Doing “pearl surgery” while knotting?

Wear it for a while and see how you like it. If you don't like it, you can always restring it again.

I have a few necklaces (both pearls and gemstone beads) that I redid over and over-- different length, different color thread, different clasp, arrangement-- before I got them the way I liked them.
Thank you Pearl Dreams for your advice and great perspective! I do want to see how it wears. Thankfully, I am enjoying the process much more now!

CathyKeshi, thank you for your kind words and helpful feedback :)
Finished! Just in time to wear purple for St. Patrick’s Day. 🍀🤷🏻‍♀️

Thanks so much everyone!! I appreciate all the feedback and learning from everyone.
