Check out some of my new work on my etsy site www.etsy.com/shop/maggiebokor . I recently returned from the International Gem and Jewelry Show http://www.intergem.net/ with a whole new stock of fantastic pearls. I am loving my new 10mm natural shell coated fresh water pearls for their opalescence and perfectly round surface. The weight of the strand makes you feel like a million bucks. No cheesy plastic pearls...go for the real deal!
