Silver Akoya from Takahashi. These were bought last December, but I was slow at learning to knot and I’ve only just assembled the bracelet! Speed is not a skill I possess. Procrastination, on the other hand, I have in bucketfuls…
I had originally wanted non-baroque blue Akoya, but they turned out to be as rare as hen’s teeth and I’m really pleased to be honest - the silver of these is a really lovely neutral. And Takahashi value is the best!
This is such a neat and tidy stringing job!! But then, knowing you as I do, I would expect nothing less, you are meticulous!!
And OMG this colour is SO pretty on you!! The perfect cool neutral
Back from rugged hiking vacation and happy to wearing these again! The baby akoyas never come off and they held up well to sunblock, bug spray, hiking dust, pools and hotubs!
I want to have an eternity made with baby akoya!! So I’m extra interested to hear about smaller pearls in rings... How often do you wear your ring? The pearls are in wonderful condition!
Oh no! I’m sorry about your earrings.
I’m sure they just need a little glue as you said if the peg has come out with the pearl! Easy enough to do by yourself. All you need to do is clean any old glue off the finding and the pearl, put a dab of glue on and you’re done! I get all my pearls sent to me unset (less important tax that way) and just glue simple settings myself. It’s super easy!
I have really shaky hands
What sort of glue do you use ?
What do i clean the old glue off the finding with ?
Something like acatone ?
