Re: Tahitian Rope - Input needed on placement of pearls

Pirard , I agree with you not to over think it, and I am. I also have also considered the two separate strands as you suggested at different lengths. I feel I would not be able to do the choker and long strand shown below by ManaPearl, unless it was a very short strand like 16 inches, and not be ab...

Re: Please help me decide!!!

Are you ladies having the spinel strands finished into necklaces by the sellers or stringing them yourselves? I've never done any stringing, but maybe this would be a simple first project?

Kay - I purchased the spinel from "the hemporium" ebay. I took a chance, not knowing and I am very happy with how sparkly they are. pinkjewel - I can't wait to see your results! I don't have a project started yet, or pearls. I like this idea by Stacey Singer. http://www.pricescope.com/fil...

Re: Please help me decide!!!

They are both beautiful, but different looks. I wear a lot of black and dark colors, and I love the Gellner Castaway, so I would probably choose the black spinels. If Hisano can't find spinel roundels that will work, you can always go with the white pearls. gellner_castaway.jpg gellner_castaway__pe...
