    That strand is absolutely gorgeous, and you have quite an eye for color. Congratulations! I think we all would love to own it.

    and I thought doing shaded gemstone necklaces was complicated...I think pearls and their overtones would make me go blind. What a wonderful job you accomplished, btw I join the club of people thinking you should keep it for yourself!

    Some afternoon shots in diffused sun. Quite a few photos, sorry - couldn't choose which one I like more)) I keep opening the box just to have a look at them

    This ombré with the variety of pastel colors and overtones is gorgous! I agree with JP and would layer with a tincup or another piece, rather than add larger pearls (although I do like a good bubble rope!) Very nice!

    Marianne, Abi, amti, BWeaves, CathyKeshi, kalmen22, redwood66, 2thdktr, thank you ladies! There is a lot going on "behind the scenes" with these pearls now, but when everything is sorted - I think there will be a pleasant surprise coming))

    BlackPearlDudeDC, I indeed almost went blind when sorting them)) but I'm an ombre maniac, nothing is impossible for maniacs like me thank you!

    JerseyPearl, oh you are always soooo poetic about pearls, I love it! and I'm going to use your advice and start running my pearly instagram as you suggested)) thank you!

    SunSeeker, JerseyPearl, thank you! I was thinking to leave it just as baby pearls, but the bigger ones added such nice volume and made the strand long enough to easily wear it double row if needed.. I do have some pearls left to play with for tin cups and maybe some earrings
