    I can get 22" necklace over my head without a clasp...just. A doubled pearl necklace? Maybe, given that the pearl diameter isn't large.

    But I think restringing with connectable clasps is a better idea. The small size orbit style clasp would make a good connector-- they come in several sizes in rhodium placed sterling silver, 14K, 18K. Rio calls them "oval push clasps":

    You could leave 4 loose pearls to make dangle earrings-- say, 2 per earring. Use a head pin + eye pin to connect the 2 pearls, wire wrap onto a leverback finding.

    Thank you! That's what I was thinking ... and thanks for the tip on Rio clasps.
