    Cees is Cees (pronounced "case") Van Oije, of Amsterdam Pearls. He's on Instagram and Facebook under his own name. I bought my golden SSP from him. He has a good eye!

    Yes, Lisa-- it's strung on wire with silicone bumpers and a hidden clasp. It's really comfortable. Sometimes clasps tickle my neck, but this is so easy to wear.

    Lisa, those Tahitians would make a great bracelet. Sounds like a great winter project now that we are all stuck at home.
    What kind of clasp would you use? Or would you make a stretch bracelet?

    croquemadame, I suggest you look for white pearls with a silver or neutral undertone. Pearls that have a rose undertone may disappear against your skin, and cream colored pearls probably won't look...

    There are 5 strands there. Can you identify each one please, from the top?

    I do have to say they all look fabulous, except I do not personally care for the strand 2nd from the bottom. Maybe it's...
