WOW and wow again. Loved the enhancer with the luscious silver Tahitians. Newberry, you did it again!
You really will be surprised at how easy it is to string pearls. I would definitely use Pattye's Beader's Secret. I think Jacques drills his pearls at 1mm, so you might want to try the heavier weight of thread...but I'm sure if you ask Pattye her opinion, she'll direct you properly! You can also try to string them on bead wire, using little silicone spacers in-between each pearl. That is a very easy way to do it...all you need are some crimp findings and a crimp tool. Alternatively, any good jeweler should be able to finish off a wire strand with a clasp in just a few minutes. But seriously, learning to string pearls on thread is so easy...If I can do it, really anyone can!Purranha how funny!!! I just noticed the similarity!!!! Your pin is so lovely AND so much more professional!!! Soon I hope to learn how to knot a necklace - because I just bought some beautiful loose drilled pastel Tahitians from Jacques, in the hopes that I'll learn sooner than later! Perhaps I'll get some pointers at the Ruckus...
