    Might try with the iolites first, since that one isn't strung yet.

    Ahhh, isn't it nice to have feline quality control! I like the skulls, too. Only one of our 3 cats shows much interest in pearls, thank goodness.

    How fun Charlotta! Purrfect (;-) necklace to celebrate “El día de Los muertos”! My favorite is the first option with the iolites, the skulls colors really stand out! What a sweet kitty!!

    Thank you linda.wald and Lilpearl. I am going to try with the iolites. I found some dark gold hematite beads in my stash, maybe 2,5mm. I might add some of those as well, they look good with the iolites. But it's to dark to try it now. Might have to wait until this weekend. I have hidden the skulls now. That cat steals anything, once she dragged a big towel into the litterbox. I have the towel inside there transport box, for comfort, but didn't close the box right so she manage to open it and take the towel. Don't know why she needed it in the litterbox. It was clean and all.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the finished necklace. It's sweet to see your feline helper!

    Thank you GemGeek, me to. Unfortunately the skulls didn't look right to me with the iolites either. It wasn't ugly, but looked a bit too colorful. Like something one might draw with crayons. I might have to separate them and use the blue, turquoise, green and lilac with the iolites and then the red, apricot and yellow with some light golden south sea pearls. Unfortunately again I brought the beading wire, but not the rest of my findings and stuff to the summer cabin. I always have beading supplies. I have ordered some more carved red jasper, carved calcite orange yellow jade, carved apricot trumpet shell and some vermeil beads. Those skulls looks great with golden south sea pearls, just not all at once.

    They are really cute. I might be able to make a light golden south sea rope and incorporate the red, yellow, orange and apricot beads as well as the vermeil beads. Or make a lot of bracelets. It will take the other beads a while to arrive.

    I did get some of those small tahitian 7-8mm pearls from Druzydesign, not all of them. I am waiting for another 5 inches of them. I couldn't resist remaking my smallish strand, it's now 22 inches long.

    It is a nice lenght, but I will probably either shortsen it to about 19 inches or adding the final 5 inches and make it 27 inches long.

    Thank you Jeg and eolian pearls . I am really pleased with those small tahitians. The other two strands I use all the time. They go with everything. Sometimes I use them with a 5,5 inches long extender I made.

    Great neck stack. Those little Tahitians are lovely. I really like strands in that 19-22 inch range - long enough to see when you’re wearing them, but not long enough to catch on things.

    Exactly SydK, I always tucks my longer ropes inside whatever shirt I wear when I cook or eat. I bought almost all of Druzydesigns 7-8mm tahitians, both on ebay and on etsy. Almost none left. At first I bought them to make a mixed sizes rope, then I thought that they might be good with the skulls, but they really look Best on their own. My favorite pearls is the silvery white one. Not-husband thought it was something wrong with it...why is that one lighter, he asked...For contrast, I said.

    Thank you Marianne. Multicolored tahitians are so useful.
