    Very, very nice Jacki! Any mother would be elegant in these lovely pearls! :-)
    Doesn’t LB carry the most beautiful pearl?!

    And adding to the question of “knot or not to knot”…..Just wondering, did you cover your knots with seed beads? If so, you may not have needed to knot the thread. From what I understand, if you are using spacers, it isn’t necessary to knot between pearls.
    OK, you experienced beaders out there, am I wrong in thinking this?

    spacers can scratch. the knots don’t. and you don’t have to cover the knots. but all is fair in beadland!! :)

    Thanks, Chickies. I appreciate your kindness. I am into chunky and funky, and it was a real departure for me to do something so delicate looking. But, the customer is the one to please, right?
