    I notice P-G member/ebay seller Care Ehret (druzydesign) has a few loose GSS pearls; perhaps some might match yours well enough to be at the back of the necklace near the clasp?

    They're very pretty!

    How long did you ideally want the strand to be? If only a bit longer, you could maybe change to a longer clasp that would take up more space (e.g. orbit clasps sold by PP...

    I'm sure you can get nice colors in that size.

    Best to see in person if you can, yes!
