    Here is a representative picture of color and luster.

    My burgundy strand had at least three pearls with hazy patches is the best I can describe it. I first thought there was something dried on them. For the price, the spots coupled with them being mauve more than burgundy had me sending them back. If they cost less I might have lived with it but for almost $1200 I just wasn’t having it.

    Reknotted the ombre' keshi rope with the orbit clasp from the ripple strand. I think Rose Beader's Secret is my new favorite color.

    Anyone want the gold hook and eye? I can drop it in an envelope to you.

    If no one else wants it I'd love to adopt it!

A bit hard to spot!
    Hi Purranha, I am currently short for time (on lunch) to modify a picture. I do have a close-up picture that may help:

    The flawed nacre is a bit like the spot of colorful paint the previous homeowner got on the guest room ceiling. It is the first thing my eye goes to when I walk into the room. lol

    I will decide in the next day or so if they stay or go back.

    So, the large orbit clasp from these coin pearls got transferred to the new ripples. The small orbit clasp from the ripples got transferred to the ombre' keshi rope. The hook and eye clasp from the keshi rope got transferred to Purranha. And full circle, a clasp from my Mom's strands just got put on my coin pearls. This clasp looks better with the coin pearls because it's the same size and shape as the coin pearls.

    That clasp is awesome with those coin pearls!
