    Default Purple pearls

    Here are a couple of photos of purple pearls from Cees. I canít get them strung just yet as the local jeweller is closed due to Covid-19.

    Beautiful! I like the slight variations in tone, and they’re a great size.

    Seriously, get some BS from Pattye and watch the videos. It is really a lot easier to string than you think. And it gets easier the more you do it. THis is a perfect time to learn too!

    You have a lovely collection. Stringing yourself is so rewarding, and then you can remake the pearls whenever you want to. Also not that difficult really.

    What a lovely collection, CNM. I would also encourage you to order some Beader's Secret from Pattye along with needles and French Wire. (She offers a wonderful beginners kit) With a bit of practice you can acquire a very useful and rewarding skill.

    CNM, they are so stunning! I had inquired about them with Cees, as well, so I'm super glad they went to a PG home!!

    Lovely color (purple is my favorite), luster and size. What a great addition to your lovely collection.
