    And it's strung. I did put a clasp on it. First I wanted to make it endless so that I could arrangera the colors anyway I wanted. But then I couldn't put it over my head twice, so clasp it is (for now).

    I think that I like them best with the mismatched studs since they are a bit smaller.

    Wow! They look great, strung, Charlotta! What a beautiful combo with both sets of earrings!

    May I ask where you source the clasps? I'd love to be able to mix n' join strands with matching clasps. Of course, this means I should also acquire some more pearls to do so. Heehee!

    That is a beautiful ombre rope, Charlotta. I think we need to see it modeled by you. I adore a great ombre and I love those Tahitian color choices.

    Well done! I love the ombre colors and I agree that 9-11 is the perfect size in a Tahitian.

    WOW, that's a beautiful ombre' Tahitian rope. I love the clasp, and I would have no problem wearing that clasp anywhere in front, so you should have no problem moving the colors around.

    Thank you Cricketbug, Red, JerseyPearl, CathyKeshi, Bweaves and Pattye.
    Cricketbug, I found the clasp on Etsy, the sellers name is Beadsfeeder. It's very inexpensive, but doesn't itch or loose color. I used their tasselhead last summer for my vintage akoya tassel, it still looks like new. Bying new pearls is always fun.
    Bweaves, I thought about wearing the clasp in front as well. I can also attach a pendant to the clasp, singe both ends open up. It's a bit fiddly to get the gimp through the holes on top of the clasp. I have to use the fine one.
    I will try to take a neckshot tomorrow, if there is enough light. It's going to rain all day.
