I bought this gorgeous, fat, purple pearl from Kojima a few weeks back and originally enjoyed wearing it on a long gold chain. Inspired by @yssie 's recent seed pearl strand she had up for sale I bought some 3.5mm seed pearls and a tiny clasp from Wen on Etsy. It took a few tries and it‘s by no means perfect but I really enjoyed doing it. I have since bought some inexpensive Tahitians and am waiting on the delivery of some silk thread to string them too- watch this space! There’s real satisfaction in creating your own jewellery (and it saves $$$, my last pearl restring cost $60 at my jeweller).
