5mm Blue Iris Potato Pearl

5mm Irradiated Freshwater Pearls IHD: .5mm

Unit: Strand
$12.95 USD

From saturated dark blue to electric navy, this limited-availability pearl is just gorgeous. We will never find these again! Found deep in a warehouse of old beads, this group of blue-grey freshwater pearls is definitely old. When they were originally harvested 20+ years ago, the color was created by irradiating the freshwater pearls to create a delicious coating; it magically changes colors in the light. Note: Irradiation is harmless to humans. Just the right size for a Poetry Macramé Project. Holes sizes are consistent but small and will fit 2 passes of Micro C-Lon using a Flexible Eye Needle. If you are using Griffin Silk on a card (with a needle), a Size 4 is a good choice. Expect variations in pearl sizes, dimpling and shading. Even on the same strand, not all pearls are consistent.

Sold on temporary strand of 16 inches. Approximately 76-80 pearls per strand.
