  1. Thank you for simplifying this, MaiTai. I like the weight that the pearls add to the scarf. It can entirely change the look of a scarf in seconds.
    Love the music, too, but this American will be in your native country soon.
    Warm hugs, CS

  6. I love your videos, my dear MaiTai! They are so profissional! The pearls look lovely with the scarves. I am just a bit afraid that the closure of the necklace may pull a thread of the scarf. Will give it a try though.
    Wishing you a great week ahead. Warm hugs, Manuela.

  7. It seems you are heading towards the film industry, your how to's are really professional works and Cecilia is obviously doing her job! Btw, I am figthing to do something with my long pearl strand without closure ... the battle is not finished yet, lol.

  10. Wow Wow Wow! What an amazing idea! Will try the Gavroche today! Am now upset that I have just given away my long "water based" pearls as I no longer wore them! (treated myself to a south sea strand before we left London) I may be buying another set! Thank you again

  11. Many thanks for the lovely comments, dear ladies x

    Scarf Addict, happy playing!

    Tereza, glad you like it :)

    Manuela, so true, one always needs to be mindful about sharp edges!

    Lilian, let me know if the problem with the closed necklaces persists. Good luck!

    Jamais, much love to the french girl in America!

    Trudye, oh how I wish too, right now! Happy week to you as well <3

    ssb, have fun with the Gavroche-necklace! Will be fabulous with a south sea strand :)

  12. I really could not get the video to work, so I just pushed it along manually and missed the music :( The concept is wonderful and so chic. Your next challenge may be to do it with a double strand and/or two different color strands. Wonderful as always and I applaud your creativity!

    Thank you, dear Samantha. Have fun!

  15. Came back to watch again as I was trying with the stand closed up and it was not working. Now the video, music and pearls are working the way they should :) Such an interesting look!

  17. Hello dear Mai Tai!
    It has been a long time since I last visited your blog (too much working!). Now I have enjoyed your different pages - thank you! They are all very inspiring and delightful to watch as ever!
    I haven't thought of using a necklace on a gavroche earlier, but now I am going to try! Your films are always very instructive and you make it look simple and easy to follow.
    Love

  27. Maitai, may I ask if a Twilly works with pearls ?
    Again, many thanks. Mandy

    1. Dear Mandy, yes, it works in the same way. The look will be thinner though, so I would take a long perl necklace, and loop it two or three times around the neck. Hope this helps :-) Best, MaiTai
