Thanks everyone! Haha I am definitely in love with the blues and have turned them into a rope so I can see them. And using the leftovers for a tin cup (rose gold components just ordered).
I do love the tiny akoya too since they are easily wearable. The small size makes it feel less formal but still luxurious. I think more luxurious in my mind since akoyas this quality in small size and unpinked is very common. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the extra wee pearls I have. The drill holes are too small for my current needle/thread set up!
Ringed Tahitians with a t‐shirt. Necklace is an inexpensive strand from PearlParadise. The earrings are Kamoka (from LT). Tahitians are the best on a rainy day. No make up Friday, but I'm wearing pants.
