ooooh, indeed! LOVE the clasp!
Seeing so many Tahitian harvest strands on P-G, I was inspired to make my own, albeit a less expensive one.
I took apart my short multicolor metallic necklace from PP and mixed it with two strands I also had on hand, 7mm metallic lavender drops and 9mm white baroque akoyas. Then I threw in a handful of dyed golden freshwater pearls for an extra, extra pop of color.
I made enough for two necklaces, one 20" and another, 34", but I wear them together as one rope.
People at work have complimented me on them. Most of them had never seen a harvest strand and had never thought you could mix and match so many colors and shapes in one necklace.
I just tell them, "White round pearls will always be classic, but harvest strands are fun!"
Your own freshwater harvest strand; I thought so! Such varied shapes, too--you're a much braver designer than me.
