          I had been looking all over for this bracelet, and finally found it today. I must redo it, as it’s somehow too large for me, and I didn’t do an elegant job with the gimp. But I do love the oval/ovoid peach metallic freshwaters, and I strung them on Serafil thread from Pattye in the Peach shade. Can’t wait to wear them after the restringing, because they’re perfect for Spring. I wish you all a pleasant and SAFE weekend!

              Beautiful bracelet. The colors are stunning. Maybe that's what I should do with my peachy freshwater pearls, bracelets. I will try that soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

                Thank you, theseventhsphinx and Charlotta! I need to take a sunlight photo of these, because they are so lustrous. I believe I’ll do the restringing as my creative project for today. sphinx, I love toggle clasps—that one is gold filled, from MagnoliaSupply on Etsy. She also has beautiful sterling silver ones. Best prices I have ever found for gold-filled and sterling findings, and wonderful quality.

                    I restrung my peachy metallic freshwaters. I used Peach Serafil thread from Pattye again. I do love it so. Here I am modeling it with my fitness tracker, which is, yes, a kids’ model. (I wanted a simple tracker, and couldn’t resist the blue color of this one.) Thanks for looking, and I hope you all have a nice and SAFE day/evening.

                      Your restrung bracelet is beautiful. And goes well with your tracked, I like that color. I have a simple fitbits tracker, but in black. I don't really want a big one. Very practical really. I can time cooking and such, check the weather, use it as an alarm etc and of course check health stats and such.

                        Charlotta, I wanted a simple one, too. It has some features that I love. I usually wear a watch, but this band is so comfortable that I forget I’m wearing it. I can see time, date, get reminders (if I choose), and track my sleep. The app is cute! I can watch episodes of a new Disney “Frozen” adventure if I get my activity in, haha! I’m not devoted to Disney, but I’m ok with incentives!

                            Exactly multicrome, mine track my sleep as well. Apparantly I don't sleep enough when I work, because I get up so early and don't really go to bed all that early.

                                Thank you, Charlotta, Faith, and DonnaH for your comments! Faith, I got Pattye’s pearl stringing kit from Etsy in summer 2019, and I learned how to string pearls with the information in the Lowly Beaders thread. (Also I looked up a couple of diagrams—I think I used one from Beadaholique, too.) Everyone here has been so helpful, and encouraged my very early and quite goofy efforts. I find knotting to be a very calming and centering activity. Pattye’s kit is PERFECTION.

                                I’m now re-doing some of my early projects. Sometimes my goal has been to get new pearls on my arm ASAP, so I’ve not always done a careful job. I’m fine with restringing, because it has to happen regularly anyway. Here is my next project to be redone. These are the first Tahitians I purchased. I didn’t arrange the pearls in any particular way when I knotted them. The colors are hard to pick up in a photo; they are very silvery with the occasional flashes of purple and blue. I think I’ll choose a different thread this time—maybe wine or dark purple.

                                Thank you all again for reading.
