    Thank you, amti! I don’t quite know yet. I’d planned a bracelet but there are enough for three bracelets! They look nice next to my neck, but I like to see them when I’m wearing them. Being on the...

    Thank you, Pearl Dreams! I believe I have fixed post #38 so the attachments can be seen. I couldn’t see them either.

    I completed my bracelet yesterday! I found some 22 gauge Argentium silver wire in my wire stash, redid the wraps I had done before, and wrapped the rest of the pearls in that set. Then I joined the...

    Also, thysa, I finally got better at working wire when I got good pliers: chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, and flat nose pliers. (Also I got a cutter with fine narrow tips, what people call...

    thysa, of course! Here is the video tutorial I learned from. Itís the best one I have ever found. I hope it helps you! I have never had much success making good loops before, so Iím very happy with...

    Y'all's feedback is always useful. I'm thrilled that I found a tutorial that helped me finally understand a good, secure wrap, and that I can reliably produce mostly-symmetrical bead wraps.

    One...

    Thank you, Lady_Disdain! That one with the tail was not quite finished— I wanted to photograph them while we still had a little sun! Will definitely trim it.

    I’ve marked my round nose pliers to...

    Well, THIS thread took a turn, hahaha!

    I’m learning to do loops properly so I can make this strand up as a bracelet by wire wrapping. Does that count as beading in the sense of the forum? I found...
  11. I’ve about decided to wire wrap these large...

    I’ve about decided to wire wrap these large pearls with gold wire and make a bracelet by linking them. Then I’ll have enough pearls even without the one with the thread and bit of reamer stuck in it....
  12. Thank you, BWeaves. As it’s coming from China, I...

    Thank you, BWeaves. As it’s coming from China, I may get to anticipate it for a good while before it arrives. I just really loved that particular strand, or else I might have waited to order...
  13. Thanks to all for your sympathy and advice. That...

    Thanks to all for your sympathy and advice. That knot is incredibly immobile! I’ve made inroads, though. It’s just going to be painstaking, I guess. My current solution (when drill gets here) is to...

    I’ll do it if I can. What a comedy of errors!
  15. And I just went after it once more with the...

    And I just went after it once more with the reamer and the end of the reamer broke off in the hole, so now the metal end of the reamer is stuck in there with the thread. Oh, snap! A total adventure!
  16. Thank you, BWeaves! I didn’t really want to get a...

    Thank you, BWeaves! I didn’t really want to get a drill, but I really want to get that thread out of there, and I’d like to enlarge the holes in the rest of the pearls if I can do it without damaging...

    I’m having more of an adventure than I planned. I managed to get a knot of #20 thread stuck in one of the pearls when getting ready to restring them on the mid-weight #30 PLUM thread, as the holes...
  18. Tahitian strand stringing adventure ahead! Would love input!

    These arrived yesterday. I live in the southeastern US and it was stormy and VERY dark all day, so I couldnít see them in the sunlight until this morning. Iím so pleased with them! They look kind of...
