I am going to try mine again on the back porch its relatively bland day sun wise....see if I can capture all the colors outside instead.
I also bought some things from kongspearl. I got a 14mm round nuked freshwater and two pairs of the 11-12 metallic nuked ones. Still waiting on them to get here but I'll post pictures when the arrive. I also suggest requesting pictures if it's a listing that is not one where you can specifically pick pearls. The owner is very responsive and accomodating!
