I found these pearls in Tucson. The quality of these pearls is outstanding. I have very limited quantities on hand.
The following kind of pearls are rare. These have a 1.25 mm hole. Considering the size of the pearl, which isn't too big, that is a good sized hole. The advantage to a hole this size is that you can use thicker cord to get a chunky look, for example leather. This just is not a hole size you find. When I bought them I didn't even know the hole was this size. I was very pleasantly surprised. You will love these. I have VERY limited supply on hand and when they sell out they will not be restocked.
