    Knotty,

    I can see use for it. When I was restringing a set of pearls for my wife about an hour before she was to wear them the string broke with about 6-10 pearls left to knot. I had to...

    I ordered the white ones and I am still waiting (rather impatiently as I am anxious to see them). It seems that there is a rather long delay from the time that things are ordered and when they ship....

    That makes great sense. I had not noticed the logo as I was focused in on the pearls. Now everybody knows a small part of why I don't run PearlParadise. :-) I never thought about...
