These are really gorgeous! Great colors.
I recently bought some pearls that smelled horrid - my first time getting a batch that smelled really bad, rather than just lingering funk on the temporary thread. I tried a lot of different things to clean them, but in the end just cleaning them well and letting them dry completely seems to have done the trick.
Parrot Lady, what size pearls are your strand? And have you worn them yet? I'm curious to know if you see similar colours as in suchi's strand. They look like great colours!
