    Lugana, sorry I missed your comment above! They really are such special pieces. I treasure them <3

    Annnnd friends, last night I was reminded of how much I dislike stringing soufflés!! My advice is, when you buy them, have the seller string them for you because OMG what a pain. Love these John Tu mini-soufflés though!

    Beautiful! My only experience with soufflé pearls was not a positive one...the stench coming from them was so horrible I ended up not using them (gave them away).

    JP that happened with the first batch of souffles I ever worked with - not so bad that I chucked them but I definitely had to clean them out. These don't seem to have a smell. But another downside is I couldn't really wash them like I usually do before stringing, to get rid of the rest of the dust. I didn't want them dribbling water forever...

    battah, maybe try the can of air (the kind used on electronics/computers) to spray into the drill holes?

    I wiped them well with a damp cloth after stringing them up (on wire with silicone bumpers), so they seem ok for now. Canned air is a good call though, I'll get a can! In the past I've washed them on their temporary strand and hung to dry so the thread helps wick the moisture out of the cavity. This is a temp string-up so I may give them a temporary stringing on cotton thread and bathe them before I string them permanently. But there's no smell, thank goodness.

    Thank you! They're pretty interesting. The luster is more satiny than shiny, but they have really nice orient so the overall effect is pretty. I'm enjoying them!

    Thanks, Sanippy! They're fun to wear I need to take a page from baby nurse's book and try layering them with smaller white rounds, I think that would look cool.

    I vote for that look! And maybe layering in one of your gorgeous pendants too.

    Good call! I'm still trying to master layering with pendants, I feel like I don't do it right. Must study BN's thread more closely!
