    The drill holes appear to be a bit too large. The optimal hole size for most findings is 0.8 mm, a size that can be widened to just about fit any...

    Did a professional jeweler glue those? What kind of glue did they use? There should not be excess glue showing.

    You are most welcome. There are a lot of stories behind those pictures and there are a lot of pictures about the environment of the shells but they will have to wait for the proper thread

    Thanks, Pattye! I'm hoping that they'll go with spring around the corner. BTW -- I saw the strand of silver-pink keshi in your artfire shop. I think they'll be great in a project that I'm working on. Are those ones that you've picked up from John Tu as well? Are they as lustrous IRL as they appear in the photos?
