I did work to earn the natural strand from someone who bought it from KC Bell, a natural pearl dealer. It never occurred to me to take a photo. It's very small and I am very big, so I was thinking I would add in small gold beads and make a bigger necklace, but never got around to it. Now I need the money more than I need a necklace and here is the one group that could appreciate it. I held it up to the lamp and as Dave says, they all look very different, several are almost transparent.
A couple items I selected at PP on Friday afternoon that I'm thinking of getting. A Tahitian keshi necklace, which has been on my wish list for years, and this purple-pink Edison drop, which is a nice color to go with my Edison ring.
