Thank you SurfnSci. I do to. Yesterday whilst wearing one of my impressionistic strands, Secret Forest together with Hearts Delight the lenght of Secret Forest annoyed me....it's about 22 inches. When I made the first I don't know maybe 7 I made the strands 17,5 inches and then an extender that's 4,5 inches. In that way I could wear the strand as a double bracelet or connect two extenders and wear as bracelets. However I don't use them as such, especially after making all those bracelets. So I am thinking of restringing them into maybe 19-20 inches, that's my prefered lenght for a shorter strand (not really long but not to close to the neck, I don't like that). And only using one clasp. That would free up lots of clasps, but only an inch or so of pearls per strand. I don't want to change the spirit of those strands. When I made Snowdrifts I didn't add two clasps.
That would mean a lot of restringing, some of them needs to be restrung anyway. There's Sunset, Night, Spring Green, Oceans Wave, Secret Forest and Wild Ocean if I haven't forgotten some. I also have some bracelet that needs restringing, some are a pearl too long. They do get a lot of use. Yesterday I did wear 4 of them on my left arm. None om my right, they get in my way and might get damaged.
