    Default Large flat FW Pear what to do with it ?

    HI
    I have had a few of these and every once in awhile some thing is made out of one of them. We sold few of these in silver
    so I thought 14ky might work.

    In spite of all we are at office every day. Ten miles from home in country so no buses/subways/trains. Did that in my younger days.

    I always get some of those pecan shaped pearls in white and lavender - they are so interesting and provide a very dramatic look due to all that surface area ! This is how I set some for an American who does lots of TV interviews and wanted something that will show up.

    Cool.

    Speaking of pecan shaped pearls, did anyone who bought those multicolor pecan shaped pearls from Kojima ever do anything with them? I'd love to see.

    Thanks SydK and BWeaves - It's a bad photo but it give the idea . I found it a bit tricky to get a finding that worked well.. something this heavy can make for a sore earlobe if they are articulated - I couldn't see them worked as a stud either though it might be worth a try. I've got several pair - I should use the time at home to experiment.
