    About Keshi Pearls

    They are round, prohibitively expensive, white or cream, or, if you are very lucky, pale pink. Black ones were a myth, weren’t they – the objects of legend but out of the reach of ordinary mortals like myself if they existed at all, a bit like black roses and carnations? Keshi, Biwa, nucleated, non-nucleated, freshwater or saltwater pearls – the more I looked into the subject the more fascinated I became and the more my head spun with the volume of information I was finding. What, for example, are Basra? Akoya? Abalone? Baroque pearls – why “Baroque”? I thought that was a period of history associated with a particular type of decorative art! Blister pearls – are these the same as Mabe pearls? I once had a friend who was given a Mabe pearl ring as a birthday present – very impressive! Then there are Blue, Clam, Conch, Coin, Potato and Rice pearls are named for their shape: the list of different types of pearl goes on endlessly. When I discovered freshwater pearls I was over the moon. My first purchases of freshwater pearls were necklaces of small, rice pearls that I made at the duty free shop in Manila airport. I thought I had gone to heaven!

    So where shall I start? I thought that Keshi pearls might be a good place – I love the fact that, in Japanese, the word “Keshi” (pronounced “kay-shee”) means “poppy” as these pearls, which are an accidental by-product of pearl culturing, were small, like poppy seeds, and were thought to be of less value as they were difficult to drill a hole into. Keshi pearls form without a nucleus which the oyster rejects. Because they have no nucleus they are 100% nacre and have a very high lustre as a result. I have noticed, in my searches through photographs of Keshi pearls and in handling them, that a flattened, almost petal-like shape is quite common and this gives unique opportunities to modern jewellery designers.

    Gone are the days when a pearl had to be perfectly spherical and perfectly white to be considered valuable. It is ironic to note that Keshi pearls are now becoming rare. Why? It is because pearl farmers now have the means of x-raying pearls to see if they have retained or expelled their nucleus. If they are found without a nucleus they have another nucleus inserted and the Keshi doesn’t form: what was once thought of little value is now a rarity!

    Of course, if you want a really expensive Keshi pearl you need to look for a South Sea Keshi. These are formed in the biggest of the pearl-producing oysters, the Pinctada Maxima oyster. This beauty is huge! It is the largest pearl oyster in the world and can grow up to twelve inches in diameter. It is the “mother of pearl” oyster and is valuable to producers of shell pearls (another type that I will write about in another blog). Big oysters produce big pearls, so the South Sea pearls are highly sought-after.

    Jewelry for Everyday Style

    When pulling an outfit together, you will need to choose jewelry that matches the colors you are wearing. A red blouse and white skirt, for example, is begging for ruby earrings or a ruby ring. If you’re wearing an outfit that has an array of colors, you have a lot more freedom in picking jewelry. You can either choose a piece or pieces that match the most prolific color of your attire, or you can elect to go with jewels that will help bring out a background color.

    If you are looking to add a touch of luxury to your outfit without overdoing it, diamonds are a classic, feminine touch. Choose a simple but elegant diamond ring in white gold. If you’re already wearing an impressive engagement or wedding ring and don’t want to overshadow it, try a pair of wonderful diamond studs. Of course, you can also combine diamonds and emeralds, for example, for a color combo that will both awe and draw envy.

    What do you do if no matter how much you search, you can’t find a piece of jewelry that really makes your look pop? As a woman of high class and sophistication, you never settle. You wouldn’t be where you are now if you did that, right? What you do is create a custom piece. Before you start wrecking your perfect manicure over the fact that you aren’t a jewelry designer, know that you don’t have to be. Visit your favorite custom jeweler, and they will be able to help you construct the ring, necklace or pair of earrings that you’ve always fantasized about. Want a rose gold ring featuring diamonds and your birthstone? Dreaming of a necklace that exudes luxury but can go with every outfit? Whatever you want can be yours, quickly and easily.

    Jewelry is a woman’s ultimate accessory. Rings and necklaces never go out of style, and they will certainly last longer than your favorite pair of heels or the scarf you bought on sale last week. They are also the part of your outfit that is sure to draw the most scrutiny. When you meet someone new and their eyes stray to your hands or neck, what do you want them to see? A ring or necklace that you sort of like but aren’t really proud of, or a sparkling, glistening piece of jewelry that is as opulent and magnificent as you are?

    Silver Earrings Overview

    The great thing about silver earrings is that they look great with just about any outfit. You can wear them to work or school. You can show them off at a formal event.

Since silver is a neutral color, they won’t look tacky, no matter what kind of outfit you choose to wear with them.

    That said, you still need to realize that not every style is appropriate for every occasion.

For this reason, it’s in your best interest to own a few different pairs. That way, you’ll always have some nice silver earrings to wear, no matter where you go.

This day and age, you can order modern style earrings or vintage style earrings. If you prefer the classic look of vintage earrings, you can order replicas made out of new materials.

    Another thing to consider is how simple or elegant you want your earrings to be. Even a pair that is simply made out of silver can be very beautiful. But if you really want to go all out, you might want to get a pair with an intricate design. How about a pair of silver dangle earrings with diamond embellishments? Or a pair of hoop earrings made out of silver and Swarovski crystals?

    If you want something a bit more than stud earrings, but don’t want long dangles or hoops, you can go with a huggie pair. These cute earrings barely circle around your earlobe. Some are solid silver while others feature tiny gemstones or crystal embellishments.

    Now you have some ideas of what to look for in the perfect pair of silver earrings. As mentioned above, you should go with a few different pairs – especially if you have a versatile wardrobe. Just look online for some ideas of which styles will suit you the best.

    Make Braided Bracelets

    How to make a braided bracelet

    The first thing that you should do is to cut three strands of the material that you want to make a bracelet from. The material can be a yarn, thread, leather or shoestring. For ideal results you should ensure that the strands are of different colors that look good together. For example, you can choose red, white and yellow.

    You should tie the strands together by tying a knot at the top of the strand while leaving a one inch of material above the knot.

    For you to easily braid the bracelets, you should ensure that the strands are long enough. To anchor the bracelet, you should tape the short loose ends of the strands to the tabletop. You can also tape the loose ends to the edge of a desk.

    You should then braid the bracelet by separating the strands into three groups: left, right, and center. You should move the right strand over the middle strand and then the left strand over the right one. By doing this you will have moved the center strand to the right side. You should continue braiding until only an inch of strand is left.

    After completing doing this you should tie a knot at the end of the braid and untape the bracelet. If you want to fasten the bracelet, you can tie the loose ends together.

    How to make other braided bracelets

    There are many other braided units that you can make. For example, you can make a beaded unit by braiding cotton strings while adding beads along the way.

    There are also braided wrap string bracelets that you can make by wrapping two strands of string or yarn around a third strand and making a bracelet out of them.

    You can also make a braided paper unit by simply braiding three thick strips of paper instead of a string.

    If you have advanced skills, you can make an add-on braided bracelet. Here you start by braiding three strands of strings and add more as you continue braiding.
