    Default These metallics are on the way—stringing plans

    I hope they’ll arrive soon. They’re 6.5mm peachy purple metallic freshwaters. I got Beader’s Secret PEACH to string them with. I am thinking a gold or gold-filled clasp. They weren’t spendy, and they’ll be my first true metallics. Really looking forward to them. They totally say “spring” to me!

    Thanks for looking, and I wish everyone a good day!

    Thank you both! Pattye, I’m a fan of color—my collection of Beader’s Secret shades is growing apace!

    Lady_Disdain, the strand is ca. 15.5” / 40 cm long without knots. Pearls are listed at 6.0-6.5mm in size. I’m waiting to see the size in person, and then I can decide whether to make bracelets or a necklace. About the shortest necklace I can wear comfortably is 18”—I could have ordered 2 strands, but wanted to see the quality first.

    Thanks to all for helping me look forward to them.

    thysa, I’m glad you like them. They really look so pretty in the photo. If I made a necklace it would have to be a long rope so I can see them on. But I like bracelets so I can stare at them whenever I like.

    Yes, Katbran, they’re from Wen! Had a good experience buying from her the 1st time, so I have another order on the way that includes these, a short strand of Tahitians, and a pair of fireballs. I hope they’ll be here soon!

    These are also on the way. Paws and fingers crossed that no shipping glitches occur! When they and the metallics arrive, they are gonna be on the fast train to Bracelet City!

    I love that size of Tahitians for a bracelet. My favourite bracelet is in that range as well, but more circled

    Those Tahitians are going to fascinate you when you gaze at their colors. I can't wait to see your new creations.
