Here are pictures of my new double-strand of metallic fwp from Pearl Paradise. These are 7.0 mm - 7.5 mm. When I first opened the box I was a little disappointed since they are much smaller than the jawbreaker-sized pearls I acquired recently. But after wearing them a few times, I've really come to like the size, especially since they are very shiny! Like when Alex says that there is a glow coming out of the pearl box -- they are that shiny.
I love that they are so shiny that they barely look like fwp, but for the classic range of fwp colors.
And while I'm at it, I thought I'd add some pictures of the recently-finished necklaces of pearls I've posted about previously...
