        • Serendipity! I wasn't even going to go to that shop but it was very near the library and I had books to return.

          • It's a cold, rainy Saturday here. But, my SS harvest strand can brighten up any day. I like wearing it off center. It shows off the larger keshi and the bluer pearls, which were arranged towards the back of the strand. This strand has lots of rounds and ovals, which allow it to be oriented in pretty much any position.

              • Harvest strand of gorgeousness...
                PDs, seriously, I NEVER ever find anything good! That clasp looks so nice with that strand. Better than winning the lottery (almost, if the lottery was a pearl lottery)

                • Harvest goodness!!!!

                  PD: I never find pearls anywhere. Then again, it's been next to never that I check out the jewelry section of consignment shops. I need to take a better look. That's a great find.

                  • Thanks JP and BWeaves!

                    I don't usually see jewelry that is to my taste at consignment stores. I'm more likely to find books, silk scarves, and the like. When my D was young and my mother was still living, I would sometimes find things for them. These days I don't visit the shops often. I was just lucky!

                      They're about 6mm-9mm. The 14K white fish hook clasp has 3 small diamonds (or at least that is what they were sold as.)

                      Here it is after a bath. I'm going to restring it. It's 22.75" at present. There aren't gaps between the pearls, but I could see it being a bit shorter after restringing.

                      I think they were worth my $38.
                      PDreams what's the graduation? They look substantial!! Scored.

Wore it again 2016 but I don't think there are photos of that once with the sweater. Mostly I remember how TINY the holes in those pearls were lol ... I had to change the embroidery idea I had, and couch down the strings of pearls, as no needle I could find would fit those holes, although Marianne has since recommended a beading needle that might work.
                        Cathy I remember that sweater and it is simply exquisite. You are so talented to be able and create something like that.

                                That's great Battah and thank you. You can really up your necklace game with enhancers going from just a plain strand to adding an enhancer then all of a sudden you are wearing a statement piece.
