I joined PG last autumn. I got some really helpful advice about pearls I considered buying and reading through the beading section helped me a lot since I string my own pearls. Since then I have mostly been lurking but now I would like to share my small collection of homestrung pearls.
Is it good or bad to share all the information about where I got my bits and pieces? They are all recommended and fellow beaders might be interested but I don't want to spam. If it is a problem, let me know, and I'll edit it out.
My first necklace was made from big freshwater hunkers from a company I can't remember the name of right now, German wholesellers. They are up to 13 mm. I love the look but they are so heavy! I just restrung them but the pictures are from the fall. The claps is a copper clasp I got from Etsy.com. I still use thread from Griffin. I haven't graduated to finding a needle that works for me yet
