  • battah, maybe try the can of air (the kind used on electronics/computers) to spray into the drill holes?

    • I wiped them well with a damp cloth after stringing them up (on wire with silicone bumpers), so they seem ok for now. Canned air is a good call though, I'll get a can! In the past I've washed them on their temporary strand and hung to dry so the thread helps wick the moisture out of the cavity. This is a temp string-up so I may give them a temporary stringing on cotton thread and bathe them before I string them permanently. But there's no smell, thank goodness.

          Thank you! They're pretty interesting. The luster is more satiny than shiny, but they have really nice orient so the overall effect is pretty. I'm enjoying them!

            Smoking or not smoking, drilling these pearls ?

                • Thanks, Sanippy! They're fun to wear I need to take a page from baby nurse's book and try layering them with smaller white rounds, I think that would look cool.

                    I vote for that look! And maybe layering in one of your gorgeous pendants too.

                      Good call! I'm still trying to master layering with pendants, I feel like I don't do it right. Must study BN's thread more closely!

                          • Gorgeous soufflés, battah. The luster is amazing.
                            Wonderful oink T, Lugana. I hope you had a great time in Japan.

                              • It's been a bit busy here. The weather's finally getting bearable to layer on the pearls.

                                Mom's akoya choker with my natural white Hanadama rope from PP. My PP studs from Ruckus. And Eowyn's Starry Mantle embroidered with freshwater pearls as stars.

                                And without the handwoven shawl.

                                Pistachios and peridots. Or maybe the earrings are tourmaline. The pistachio akoyas were my Ruckus 2016 grab when I first walked into the showroom. There was only the one strand. I'm still kicking myself that I didn't hold onto the blue strand that was in the same bag, but I figured I already had blues. But they were spectacular. Small and intense.
