    Hello my dear PG family, hope to see some of y'all in Tucson at the seminars or around :).

    Pearl... or Keshi?

    My mother found this strand with other keshi strands, but I'm thinking they're baroque pearls? She's not the best in picture taking, and these were actually the best ones she sent me. Can someone confirm through these pictures whether they are Keshi or pearls? Thank you in advance!
