    The pearls arrived yesterday. I’m very happy with them! The description and photos were completely accurate (A to AA, some blemishes). For the price I think I could not do better. I only ordered 9 because I wanted to see how I felt about quality and shipping. I’m satisfied! You can ask them to do matching, but I decided to let serendipity be in charge. To my eye, 5 of them are on the cooler, bluer side, and 4 are more creamy/neutral. That is perfect, as I want to make my tin cup with 5 pearls. I love both silvery and creamy pearls. Here are some very quick, non-glamorous shots in natural, morning, indirect light. This is a fun journey, and more fun being shared by you all! Thanks for looking!

      In the next photos I’ll try to pick up the orient in a couple of them. Oh, la la. Very excited!

          Thank you, Charlotta! I’m so pleased with them. And already plotting to buy more. That’s how this all works, isn’t it?

              Those are nice. I thought tin-cup as soon as I saw them and before I read your comment.

                Thank you to all for your comments on the pearls! I need to take better photos of them. So happy with the glow and the orient. I’m finishing another project (cross stitch, birthday present), and then I’ll happily turn my attention to the bracelet.

                I kind of want to have one of them drilled larger and add a bead grommet so I can wear it “floating” on a chain. Or just buy another and specify a larger hole for a grommet to fit. These are drilled with 1mm through holes.
