Ugh I just saw Kamoka's harvest strands a week ago...I am head over heels. I might have to readjust bling budget allocation and work in a bracelet...and eventually get a necklace. They are gorgeous. @Rhd3 I will be following with interest if you move forward!

@yssie I waffle between 16 inches and 36 inches. I love love love the look of the longer strands but I think I might get more use out of a choker length. The strands with more variance are a feast for the eyes! I plan on going that route when the day comes.

@MMtwo I love Kamoka everything. Lol. They do have some of the most beautiful harvest strands.

I also love Kamoka everything. Just beautiful eye candy. I have used their pearl strands as inspiration when making my own to wear.

Right now Etsy is listing the Kamoka shop and not available. I wonder if they are taking a break on Etsy. I think In a couple of weeks we will see the Chinese pearl vendors take a break to celebrate Chinese New Year.

We can still drool at Tahitian Pearl Jewelry by Kamoka – Kamoka Pearl (kamokapearls.com) :)

In 2016, I bought my sister a bright green Kamoka pearl pendant. It looked like it was dipped in honey or something - it was just so smooth and glossy looking.

My grey Japanese Akoyas arrived- and they are glorious, just glorious! My pics are terrible where this time of year indoor lighting is poor, but even so, they still show their beauty. Pearls are slightly baroque 8.5mm.

Beautiful! They look very round and lustrous.

I would like to add some well-matched tear drop pairs as interchangeable dangles with my tiny diamond huggies, probably a pair each of blue Tahitians, white/silver CFWP or baby SSP, and blue-lavender CFWP, and blue Akoyas.

Umm - can I add one more thing to my list?

I blame this for my new project of making a Frankenstein Tahitian harvest strand. Just ordered a bunch of circles and baroques to get things kick started...

Yes- a bean clasp. The silicone bumpers are great because if you re-string the necklace you won't have to worry about knots getting stuck in the pearls.

I love the new pics. You must be so excited!
I’m definitely excited!
Hmm. Will the bumpers keep them from all falling off if the string breaks though? That’s my only concern with this method

Nooooooo. It’s delayed in customs. ::cry::

Ugh! I hope it is released soon. I truly am so excited for you. What I really want to see is the overtones on the Tahitians. The vendor pics are under what looks like direct look which shows the beautiful luster but not the colors. Are these beauties charcoal, green, cherry or peacock? Can't wait to find out.

The vendor specifically picked out ones that were less colorful for the ombré effect as they are meant to be black scale but I’m sure they still have a bit of overtone to them. I think they said greens and pinks which goes nicely with the pinked white akoyas. Fingers crossed I get them Monday or earlier. I hope I hope I hope.
