Thanks everyone for your sweet words.
Vi, you are bitten by the ripple bugs. Once you start you can't stop. I took the picture under incandescent light, they look better in natural light.
Cathy, I think I'm going to use them as charms. I'm thinking about a charm necklace. Attach the pearls to claw clasps so that I can add or remove the number of pearls on the chain....
JP, I saw this vendor and finally pulled the trigger after I sent a PM to Yunlan who responded promptly to my requests. I believe Kongs Pearl is related to Fandapearl which has shops on Etsy and Alibaba.
