Re: So I bought some new stuff...

8. "Wave" multi-colored Tahitian rope from Golay Singapore - 7 to 14 mm I don't have this strand yet as it is being strung with orbit clasps from pp. But I took some pics in the office when I dropped off the clasps. The wave strand looks far better IRL than these crappy pics taken under o...

thanks, bsomio. It is amazing how thick that nacre is, isn't it??!! And I love how shiny black it is when it's polished. Now, just need to see it with all those sparkly black diamonds set in the middle. :D

Re: It's here!! Pastel Tahitians and black spinels!!

Oooh. Are you customizing your earrings or buying from the site? Pls post loads of pics! I am having custom ones made. The tahitian pearl I chose has intense green overtones and, although, it is baroque, it has a bit more of a round shape. I think the geodes need to be baroque in shape, but at the ...

Re: Cultured Pearl Association of America South Sea Trip

Now wouldn't it be great if they worked with a travel agent and offered the non-winners a chance to buy the trip, similar to the trips the Pearl Girls take? those "pearl girls" trips always look like so much fun. Hmmmm... maybe we should start another group of "Pearl Girls" and ...

Re: Marble Countertops?

I've also heard all the warnings about using marble. We have granite in our kitchen. But last year I asked for one of those large white marble pastry slabs for Christmas. Well, silly me never realized how heavy it would be- so it has ended up staying up on my counter. I use it all the time and it's ...

Re: Cushion Sandbox Wars

I'm saddened by the way this thread has gone. It's unfortunate if Caysie was "shilling" ( and by saying this I am not questioning the mods), as she didn't need to. Her pieces are gorgeous and there are several of us "real" customers that posted our rings and are very happy with t...

It's here!! Pastel Tahitians and black spinels!!

So I thought I'd start a new thread with the finished necklaces. They turned out beautifully- I am soooo excited. Hisano was able to make exactly what I wanted. A HUGE thank you to Jeremy who hand selected the pearls for me, and to Hisano for searching the Hong Kong market for my diamond cut spinels...

Re: Black & White

I like the symmetrical design of this, but will wait for Chenai's asymmetrical design before I decide for sure. It will be stunning either way.
