@lucida818 I thought I had replied, but this has been a crazy week. I am so sorry for the delay. There are many tutorials on YouTube. I found one that seems pretty clear.

I recommend Pattye for supplies. You'll need a needle and appropriate thread/silk for your pearls. There are different thicknesses of thread. You'll also need gimp/french wire (superfine coiled metal to protect the thread from cutting on the clasp) and tweezers. You may also need a pearl reamer at some point. Also, a felted beading board to lay your creations in the right order. Those are easy to pick up on Amazon.


It takes practice, but it is do-able. Good luck!

Thanks so much @MMtwo for getting back, really appreciate that =)2 =)2 Will look through & practice on cheaper strand of freshie (will buy just for this purpose).
Thanks again :)

I like the pearl size on both strands. I think you would like #3 better than 4. While 4 is gorgeous, strand 3 is a bit smoother and IMHO more elegant which is more in line with the other strands in your collection.

Does #4 have marginally better luster? I can’t see any other difference between the two to warrant the price differential particularly given that #3 seems to have better shape and is more uniform.

Can anyone else see a difference and enlighten me?

It's hard to tell but from the pictures I am guessing that strand #4 has a deeper golden color.
