together when worn.

Mine is 51" 7-10mm from The Pearl Source. I removed some pearls to create a bracelet and add to other strands. These were left.

Re: Suggestions for designing an SoC mabe ring?

I bought loose pearls at the ruckus which Hisano was working on. They are on the way back to me hopefully today. (4 pendants) Pearl envelope is empty again for a while so I am glad this mabe fits. I have the big one to spend $$$ next.

The prongs are under the gallery of the ring. I will have to have my jeweler adjust the top swirls.

Re: Suggestions for designing an SoC mabe ring?

Ok, I have two mabe rings in 14k gold with white pearls installed in them. I took my round SOC and placed it inside the back of the gallery and it fit. I took some needle nosed plyers and bent the prongs back and installed the SOC. I have had it on all day today. All I can say is WOW! Yes, I drove t...

Bsomlo, I had to search my ruckus photos for it. I took many of Pattye's pretty things. Druzydesigns did the work I think.

Re: Suggestions for designing an SoC mabe ring?

One other comment. You may want to hold off on a ring. You will be so mesmerized when you look at this mabe` it may cause a car wreck if worn while driving. I was looking at mine and just a slight shift makes the whole thing change. I can just imagine what it would do if worn everyday on the hand, y...

Re: Suggestions for designing an SoC mabe ring?

You will want to see it in person before planning a design, as it may be too large when you see it in person. I got two at the ruckus and only one could possibly be made into a ring.

HHPmom, When we were at PP on Sunday we were chatting while Fly girl was trying to decide on Tahitian strands. We were talking about arrangement and the Tahitian rope you were wearing at the ruckus. You advised me to put all the random MM sized pearls into a bowl and mix them around with my fingerti...

OK. These were not my experiences so I can't comment. One was told to me by a friend and unless she chooses to disclose it, I will not either.

Re: Pearl drop earrings with diamond ornamentation

Yes. That would work also. My mother left me many pairs of earrings in gemstones/14k set up like this. I never wear them. Its too expensive to have them reset.

Re: Pearl drop earrings with diamond ornamentation

No, I haven't. Just a comment on this type of style you might not have thought about. Sometimes things look good style wise but don't look good when worn. This type of style, leaver back with heavy gem or pearl on the front of the leaver has been around for decades. This design is not balanced and t...
