5mm Cream Potato Pearls
5-5.5mm Freshwater Pearls IHD:.5mm
With an even coating of nacré, these classic, creamy-white freshwater pearls are ready for your next project. Whether you do our ever-popular Poetry in Pearls or knot them for graduation or bridal, they are worth twice what we are selling them for. We discovered hanks hidden beneath other boxes in an old bead warehouse, untouched for almost three decades. 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) to knot, 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. Please Note, our current batch are smaller than usual, coming in at around 4.5-5mm.
Sold on temporary strand of 16 inches. Approximately 70-77 pearls per strand.
