    I can't see any of your attachments other than the woven cloth (not even by clicking on them), but that is lovely!
    Maybe try sizing the other photos smaller?

    I agree that you can't sell them as Mikimoto. They may not even be Mikimoto pearls. They may be generic akoyas placed in that box with a made-up backstory. But if the pearls themselves are...

    The photo is too small. Can you post a few larger shots? Include closeups of any blemishes you see.

    Also, what is the metal of the posts and earring backs marked?

    This has been the week for unusual animal sightings in our yard!

    We always have lots of chipmunks, but this is the youngest one I've seen. He's about 6 weeks old, likely fresh out of the nest. ...

    You did a really nice job on those-- and yes to using more thread than you think you'll need! Thread is cheap, and it's a major pain to run out too soon.

    Interesting-- I've never strung beads using that method.

    Maybe try silicone bead bumpers in place of knots? They come in 2 sizes in black, clear, gold, silver and white. I use the larger ones.
