    I'll go have a look at Wendy's video, then. Her video on stringing pearls was very helpful to me when I first started. Now, as to having you teach me how to wire wrap, it would be amazing to visit...

    Happy Huku, I'm not much of a selfie-person, being rather unphotogenic. Perhaps one day I'll top up my camera-courage and try some neck shots?!

    :rolleyes: For me, it's the full-meal deal—tactile, auditory, visual. I suppose if I ate candy while stringing, then I could get the taste/smell senses involved, too. Haha!

    Thanks, amti. Stringing pearls is totally addictive! It's just like eating popcorn! "Oh, just one more pearl. Ah, just one more. I promise, this is the last one. Okay, just one more..." Haha!

    Thank you, amti. I'm not sure where either of them originated. It wouldn't surprise me if the strand was SS. The earrings are more creamy in colour, so they may not be? I'm not a SS expert by any...

    More Strands

    I've been on a stringing kick lately, inspired by the beautiful examples on this big forum. :D

    I posted one in the Lowly Beaders area and thought these should be in the "Show Me..." forum.

    BW, I missed the photos above. I love the color of your linen top—on my monitor it looks like it has a iridescent sheen to it. It's a perfect backdrop for your pearls. (I adore linen)
