Terry from The Pearl Outlet took a liking to some of the pictures I took of myself in one of TPO's ropes, and in exchange for letting him post the pictures on his website, he (ever so generously!) made me this gorgeous, gorgeous pendant. Even though he sent me a pic beforehand, I was not expecting the pearl to be this big and luscious in person! It is practically as big as my eyeball (see below... ).
It's a (very) lustrous, (very) round 12.5 mm freshwater, with a gold filigree bail and 18 inch chain. I can hardly keep it on my neck because I want to roll it around in my hand all the time. Thank you, Terry! (And thank you PG and PGers for making cool connections like this possible.)
