Baby gem akoyas. In a strand and then integrated into a bubble bracelet and a chain for my pendant.

This is very pretty but as a pearl knotter, I'm concerned for that knot job. If you did it yourself ok, but if you paid someone, well that's a poor job. Beautiful pearls!

Haha no worries I did it myself. Certainly no pro and only my 4th time doing it. I plan to reknot every month for practice. I’ll get there eventually. If you have any YouTube videos you’d recommend though let me know :)

Whew! Ok then :)
Self taught but do you have the needle point tweezers to clutch the thread as close to the pearl as possible? That helps a lot. I know there are 2 thread systems that might be easier, so check those out? Sorry, no recommendations there.

The finish on those pearls. I cannot get over that finish. They look dreamy on you, too :)

Your pearl projects are so fun. I hope you are loving them as much as we are watching your new styles. I knot my own necklaces too, save the vintage graduated strand. I didn't even chance it!It's pretty fun to know you can make your own pearl jewelry.

I learned elsewhere on another forum :)

Was googling how to take Tahitian photos to show their colors. Their colors were so difficult to capture

My Tahitian necklace comes with this pearl mark certificate. Does anyone knows or could help to translate?

Iridescent color?
Body color?
Shape?
Remark?

The others are ok as there’s English next to it

Oh, they're so beautiful! I'm happy for you. That luster is very deep and they look amazing! The size looks royal. That soft satiny look is very romantic. The color is great, Do you feel like a queen wearing those beauties?
