    Default Starting over in making my tahitian strand

    Hello my dear PG family, hope to see some of y'all in Tucson at the seminars or around . I mentioned in another post about my stolen purse with my tahitian strand/earrings and Edison pendant/earrings. So today I dropped by the Pueblo Gem show to take a quick gander around, and found 2 strands that brought me close to tears. The pearls aren't perfect, but most of the pearls had a close resemblance of the ones on my tahitian strand! I knew they weren't exactly them, but I felt that I was meant to find them. I brought them home.
    I took pictures when we finally went home. Haven't given them a pearl bathyet, and looking forward to stringing this! Name:  20190201_202703.jpg
