I didn't get them! I was leaving the country in a week and though PP expedited the package, it was caught in some weird postal loop that went back to LA instead of Boston where I was at.
PP did offer to post them for free to Singapore (where I am currently at now) but PayPal refunded me before that happened. After all that, plus busy with my move, I gave up on the strand.
I regret doing that though!! I've since satisfied my pearl urges with beautiful FWP from etsy but I still think about that PP strand that got away.... hopefully there's a next time!
