    Well ~ the file upload manager isn't working, so if Cathy can come to my rescue, we're in business! I have resized the photos, so it isn't that.
    Thank you so much, Cathy!
    Here's a look at the variations. The bead nucleus measures 4mm, however I can't tell what the material is. Nacre is at least 1mm thick. The smaller pearl was 6mm. I was so excited about the smashing I forgot to measure the other pearl! I do put them in a little baggie, otherwise the fragments go all over. They do not smash easily, either.

      Oh yes, Camhatch, we may be quiet but we’re here, circling, eyeballing, hungry, longing for pearls, and more pearls.....

          Even the "resized" photos Pattye sent me come up as HUGE files on Photoshop, so all I did was take them back into PS, size them a LOT smaller, and resave, then post as usual

            Interesting! I'm wondering what the nucleus is made of.... I wish I could help with smashing the pearls LOL.

              A million thank you's to you, CathyKeshi!

              My phone's fault, the colors are slightly off of the strands; the purples are paler and the peaches not quite so golden. Interesting color shading on some of the pearls
