This is a very bad instinct for natural pearls - you'd never be done.

I might not be a collector, through years of playing with pearls for free [no limit...], all I could think about was which one would I keep at the end; there was no End - I found a new field to dig myself in instead & the time for such a pearl is now. The pin has the right idea for the small pearls that interest me.
You’re so correct. There’s never an end. Thank goodness the affliction is controllable... :lol:

Choosing one pearl, the finally-final pearl, that’s an even taller order. I’d have failed too. Consolation in numbers? o_O

Yes, no wonder it didn’t work :lol-2:
I mean, we’re talking about a man who just bought two bunches of parsley instead of one coriander and one parsley because “they look the same, I picked them from the right sections, must have been stocked wrong” :lol:

Gorgeous! What are the other pearls in the photo? Those tiny ones look intriguing.

The babies are both from Cees! 3.5-4mm akoyas - one blue, one multicolour. The blues aren't particularly well-matched but some are very strongly coloured - I'll probably remove some of the outlier pearls for more even colouring one day. Multicolours are very forgiving ::)

I'm posting this piece here in SMTB for visibility. I learnt of these gemstones only recently myself!! These farmers are sorcerers and I want all my PS friends to discover their enchantments :love:



I bought these pearls loose, a couple at a time, from Perlas del Mar de Cortez in Guaymas, Mexico, over the course of about six months. They range from 9.1mm to 11.4mm. I rearranged them dozens of times before settling on this lineup. Hisano and I decided on thread and clasp. Heck, I photographed the whole layout.

I knew exactly what the finished bracelet would look like.

Hisano's printer-paper-lightbox snap of the piece that materialized from everything tied together... Still took my breath away.

These magical consummations of colour - fantasies of swirl and churn that feel so tauntingly ephemeral, that promise to elude capture - only something, somewhere, somehow managed to freeze them in time...

And perhaps the most inspiring reflection - these are pearls!! Just pearls, from one special breed of oyster - this is the sort of magic that creatures in our world are capable of!!
