    This will go nicely with your pearl and leather lariat necklace. I’ve never seen pearls and leather before, but I like it. Now, how on Earth do you get the pearls strung onto the leather? Most pearls have such tiny drill holes. Do you have to drill them to make the hole much larger?

    I agree with KR. Just lovely.

    Thanks, K and Beady! K- I purchase large hole pearls so that I can put them on the cords. I have reamed small hole pearls, and found that if I don’t put them on a cord right away, the hole gets small again. I don’t know why.
