    Can you use nylon coated beading wire? Finer gauges and higher ply-count tend to be more flexible.
    Soft Touch is very flexible, for example.

    In my experience even Argentium silver eventually tarnishes. And of course sterling silver will tarnish, being only 925 out of 1000 parts silver (hence the mark 925.)

    Fine silver wouldn't...

    If it's the harpoon system from Cees, it's wire, like mine. Durable, and comfortable to wear.

    I had to google Gogotte too!

    Sounds good-- and remember to wear a mask. You don't want to inhale powder. Talc can contain asbestos, and in any case you don't want it in your lungs.

    But would you want the alcohol to be in contact with the pearls? I wouldn't.

    At least a year ago I bought a strand of Majorica imitation pearls that arrived smelling perfumed. Not obnoxious, I...

    Without a doubt the thread is retaining the scent. Washing will not remove the scent from the string. They must be restrung. It may also be necessary (after restringing) to air the pearls until...

    I replied on your new thread about the same...I think that is an unrealistically low price for what it purports to be. I suggest looking at rings on Pearl Paradise, Pure Pearls and Pearls of Joy. ...

    Annie, I looked at that page, but that is too low a price for a round WSS pearl in a gold setting with diamonds. Something is not right. My advice is: buyer beware.

    Sympathy! I prefer rounds, drops and baroques over eggy pearls.

    I still love my metallic white FWP but some of them are a little eggy. However, they are solid nacre and very lustrous, so that is...

    Those look like imitation pearls. See the extra build-up of coating near the drill holes? That is typical of imitations.
  17. Yes, they look like imitation pearls to me, too.

    I began cutting my hair when my daughter was 2, and never looked back. I have shears from Sally's, too but I'm sure I didn't pay a lot for them. Plastic handles. The mark reads "Fromm 550".

    Dyeing is done after the pearl is harvested, so it could not be dyed in layers, even though the nacre is laid down naturally by the mussel in layers.

    Also, you can take the Pearlsasone course and...

    I agree, as long as they told you honestly what you were getting, it's all good. I have some yellow dyed FWP that are a pleasing shade of yellow, but they are not the same color as my GSS.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. The yellow pearls you bought at Greenhills are dyed FWP from China... but you knew that, right? They told you they are FWP?

    OK-- they are cultured akoyas.

    If you plan to wear them, consider restringing them. Silk is absorbent and picks up skin oils and general environmental grime over time. This weakens the thread...
