I got this strand at a bead show in NY, they weren't expensive but every single one of them has imperfection, not one is even close to good. Anyhow, they are freshwater but not sure , would jewelry out of them sell at all or did I waste my money?
I tried polishing them by filing the brownish part with nail filer but it didn't help too much. so for now stuck them in the water, but do people care too much or what do you suggest? I feel stuck in a way. They are about 12mm to 14mm big
