Except it doesn’t cause I’ll probably end up buying more things to add!

This! My grownup personality says "You don't need any more pearls." My child personality says "But they are Robert Wan pearls and they are on sale. Wouldn't they be lovely to add to a Tahitian strand you have?" And poof! More money gone.

So since my tiny gold keshi from Takahashi came in, I decided to finish the strand. Pardon the bad office lighting. Will try to take better pics tomorrow.

So the final composition: blue baroque akoyas and small golden south sea keshi from Takahashi pearls. Circle Tahitians from CMW pearls. 24k gold beads upcycled from bracelets from China. And gray drop Tahitians from Pearl paradise.

Do you have peeps at work who enjoy watching your pearls evolve ?

A few years ago an older work mate and i had so much fun wearing necklases every day
Not to out do each other - just as a fun thing with each other - plus our uniform was so ugly

I LOVE how this turned out! Drop.dead.gorgeous

Thanks. Haha there’s like a 90% chance I add a few more things to it to add that extra inches I want.. the only question is what to add and how.

I have extra circles and akoyas that currently are bracelets that I could string together and use the same clasp so that I can “add” it to this strand or wear as a bracelet... hmmm

This is so smart. I love all of your designs. You always have the options for a second career.

That's what she said :lol: . Apologies for the juvenile humour.

Ya know, I felt bad about the pants humor, then I snorted at your answer...now I feel very conflicted. I think pearls are for bad girls.
