A very inexpensive "Eddison" pearl as a slider pendant from Wen Pearls on Etsy.

Something casual to wear around the neck with flannel shirts in the colder days.

Sorry these photos aren't the best. I had these delivered to my son's place and he gets grumpy after a few photos lol.

It is a metallic Edison necklace, 10-11 mm. Plus a pair of drop pearl earrings and some fun wavy coin pearl studs? (I don't know what they're called). Can't wait to see them in person!

How exciting! Can't wait until you get them and I also love the plump keshi pearls.

More Christmas pearls! The strand on the left arrived. It is part of my year long Ebay project. To create 2 mostly metallic pearl strands with 8-9mm pearls for no more than $125. I will take the metallic pearls from this strand and add/replace pearls on the other 2 strands. Then I will add a 14k gold clasp to the middle strand that I previously removed so they both have gold clasps. I have $25 dollars left to go. It's silly but fun. I make bracelets/earrings for my co-workers or friends with the unused pearls.

That's perfect for casual days and very pretty on. Don't you love a bargain? I think pearl "hunting" is so much fun.

Lovely necklace. I like Pearlescence's inventory very much. Those are very lusterous FW pearls. We need neck shots yaknow ;-)

It is awesome you gift pretty pearl bracelets to friends. How thoughtful of you. Those have a nice lustre too! It really is fun to hunt for pearls.

The new pendant came - it's a 13mm from OceanRhyme that is pretty darn close in color to a match with @molinePDG 's studs, although his are more saturated in color. But apart when worn, it is not noticable. I think this is going to be a daily wear set. I really love them.

My first Tahitian - from Kamoka pearls. Used to post on here a lot but life interfered. Glad to be back in the world of pearls!

Also purchased two 8 mm Japanese blue akoya necklaces from Pearl Paradise, to make into a 22" strand with WG orbit clasp, and 8" bracelet. Might use the leftovers for a tin cup. Happy 2021!

That is just stunning! I love Kamoka pearls.

Congrats on the blue Akoya! Please show us when they arrive!

I'm late in getting pictures, but wanted to share my perfect akoya studs from @amoline . Andrew, thank you for being a pleasure to work with, finding me beautiful earrings, and teaching me about pearls in the process!

Oh my goodness, those are absolute PERFECTION :) You must be thrilled. I love the tone against your skin, too. Do I see a rose overtone?
