    The fifth strand is larger, actually. That was also by intention. Overall, the pearls range from about 8 mm to 11 mm. The arrangement of size and color was all about going for a very specific look and design. I am just responsible for the matching and drilling, so I just do what I'm told

    How much does the whole necklace (all 6 strands) weigh?

    I am not sure, actually. I would have to go back and put them on a scale. It is ready to go to New York for a preview event now, so I might not have it in my hands again for a couple of weeks.

    Well "WOW" is all I can say about it! Absolutely stunning! Do you by chance have a photo of the back? I'm trying to imagine how they all come together back there. Well done, it's truly a show stopper!

    That's a gorgeous necklace!!! It's Oscar night, red carpet necklace! Just like those oscar dresses, I wonder how comfortable it would be to wear a necklace like that for an entire evening out. Is it wrong to ask how much that cost? I am dying to know.

    A swan-like neck would come in handy here. What a lavishly lovely construction! Thanks for sharing.

    Love the look of two and three strands nestled together but six is even better. Beautifully done Jeremy.

    I'd love to see the way you're working the back too, when the opportunity comes up to photograph it again.


    A long neck would be nice, but I think the necklace requires a deep chest more. Or conversely, a less substantial chest with good shoulders.

    Isn't this stuff fun!
