    Remember, every strand is unique, because the pearls are made by oysters, not by machines. That goes for the hanadama strand and it goes for the Miki strands.

    If that particular hanadama strand...

    The strand looks bigger because the pearls are bigger than round pearls in a 10-12.5mm strand would be. That's one reason I love strands composed of drop/baroque pearls.

    We're heading out to do some grocery shopping. It's raining but at least it's not so cold today. One day's reprieve before the temp drops again.

    I played with the color to make the background more white.
