        Kelluv, I love how your project strands turned out! How long is each strand, and what sizes are the pearls and the black spinel and white sapphire beads?

        Have you tried wearing the two necklaces together yet? I would love to see if you can replicate the layered Gellner look in black and white.

            • Hello everyone thank you all for your kind words and for the inspiration photos, and pkinnew's gorgeous strand . The pearls are around 9 mm and the beads are around 2 to 2.5 mm. The black beads are black spinel and the white ones are coated yellowish white corundum.
              The black strand is 61 inches long, and the white strand is 36 inches long.
              I used softflex extreme wire 0.014 diameter, silver crimp beads, french wire , recycled an old clasp from a tahitian strand; and used a silver lobster clasp for the longer strand.
              I repurposed a strand of small diameter tahitian pearls for these projects.
              Next time I will shorten the distance between each pearl but I didn't want to restring it again so soon.

                        Today -- PP peach/pink metallic souffle tin cup with citrines. I like the shine and glitter over the busy paisley print:

                          • Here're 3 more photos, the black strand I could just wrap around my neck 4 times; the white strand just twice. I might make more in different colour combos pink freshwaters is on my radar.

                            • Oooh, the layered look is terrific. I think if you added a third color it would be wonderful! (With green or red stones.)
